More about : 1600 mhz 2133 mhz rage33 February 12, 2012 4:13:16 AM I would get 1600 speed, you can always overclock if needed and 1600 is pretty darn fast on its own. e56imfg a b } Memory February 12, 2012 4:28:29 AM 1600. 2133 can make the system unstable. Intel doesn't recommend you to go over 1333 but 1600 is still stable. Anything above can cause instabilities.
