    Very bad news here. Got an Aero 15X from Newegg on the pre-order a few days ago. Machine was acting unstable generally. Then I tired to upgrade to 32gb.
    Kept the original gskill and added a second gskill of exact same specs (see the pic).
    The machine would not post with two sticks. Maybe it's the ram, right? Could it be the new stick. No such luck.
    With some testing I find that I can post with just the new stick, or just the old stick. I think I could post with either stick in either slot - but not totally sure about that. In all cases, no post with both sticks, no matter which stick was in which slot.
    I even tried two other 2400 gskill sticks pulled from my old XPS 9550 that are known good. Still no post.
    Back down to one stick and posts. It will post with any one of four sticks I have in one slot. But any two sticks and DOA. I tweeted at gigabyte support in case they have a bios update to send me. Already have RMA from newegg for laptop and RAM and will ship it out in a day.
    Take a look at the attached pic of the Gigabyte factory RAM and the second stick. They are the EXACT same thing. This can't be some basic incompatibility - its more complicated than that. (see previous post http://forum.notebookreview.com/thr...5-owners-lounge.804575/page-253#post-10728869)
    Good luck guys. I'm out.

    What RAM are you using? Nevermind. Saw the other posts.

    This is the first I see with that RAM not working. Did you try just one stick in the other slot?
    I have a problem with just one of my GSkill 2400 with the slot closer to the battery. It can boot with one stick in the CPU slot. Also cant boot with 2 sticks either

    I can't remember for sure if I could boot with only one stick next to the battery. I think that worked, but not sure anymore. Laptop is closed up and not opening again to test more. :) All done.

    Did anyone actually receive the charging brick with the USB port with their aero 15x v8?
