    Mind I ask what brand/model you are using and is the system actually running it at 2133 or does it downclock to 1600?

    General Info (HyperX):
    http://www.simms.co.uk/pdfs/HyperX PnP_Apple_cheatsheet_MK1307008_UK_0713.pdf

    Unless you're running memory intensive processes, the difference between memory clock speeds of 1333 to 1600 as well as 1866 to 2133 should be minute in regular usage. Not sure how much an impact going from 1600 -> 2133 makes in notebooks which are almost always limited by disk performance in most applications.

    In day to day usage going from 1600MHz to 2133MHz RAM would be next to impossible to notice. The only way to actually see a speed increase is through artificial benchmarks like the one you just ran.

    IMO you wasted money for very little (if any) true performance gain.

    Are you sure it is actually running at 2133MHz?

    i have same model like your Macbook Pro Mid 2012 2.9ghz i7..so if i wanna get same RAM like you are using 2133mhz..it can work well and compatible with my system without any problems??

    RAM speed makes no difference for 99% of use cases. The other 1% is basically computational algorithms.

    The only thing flying here, was money out of your wallet.

    And why post badly edited Geekbench scores when there's nothing to compare them to?

    Wondering how much of an increase you are getting with the IGP, 1600mHz versus 2133mHz is interesting to see there...

    I would like to see the scores before you put in your ram shouldn't be much of a difference at all.

    Yeah and how did you manage to get it to work anyway?
