    I have ordered Aero 17 (KB-8DE4130SH) that comes with 16gb of memory (some sources say 2666, some 3200.. but it is 2x8gb). Anyway, I would like to upgrade to 2x16gb 3200mhz. Which memory could I put inside? (it's 2020 model with i7-10875 cpu).
    Will the any SODIMM DDR4 3200mhz kit work with my laptop? (some of the options are crucial, teamelite group.. both CL22, 1.2V). There is also crucial ballistix CL16 but 1.35V for 25-30% more money.
    Thank you

    From personal experience I would stick with the same model of RAM it came with because I remember my 2019 Aero 17s was very picky. I had managed to get mine to work with Crucial RAM but it would boot loop every so often so I replaced it with the same model Samsung that came from the factory and had no issues.


    Ultimately I returned my Aero 17 and now currently have the Aorus 17x with the same i7-10875 CPU as you and my laptop came shipped with Crucial. The RAM is ratted for 3200mhz but actually only runs at 2933mhz since the Gigabyte laptops don't support RAM overclocking. I would try the Crucial RAM first and if it gives you problems consider switching to the slower Samsung RAM. I linked both down below.

    I got crucial 32gb 3200mhz. Ram before was 16gb 2933.
    I've put new ram and it works at 2933mhz. Can I make it 3200mhz somehow?

    With this new ram I have a bit of stutters for half a second every 10-20seconds.
    I've reset bios to default and stutters still happen. What might be the problem?

    Unfortunately you can't because the Aorus bios doesn't allow RAM overclocking and the stock speed of the crucial 3200mhz is actually only 2933mhz. I personally wouldn't worry about the speed though as it's still very fast.

    I would try reinstalling the sticks and swapping the slots they are in. If that doesn't work I would return and order a new set.
