    I've been having a lot of trouble with Smart Manager after updating it. I frequently use the fn+esc to switch between fan speeds, and now it only works if I literally have the smart manager window open - which totally defeats the purpose.

    Yes, you can "manually" change between iGPU and dGPU. Your HDMI/DP ports go directly to the dGPU while your TB3 port goes directly to the iGPU. There is no way these can be changed, so if you plug a monitor into that port, thats what you get.

    Thx!
    And just last question)
    If I would connect external display to TB3 port it is mean that even under the heavy load dGPU will be inactive?

    From my understanding, yes. At least this is the case for rendering. I think you could still access the dGPU if you aren't using it to render to the screen. For example, you could probably train a neural network on the dGPU and the iGPU would still be the only thing rendering to the TB3 monitor. I haven't personally tested that, so I could be wrong.

    I am new here in this forum. So please be gentle. :)
    I recently bought an Aero 15x v8 and is now planning to add an additional 16GB memory in which will be paired to the existing 16GB V-Color 2666Mhz CL19.
    Buying a 32GB kit is not an option.

    I saw this one at Amazon Canada, its a Crucial 16GB CL19 with model number CT16G4SFD8266. Will this memory can be paired with the existing V-Color? If not your suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    Hello, I have bought a Aero 15x with the latest Bios firmware 8b. I have the described Kingston ram CBD26D4S9D8ME-16 and I bought the Kingston KVR26S19D8/16 to make a dual memory 32 GB ram system. But as I hoped it to be compatible with the Aero, it seems not, as with it in I does not start up and restarts after shutdown. I have looked carefully and the extra number is different from the one above. Above it is 9905703-009.A00G. But the memory I have has almost the same number but: 9905703-008.A00G. Could that be a different version? Or is it because I have a newer bios version? I struggle now what to do?

    Hi Lord_Erik,

    It does look like that module has the chance to be compatible with the V-Color at 2666 (1333.3MHz) 19-19-19-43, but with memory there's really no guarantee that it will work unless you get a kit. However, I will say that in the past I had the V-Color work (albeit at slower speeds) with a G.SKILL F4-2666C18-16GRS so cross-brand can work.

    Just FYI, I eventually went with the Kingston HX426S15IB2K2/32 32GB kit after a lot of fussing around with different kits that didn't work and were on the compatibility list!

    Good luck!
    Alternatively I have the stock V-Color 16GB stick if you're interested in buying that off me, which should definitely be compatible with your current stick. PM me if so!

    I don't know how to PM you, anyway if you can PM me the price of your 16GB V-Color memory that would be great. Thanks.

    Can anyone share all the high resolution wallpapers of Aero 15 (both from v7 & v8). I've been searching all over the internet but couldn't seem to find them anywhere.

    Guys, I've read datasheet about Core 8th generation and the restriction of the memory modules using inside CPU memory controller.

    S-Processor 6+2/8+2 DDR4 2666 MT/s 2DPC UDIMM is supported when channel is populated with the
    same UDIMM part number.

    I have installed hyperx 2x16 modules and it works on 2666 in dual channel.
