Hello,
I just bought some new laptop memory for my ASUS N53SV-XV1, and am unsure if I would be able to use 8gb x 2 RAM sticks which are DDR3-1600, PC3-12800. I tried using www.crucial.com to get some quick answers but everything it recommends for me to use are 4gb sticks.

That is the exact laptop I have.

Thanks so much

Ok, first of all your Laptop/Quad CPU supports up to 16GB of DDR3 1333MHz SODIMM. 1600MHz should work too, bcause they just underclock to 1333. What I couldnĀ“t find out is what GB size one memory bank can take. Try and Error, sorry ;)
