    Already tested with multiple RAM and also bought a brand new dual kit (HyperX 2400 2x8gb).
    This whole thing cant be that fragile....seriously come on! if i upgrade the drivers from 2016 to today drivers the whole system instable? its cant be right....
    Its a Gtx 1070 / i7-6700hq machine FOR GAMING. Whats the purpose of the whole thing if i cant update my drivers because it cause system instability BUT i cannot play with so outdated drivers?

    You may have an inherent flaw in the CPU igp that the newer drivers bring out due to tweaks for performance.

    I misread and thought you said it did not. Might want to send it in to the reseller. Could be an issue with the power circuitry.

    After almost 2 weeks of testing the hyperx impact 2666cl15 was not even stable at 420 tRFC. Random restarts. I put back my samsung 2133cl15/17/17/35 and it booted with no prob at 2666cl15 and I was able to lower tRFC to 300 without issues. The microchip in the hyperx is garbage compared with the samsung-ram. I went back to running 2400cl14-15-15-36 at 270 tRFC. Performance is better by a few percents in almost everything, but 16gb would be nice.

    It can be luck of the draw too.

    @Meaker@Sager Do you know what the chances are of incompatible RAM screwing up the system in high end games?

    I previously had a 2666 speed RAM (2x8GB sticks) and games would constantly crash when gaming. Also using the 8620hk CPU.

    Off a thread I have posted on NBR, there was a post stating that only 2133 Mhz was compatible with this CPU. And that once they swapped it, there problems were fixed.

    I have now input the 2133 Mhz RAM and I have experienced so far no more screen tearing(which I previously had) and no crashes(thus far).

    So I guess my question is, were there many 2666 RAM units sold along with this notebook? Cause, if the theory is correct, then hopefully others will know as well in case their unit was acting up.

    @Adobo9 The RAM should end up running stable at what the IMC dictates, even if the memory is rated for faster speeds. It does seem more likely that you ended up with bad RAM.

    Mobile systems tend to (unless you got some freak chip) cope with 2666mhz just fine.
