    I exactly had the same problem with the Kingston HyperX modules (http://forum.notebookreview.com/thr...5-owners-lounge.804575/page-399#post-10975483). I tried it multiple times but they didn't run. Then I bought a 2x16 GB kit from G.Skill (Ripjaws F4-2666C18D-32GRS), which works like a charm. Those modules are on the official compatiblity list from Gigabyte. The differrence between the S in the listed module to the D in my version is Single to Dual. The modules are exactly the same I think (1 x F4-2666C18D-32GRS = 2 x F4-2666C18S-16GRS)

    First of all, thanks for posting. Great info.

    I've been researching upgrading my RAM and have made my way through the mega thread on this site, as well as the few YouTube walkthroughs. From the model number you provided (F4-2666C18D-16GRS) I'm only finding links to the 16GB kit (2 x 8GB).

    Hoping to get the 2x16 kit online but the model number is F4-2666C18D-32GRS. Any thoughts on if this will present an issue?

    Rated at 5,7W, do you have heat problems and do you use a heatsink or not? Please explain because the power consumption is what's keeping me from upgrading...

    My fault, I bought the F4-2666C18D-32GRS and not the F4-2666C18D-16GRS.
