Memory upgrade from 8GB to 16GB on ASUS G74SX-BBK7 Tags: Memory Asus DDR3 Laptops Memory Upgrade Last response: August 25, 2012 12:30 AM in Memory Share dogthetrumpteer August 24, 2012 8:20:01 PM Hello Guys, I am planning to upgrade my current laptop (ASUS G74SX-BBK7) for a total of 16GB memory. I checked on crucial.com and it came up with this. As for the use it ranges from some good (as in quantity not my ability ) gaming, 2-3 virtual machines, graphics designing etc. I was wondering: Should I get DDR3-1600 or should stick to DDR3-1333? As CPUID showed, voltage rating in my current memory setup is 1.5V. Is it okay to use 1.35V memory? Current timings are at 9-9-9-24, will a memory with lower timings be supported by this system? How does this one look?
