    Version doesn't matter from my understanding. 30 pin is LVDS so no, it's 40 pin panel.

    Yep, N173HHE-G32 is 40pin and works with the stock Dell eDP cable.

    I went with hyperx kit since they were the cheapest and reliably sourced. The g skills I could never find when I was ready to buy them.

    I plan to alter the ram settings anyways and to my recollection neither were really tested beyond the stock speeds.

    Do you what the part number was on the hyperx? I want to start upgrading my Ranger with a 32GB RAM and a larger SSD and hopefully that’ll run my work programs like new.
