  • Having a faster RAM is not a problem, it will just wait for others. – Ruskes Feb 18 '14 at 20:07
  • Frequency was not a problem. I discover my mac do not support 8gb for every slot :( – Gabrer Feb 22 '14 at 21:41

MacBookPro 5,5

Has a maximum RAM capacity of 8 Gig. (2x 4 Gig banks)

You are trying to install 16 Gig!

That will not work regardless of the RAM frequency.
