DDR3L RAM has gotten kinda cheap since the last time I looked at this. Was going to upgrade my laptop to 16Gb, but I'm not sure what the frequency speed should be. Does it make a difference? Other than opening the thing up, is there an easy way to find out the speed that is in there?

As best I know, it should be these https://www.crucial.com/usa/en/compatible-upgrade-for/MSI-(Micro-Star)/ge70-2pe-apache-pro

yeah., gpus are kinda trashing everything cpu these days. even ASCR gets most of its flops from the gpu's in it, not the cores.
