I get that but why upload a firmware update that is really not a update at all.

I was hoping to have XMP availability...  again a disappointment.

I get it that pre-builds will have limited BIOS options but since 1600MHz JEDEC memory is almost impossible to find and those who does exist (like kingston HX432C18FB/16) are unavailable.

This is a huge limitation :(

I bought some corsair vengeance 3200mhz memory for it but clock speeds was limited to 2133mhz since we have no XMP profile in are Bios and I am afraid we are **bleep** out of luck. I returned it and got some crucial non gamer memory at 3200mhz CL22 high latency specific to our desktop to run at 3200mhz. Ill repost with the results once I install it.

Funny, I did exactly the same except I bought the vengeance 3600 (3200 was not in stock), I had only one module so at least I will have Dual Channel now what will be a better improvement then 22 vs 18 CAS.

Yah the memory ubgradability in this machine is a joke. I love the look and quality of everything on r desktop except for that cheap legion ram, its pretty much normal cheap ram made to look like gamer ram.

As expected the memory upgrade was a success. If you buy normal aka green sticks non OC memory you are good to go. I bought 32 gigs 3200mhz CL22  of crucial PN CT2K16G4DFD832A avoid buying gamer memory unless you don't mind to run the reduced jedec rated speed. That legion memory that we have is not gamer memory the heatsink it has are for visuals only. Unless we get XMP in a future bios update "not going to happen" we are out of lucky. What prop could happen is we get resizable BAR for are Nvidia cards in a future update.

Its great that you got sorted. Let's be right, unless you are benching you won't really see a difference in real world gaming using normal memory. 

 

That doesn't let Lenovo off the hook though. 

 

Unlock the bios and let us decide what we do with the desktop we have all paid a lot of money for !!!!!!!

For sure, we need Resizeable BAR support and unlock the BIOS.

The thing about resizeable bar is that at present there are only a handful of games that support it. These games have it as a bolt on rather than built from the ground up to support it. 

 

Just wait till the first games come out that truly support it from release. 20 to 30% improvements you will be looking at

I bought the similar Crucial CT2K16G4DFRA32A 32GB (2x16GB Kit) 3200mhz CL22 and can confirm it does work also @3200MHz.

 

I'm going to try another kit, LC-Power LC-RAM-DDR4-3200-RGB-32GB-KIT that should arrive tomorrow. It has not that many specs available however what is available is mentioning 'JEDEC norm PC4-25600'. That is also DDR4-3200 however it should run at CL19.
