Your M17x R3 will downgrade the 1866 down to 1600. I believe you can overclock your CPU and get higher RAM speeds out of it but I don't think that's a good idea on a laptop due to heat.

I've read that M3 supports up to 1600 MHz, so upgrading further will be just pointless. But then again, I might be mistaken.

Thank You Everyone.

Somewhere says when your chipset is 'HM67' it will support 1866.

Somehow i don't think I will take there word for that.

I will properly wait a bit.
As of now I have 16GB@1333. oK when I am gaming.

Just need more when I am Photo editing.

The timings look funny. Are there 4 sets of numbers? The last number is meant to be higher then the first numbers. Otherwise it will be unstable.

Do you have an unlocked BIOS? If so, you should find a setting for the memory bus speed with an option to set it to 1867MHz. The default is "Auto" but it may be set to 1600MHz.

It is Alienware A08. Stock.
Prior the SSD upgrade was A10. Also Stock.

I am aware there is a A08 and A10, 'Unlock'.

Not exactly sure the 'Power Supply' will have enough juice If I OverClock them.

Last I tried, Tap the + Key 2 times. Change it to 10002.
Already give me 4 beeps and do not start-up.

The Power Supply is 240W.
May be, just may be my chip is 2630. Not 2760.....

It still under Complete Care until next year.

May be I'll order a M18X by then.

By chance Mr. Fox.
Is that a 2011/12 Challenger Yellow Jacket with Pearl on Top!
