Very simple question.
Will the HP Pavilion g6-2123us support DDR3-1600/PC3-12800 memory?
I can't find any concrete evidence as of yet that says one way or another.

The processor specs for your PC indicate it has a 1600 MHz FSB.
That is encouraging.
What I can't find is info that the AMD A70M FCH runs 1600 Mhz memory at 1600 MHz.
If it does then even though the service manual indicates DDR3-1333, DDr3 1600 memory would work.
Max memory is listed at 8 GB. I even question that.
You can run the free crucial memory scan tool and see what it reports.
Worst case scenario is the 1600 Mhz memory downclocks to 1333 MHz.

According to Page 38 of your Maintenance & Service Guide it does support these Ram modules.
