I have found that there is no need for 32Gb.

I have a 16Gb kit made up of 8Gb x 2 matching Hyper X Impact modules in dual channel and I have never gone over 12 Gb in use.

As long as it's SODIMM DDR 4 3200 Mhz and a matching pair, you can chose whatever make you like.

If both are not the same spec it will run as fast as the slowest module and not as dual channel (slower)

Hello @gdot220 ,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


To add to teccky's reply the machine was tested for a max of 16GB.

However this is only the tested amount and you can try to exceed to 32 GB if you prefer.
