    Look at hyperX impact 2400MHz. But, 15r2/17r3 supports only 2133MHz. Hyperx imapact has lower clocks for 2400MHz.

    Only Kinston hyperx has same JEDEC and XMP timings which is a boon for locked BIOS.

    so bad that platform supports higher speed ram, but the OEM chooses not to use it.. a.k.a lock them all... and here ram prices are so high, specially the laptop kits..

    You need Prema vBIOS to OC your GPU. Its unavailable at the moment.
