1600 DDR3 with CL9
1866 DDR3 with CL10
The 1866 DDR3 with CL10, as long as your motherboard supports it. Considering we're in the MacBook Pro forum yours probably doesn't so go with the 1600.
They also don't support 16gb of RAM and we all know how that ends.
Apple not offering the BTO option doesn't mean the motherboard doesn't support it.
The highest frequency memory you can use is 1600MHz.
Back to the question ?!
Which is faster ??
If your motherboard doesn't support it, 1600 DDR3 with CL9, since the 1866 will downclock to 1600 and CL9 is a lower latency than CL10.
i think the all natural goodtime family band solution is getting to you...
graft vs host, perhaps?
1866 DDR3..trivial difference and now sure if it would be healthy for the logic board.
All 2011 iterations and onwards of the MBP support 16GB RAM. It's been proven and being used by many on the forum.
Do you know this will happen for sure ??
Have you seen it happen or is there a thread on here with it happening ?
Just because apple doesn't sell it doesn't mean it's not supported.
1866 if your motherboard uses XMP and runs i at those speeds. Though the difference is very small, so buy whatever is cheaper.
And yes, 1866 ram will run at 1600.
And it could also result in crashes if there is incompatibility between the MB and ram. You roll with the risks of using faster then supported ram
I know it will.
But does it run at 1866 or 1600 when in a Macbook Pro ??
Has anybody tried it?
You might want to mention which machine you have, model and year. And also what ram you are referring to when u say 1866
This has been covered many times on MR
Search the forums. Having a quick look it will work depending on what model u have though people have complained about crashes.
You risk, want the speed, go for it, may crash.... But u want the fastest right?
