    Do NOT buy any corsair RAM for Dell Precision laptop, it is not guaranteed to work. At least for me, wasted money for 1866Mhz Corsair RAM.
    Buy Kingston HyperX instead.

    Third... Corsair in my M6700 was a disaster... Causing periodic lock-ups and took me forever to figure out what was causing the problem.

    My M6800 are running the Kingston HyperX 2133MHz 32GB. Works like a charm!

    Should work in the M4600... You will be the first to find out!

    Yeah, M4800 and M6800 were built to accept faster RAM cards...
    Someone confirmed 1866MHz works on M4600 but 2133MHz is not sure yet.
    Once you get 32GB 2133Mhz RAM, your CPU get 10% performance boost.

    If I remember my stuff correctly, at some point, Corsair screwed up something with their JDEC/XMP tables for some of their RAM and that was why it wasn't playing nice with Precisions. I am recalling this from way back when, so I could be wrong.

    Still, the corsair RAM problems were limited to very specific SODIMMs (frequency and capacity), but those would not work at all in Precisions. My 1600 MHz 8 GB SOIMMMs have been working fine, but overall, I'd still avoid the Corsair SODIMMs given that they put out more than one model that wasn't playing nice.

    Kingston which was recommended is a good choice, GSkill RAM is also good and Crucial/Micron also makes good RAM.

    Did you have to do anything special to get it to accept the 2133 modules? I have a M4800, but seeing as the biggest different is the screen size (size of the machine) it should work the same way. Ive been wanting to replace the 1600 modules with something faster. Probably wont go more than 16GB as I hardly, if ever, push that much. The most I usually ever use is 12GB when running VMs.
