    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..

    So I keep fighting for my right. Nearly a year now and Dell came up with idea of "game compatible :eek:" which made the cpu throttle when gaming. And then ignored the question when they were asked about official documents and evidence for that b*llsh*t excuse :mad:

    So the tech from last time or before that scew up and forget to swap the cmos from the old motherboard to the new one so now they refuse to provide any more support.
    Never buy anything from Dell again
