    Memtest will show nothing. Test your memory in 3D games. Problems arise during the gaming.

    Hi all,
    do you know if asus n76vz has the same problem with corsair memory?
    I have n76vz with windows 8 and I need to buy a 16 gb ram kit.
    If I buy the CMSX16GX3M2A1600C10 kit, will I have the same incompatibility issue?
    THX everyone!!! :hi2:

    Weird issue with my setup:

    1. Asus N56VZ - S4102V
    (v216 BIOS, i7-3610QM, GT 650M, Intel 520 SSD, 1920x1080 -15", W7HP)

    2. Corsair Vengeance 16GB
    (CMSX16GX3M2A1600C10, mounted chips seem to have an "S" logo on it which I don't recognize)

    16GB on my system simply does not work.

    A. With both 8GB chips occupying both slots, the computer will not boot and will only display a black back-lit screen, with the CPU fan running.

    B. Using one 8GB chip plugged into the bottom slot and an original 4GB chip plugged into upper slot above it, the system will operate normally with ±12GB RAM

    and the weird thing is... :confused:

    C. If any 8GB chip is plugged into the upper slot, with the lower slot empty, the computer will not boot and will only display a black backlit screen, with the cpu fan running.


    In my country, it has proven to be quite difficult to procure the Corsair Vengeance kit, which I actually bought from the US and got a friend to help me bring it here. So refunds of any kind are out of the question.
    Does anyone have any suggestions which I might try so I could have 16GB on my system?
    Currently I'm running things OK with 12GB, but I'm worried that using mixed chip capacities will impact negatively on the performance. Is this true? If yes, how badly?


    any help will be appreciated. :thumbsup:​

    Thanks for all the memory insights. I installed the G.Skill F3-1600C10D-16GSQ 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3-1600MHz SODIMM and they work great. No problems yet. They have the 10-10-10 timings. Was not sure if would have problems, yet have had none thus far. 7.6 in Windows 7 memory score.

    Registered just to add my 2 cents. Originally tried the G-Skill F3-1600C11D-16GSQ but it didn't work in my VZ (graphical corruption/hard lock after 5 mins). Not sure if it matters, but the chips were Elpida. Sent them back and ordered the Crucial CT3768738 16GB kit and they seem to be working great. 11-11-11 timing and 1.35v.

    N56VZ-S4246H with Windows 8 x64. Tried to install these sticks: Corsair Vengeance 16GB CMSX16GX3M2A1600C10. In everyday use they run pretty smooth, memory stress tests don't show anything, but when it comes to games, the laptop just switches off ocasionally. Single stick runs well both in games and during the casual use. My opinion: don't go with Corsair 2 x 8GB CL10 stuff.

    Hi all,
    I'm interested to buy this laptop (8GB version) and I'm trying to understand the right choice for a 16GB upgrade.
    Just to summarize what is reported in this thread:

    Good modules
    1600 MHz
    Hynix/Hyundai HMT41GS6MFR8C-PB (the stock ram in the N56SV 16GB version)
    CT3768808 from Crucial
    KHX16S9P1K2/16, 2 x 8 GB, 9-9-9 timings
    1333 MHz
    CMSO16GX3M2A1333C9
    KVR1333D3S9/8G

    Not always working modules
    CMSX16GX3M2A1600C10
    G-Skill F3-1600C11D-16GSQ
    KTA-MB1600/8G
    Patriot PSD316G1600SK PC3-12800 (1600MHz) CAS 11

    Some other feedback?
    Can someone with this two specfic (CT3768808 - KHX16S9P1K2/16) run a test with some 3d game?
    Thanks.
