    I want to upgrade to 16 GB of RAM for my late 2011 15" 2.4GHz i7 MBP. What is the maximum speed it supports - 1333, 1600, or 1866? Also what about the CAS latency - can I go as low as 9?

    the correct ram would be PC3-10600 RAM 1333 mhz. i don't think the cas latency matters. i don't see a problem going with 9

    1333 is the max speed it will run at, even if you put faster modules in the Mac. The faster chips will work, but it's pointless buying them as they will simply revert to 1333MHZ anyway.
