The posts here would say yes to 1866 MHz RAM, but everyone says it has to utilize XMP
G.Skill has said it won't work, and they have also said 'no' to XMP
I take this to mean 'no' across the board? I guess I'll be forced to use CAS9 DDR3 1600?

What the manufacturer says and what the hardware can really handle are two completely different things.
The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.
I agree with Thinkpad4by3 though, because sometimes the manufacturer isn't exactly honest on what it states about its own hardware.
I think I'll order it and I'll eat the restocking if it doesn't work.
I've got 2x8GB DDR3L-1866 G.Skill Ripjaws F3-1866C10D-16GRSL running on an Ivy Bridge Precision M6700 and
2x4GB DDR3L-1866 Crucial Ballistix Sport BLS4G3N18AES4.16FED02 running on a Sandy Bridge Thinkpad X220 (at full speed using modded BIOS)
so I'd expect either of those to work on W530.
X31, X40, X61T, X61, X201, X220 (i7 IPS), W520 (2720QM/2000M/FHD), T440p (i7-4800MQ/GF730GT/FHD),
Dells: Latitude C840, Precision M70, Precision M4400, M6400 (WUXGA), M6600, M6700, Dell XPS 13 w/Kaby Lake+Iris Pro+TB3
Daily driver: T480
