I understand that 8gb modules are not officially supported in this MBP. However, this indicates that they are, as long as they are 1067mhz modules:
I also understand that while 1333mhz modules are not supported, if they are paired with a 1067mhz module, the EFI automatically downclocks the faster module, and they both run at 1067mhz, eg:
Here's my question:
Is is likely to work if I buy an 8gb 1333mhz module and pair it with one of the existing 2gb 1067mhz modules?
The reason for this over an 8gb 1067mhz or 2x4gb are:
- I get more RAM (10gb) than replacing with 2 x 4gb
- I can upgrade in future if I want (add an 8gb 1067mhz stick)
- It's much cheaper - 8gb 1333mhz modules are far cheaper in the UK now than 8gb 1067mhz
