    Hi Could you elaborate a bit on 'the ram seemed not have worked, but then they did', how did you resolve it?

    Oh, the same thing that happened with the BIOS update. Screen off with Wifi and Power LEDs on. Waited then started doing reboots and hitting F2 until I was able to enter the BIOS and make it in. That's pretty much all that's happened to me and it's worked.

    Hi Everyone,

    I recently purchased this stick of RAM G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 16GB 260-Pin DDR4 SO-DIMM DDR4 2666 (PC4 21300) based on the compatible list posted here. I had no issues whatsoever! It installed fine & was immediately recognized as well. My BIOS was updated prior to installing this stick. I can already notice some improvements.

    Shout-out to HIDevolution! Got my unit from them right when they went on sale & haven't really had any issues

    What BIOS are you on? Dual channel would not work for me on FB07. Have not tested FB08 yet.

    Just wanted to add that I also have a V-Color stick which came with my unit. Just installed the G.Skill stick you
    I'm on the most recent one, F08.

    @g85222456 Can we get the release note for FB08? Is it only CPU microcode? And no memory profile?

    Hi Marltonn,

    Note the advertised timings of the linked G.SKILL: 18-18-18-43
    If your 15x v8 came with the V-Color 16GB 2666 memory you'll only be able to run @ 2400 because of timing mismatch.

    Here are the timings the V-Color stick has:
    • Supported Module Timing at 1333.3 MHz: 19-19-19-43
    • Supported Module Timing at 1200.0 MHz: 17-17-17-39
    • Supported Module Timing at 1066.1 MHz: 15-15-15-35
    • Supported Module Timing at 1000.0 MHz: 14-14-14-32
    • Supported Module Timing at 933.3 MHz: 13-13-13-30
    • Supported Module Timing at 866.7 MHz: 12-12-12-28
    • Supported Module Timing at 800.0 MHz: 11-11-11-26
    • Supported Module Timing at 733.3 MHz: 11-11-11-24
    • Supported Module Timing at 666.7 MHz: 10-10-10-22
    Note that only the second timing profile matches the G.SKILL F4-2666C18-16GRS:
    • Supported Module Timing at 1333.3 MHz: 18-18-18-43
    • Supported Module Timing at 1200.0 MHz: 17-17-17-39
    • Supported Module Timing at 1066.1 MHz: 15-15-15-35
    • Supported Module Timing at 933.3 MHz: 13-13-13-31
    • Supported Module Timing at 800.0 MHz: 11-11-11-26
    • Supported Module Timing at 666.7 MHz: 9-9-9-22
    • Supported Module Timing at 600.0 MHz: 9-9-9-20
    I know this because I'm running both on my machine right now.

    Also an interesting tidbit - The two modules (V-Color & G.SKILL) only worked in one position configuration: G.SKILL in the slot closest to the front of the laptop (the unpopulated slot when you received your laptop). The laptop will black-screen-no-boot in the opposite configuration.

    If your laptop came with a different memory unit in the originally populated slot, I'd be interested to hear if it's working at 2666 and if different memory position configurations worked. So far I haven't heard of anyone successfully installing 32GB @ 2666. None of the "compatible memory" entries are 32GB kits insinuating that it's not possible - despite advertisement.

    Note: I haven't tried the FB08 firmware, I'm hoping this addresses the black-screen-no-boot problem so many have been having.

    I have posted in this thread before, including being quoted above, about successfully running 32GB @ 2666 using Corsairs. Here's a picture with proof:

    And here's a post where I discuss my experience with boot issues after every BIOS update:

    Hi all

    I got this laptop a few months ago, if you want me to check or test something just tell me.

    I hope I can help!
