    I got the hyper x version the class Latency is only 9which is faster than then that version I hope it works. I can't see why it won't.

    The reason i took CL11 instead of CL9 is exactly to be up to spec with what Dell provides with the laptop... since i got the Vengeance ram, which is also better than CL11... and it didn't work, i didn't want to take a chance... so i bought ram with the exact same spec as Dell memory (which was 8GB of 1600 at CL11)... so i got 16GB of 1600 at CL11... and it works flawless, i don't really care for the speed of the memory, my system is rock stable, all i wanted, was more ram so i can run multiple VM's at the same time... 8GB was too restrictive.

    Called dell and asked if it was compatible . He said yes hyper x is
    He said 16 GB is not supported but is compatible. Not supported because of the Msata rapid start Configuration 8 GB partition. They don't want to walk you through the long task of repartitioning Msata drive.
    I bet 32 will also work.

    Did you get an error message like this..(see image).

    The Third package they sent did pass the memory test Completely.
    But then I got this error message. (Image)

    The hyper X has made it through the tests, so far works grate.

    THis, and all sort of instability like that, programs crashing, games not starting... and as soon as i placed back the original dell memory, it all stopped...

    I tried this like 10 times, so working with the dell memory do all sorts of things, running benchmarks, runnning prime95, everything... system rock stable with dell memory.

    Tried again and again with the corsair memory, and all sort of wierd things... never a blue screen, but unable to complete a benchmark, prime95 stopping threads, having all sort of error message sending crash result to microsoft, etc... i ran memtest on it, and it all passed... so i decided it was time to return the memory for a refund.

    Have you used the windows memory Diagnostic tool.
    I can't get it to boot into the screen seems like it's doing something but I can't see a Status display or anything.

    FYI, came across this thread after solving the debate whether I could upgrade my Dell Inspiron 17R to 16GB even tho Dell insisted its maximum memory was 8GB. I got a couple of 8GB Crucial sticks and upgraded to the latest BIOS and it runs like a champ. You can view the screenshots and various data on the discussion here Re: Inspiron 17R Special Edition Memory - Laptop General Hardware Forum - Laptop - Dell Community

    The memory I got was Crucial 16GB Kit (8GBx2) DDR3 1333 MT/s (PC3-10600) CL9 SODIMM 204-Pin 1.35V/1.5V Notebook Memory Modules CT2KIT102464BF1339

    Link here:

    Note that I have the 17R not the special edition.

    Run's like a champ.
