    Hello, Is anyone could help me please? Does the AW13 support 32GB RAM ?@ 2400 or 2667 Mhz?
    I'd like to know if I buy the AW13 with only 8GB and do an upgrade to a better memory configuration...

    Thanks very much!
    Regards from France

    You are very welcome :) I keep trying to tell others that those XG driver have something very special ;) I always use those XG [allows me to have OC more & performance tweaks & fps increase] and I never touch the official ones... :rolleyes:

    I'm naturally very cautious when it comes to claims like this because I know NVIDIA have locked down their drivers these days tighter than Fort Knox. How does the XG driver achieve this? does it have access to some low-level part of the VBIOS that the regular driver doesnt? exactly what kind of mods does it do?
    Given that a tainted driver has extremely low level access to your hardware and the potential for malware to mess things up (read up on Stuxnet about firmware exploits), I would not take this risk lightly.
    Having spent a year tuning my 1080ti on the desktop, 10mhz is within the realm of stability fluctuation related to temperature change. It's not conclusive enough to say something definitely makes more headroom.

    Anyone want to share their opinion on the durability and thickness of the oled panel? If they ever scratched it cleaning it or what it survived etc.

    Thanks!
