    Memory die's come from several manufacturers (not only Samsung). And in different bin. The best is Samsung B-Die.

    Hynix can run at rated overclock / XMP speeds fine as well. But, Samsung B-die overclocks beyond the rated overclock / XMP profile speeds using manual settings better than others.

    I think what needs to happen is the SPD is going to have to be specially coded to function with Alienware's proprietary firmware. Not sure why they don't just step up to the plate and do the right thing by making all of the normal BIOS settings available.

    Well. OK, I actually do know why, but the reasons are not good ones. They don't do the right thing. They do things their way. They market it as an enthusiast product but withhold most of the enthusiast features that are necessary to qualify it as being what they claim it to be.

    They went damn cheapo on the MB as usual. They rather put the money in the metal body and the flawed Lunar White coating. Quality as you know, means much more than a brand name or chassis build quality.

    Hey, it's about the journey, not the destination. It doesn't have to function correctly if it looks nice.

    On a machine with no ability to change memory speeds and timings, none whatsoever. If that's the kind of machine you have, don't waste money on enthusiast RAM. You won't be able to use it.

    A short google search would bring you everything you want to know. Dell robbed you all from being able to take the advantage from it. And it doesn't matter what laptop you buy from them.
