No you can use the 1600 or the 1066 as well, it's documented in one of the manuals.

And if I buy 1600 they will run on their actual frequency, not 1333 right?

Ususally the system will run it at the fastest speed it can. So there would be no reason to get 1600 ram unless its cheeper.

Hi kostadinbal,

the max frequency is 1333MHz. So its not worth the money to buy the 1600 ones.

best

Hello,

Are you sure it is 1333? Because some sources say that the i7 can support up to 1600. Strange , I though that the maximum was 1333 but then I saw the cheap 8GB 1600 kit :)))

Hell if its equal to or cheeper then a 1333 kit why not try it. For all we know you could prove us wrong.

I'm not entirely sure that its cheaper, I just saw some kits on Amazon.com and the 8GB (2x4) was like 43 $

If you can get  8GB (2x4) 1600Mhz for $43 you'd be mad not to buy it, seeing it's compatible and it could get to that speed with the right bios. Because I don't believe there is a hardware reason why it can't get to 1600Mhz but rather a software reason.

Check specs on the intel site. Max what it can handle is 1333MHz.
When I was changing RAM I bought 2x 4GB 1333 CL-9, then I checked on intel specs that it can handle max 1066.
What was the good thing is that when I changed RAM to 1066 CL-7 it boosted Windows index ( from 6.4 to 6.9 )

So the 1333 8 Gb kit will be. I will check the prices again here because I won't be buying from amazon or ebay. I'll post more info later.

Also do you guys have an idea where I can buy the exact same Samsung module as the one installed on my machine? I rather change only the 2GB with 4, than buying a whole 8GB kit...

Kostadin... what exact model number are the 4 GB Samsung in your Y570?

 

Use CPU-Z to find out...   http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html

Kostadin... my eBay savvy friend in Germany ordered this 4 GB Samsung from this very same seller for my Y560p,

it was in a plastic box delivered in padded envelope free shipping within Germany.

I see that he charges 5.90 Euro (additional items free) to deliver to Bulgaria.

 

That's all info I have... Zehn

Kostadin... only difference is serial number and week/year of manufacture...

and my Windows Experience Index for Memory(RAM) increased from 7.4 to 7.6. :smileytongue:

So far I'm happy!
