Hi basitj  , 

 

 

Greetings . 

 

I was also waiting for other members to try going beyond 16 GB on this model.  

So far,  was not able to get a verified working upgrade on this model most likely since it was just released in the market and that it is using DDR4 already.  

 

Seen models that worked from beyond recommended RAM from OEM since memory controller of processor usually exceed whole system max ram. This is due to systemboard limitation and firmware identification set by OEM. 

 

If you can have your company IT group test it or have computer shop to try going beyong 16 GBDDR4 then it's the only time we can decide . 

 

Update us if possible , it would be a good reference for our community. 

 

 

Regards

I'm still waiting to find a local vendor who can let me try the 16gb module before I buy it. I'll report back as soon as I try that.

Alright guys, I received my 32GB Ram kit (Ripjaws DDR4 SO-DIMM] F4-2133C15D-32GRS) from Newegg; popped it in, and it works just fine. Compared to $314 on crucial, this ram kit is almost half cheaper. 

 

 

I uploaded all the photos and benchmarks on dropbox. here is the link:
