I'd like to know two things: - Max amount of RAM and - quickest RAM that goes into a MacbookPro current (2015 second half) version which I believe is called 2012 version.
I went to www.crucial.com where the suggested product for me was CT3373650. It is DDR3 PC3-12800 • CL=11 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR3-1600 • 1.35V • 1024Meg x 64. Right.
SIZE: Basically Apple says that 8GB is the most it supports. You can find many articles saying it supports 16GB no prob. Right. Does it support 32GB? Does it support CT2KIT204864BF160B? Which comes with similar specs if I'm right just it's 2048Meg x 64; which I believe is the same as CT2K8G3S160BM (just the first link is a marketing thing)
SPEED: I was searching for same spec just faster (lower CL) ones so I ended up with these: CT2K8G3S1339M and BLS2K8G3N169ES4 which both seem to have same specs just with lower CL. I asked Crucial in chat and they said they do Not recommend these, they will not work. As of my knowledge If you put a faster RAM into your computer all it will happen is that the CPU won't wait that much: a RAM is always slower than a CPU is (let's say always for this example).
So my question if Crucial is right or wrong: will I be able to use CL 9 RAM in this computer?
I haven't found a 2X16GB faster so no example for that one...
(Sorry for not putting up links. I don't have enough reputation to do it.)
