    I just replaced the single stick of memory in my 15X with a dual channel kit, and I thought I'd post the benchmark results before and after in case anyone is curious.

    First, the kit I installed was this: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA8N25Z22089

    I did have to unplug the battery in order to get the machine to boot with the new memory.

    MaxxMEM2
    Before: 18.25 GB/sec memory score
    After: 24.81 GB/sec memory score

    GeekBench 4
    Before: 4722 Single-Core/18233 Multi-Core
    After: 5053 Single-Core/21455 Multi-Core

    Certainly seems like a worthwhile upgrade.

    Hi guys,

    Has anyone installed 2 modules (dual-channel) of RAM to the Aero-15x (8750H) with 2666 Mhz frequency?
    Could you please point me to the appropriate message on a forum, if possible.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the good news. So, just for clarify, do you have Aero 15x v8 (with Core i7 8750H)?

    Can you please attach screenshots from CPU-Z here? Memory, SPD and first tab.

    Thanks in advance!

    This may be a rare case, but has anyone had one of the keycap hinges break?

    One of my keys popped out the other day. Everything is intact except the plastic hinge - one of the ears had snapped off. I confirmed it was the problem by removing another keycap and swapping the known-working hinge with the broken one.

    So now I just need a single hinge (and maybe a few extras just in case this happens again). I can't picture doing an RMA just for a single plastic hinge, and I'm also unable to find the part for sale anywhere.

    Has anyone dealt with gigabyte support for an issue like this?

    Mine came with the V-color ram and I added a Crucial 16gb 2666mhz fine (it's also listed on their website under Aero 15x compatible modules). The laptop booted right away and I have not had any issues.
