Does lenovo Ideapad Y500 support 1866Mhz DDR3 RAM

Is the use of 1866Mhz DDR3 RAM supported on the Y500?

Hello Maxxender,

 

I checked the hardware maintenance manual, it does not show support for more than 1600mhz speed per RAM stick for the Y500.

there is a bios mod that allows setting the ram speed. dont know if it works though.  ram bandwidth doesnt matter. performance gains are marginal. Plus it causes additional heat.
