    @Joedoewoe if you come by some Skylake laptop / mini pc with SO-DIMMs, please be so kind to try your 32GB RAM module in it. I understand it shouldn't work but sometimes wonders do happen.

    No. Those are Rdimms and they won’t fit in a smaller sodimm laptop architecture. Neobits has the best price currently on the correct part (330$ with shipping + tax). It came in a plastic bag with no packaging. I don’t mind since it worked. @Starlight5 honestly opening the p65 8-RF creator is just like opening the Gs65: installing the part is very difficult and I don’t wanna have to open it up again. I’m just grateful I got it working at all. I’ll upload a picture of the disassembly.

    @Joedoewoe well I hope someone will check one of these modules in older Sky/Kaby Lake machine, one day. (=

    Check it out, HIDevolution is the trusted retailer that installs these chips in their laptops (the fact that they install these is what started me on this adventure in the first place). Go to http://www.hidevolution.com/ create a ticket or call them directly. They should know if the installation worked for slightly older laptops. I hope this helps =)

    Damn, where did you manage to get such low prices? I am actually interested in these 16GB 2666 MHz ECC modules, which have Samsung B-die chips (which I might overclock using an SPD rewrite). Nice job, by the way!

    thanks! here's the link for the 32gb chip https://www.neobits.com/samsung_m471a4g43mb1_ctdd0_samsung_memory_m471a4g43mb1_ctdd0_p13668908.html
    here's the link for the 16gb 2666mhz Samsung equivalent https://www.neobits.com/samsung_m393a2k40cb2_ctd7y_samsung_memory_m393a2k40cb2_ctd7y_p13668970.html
    Finally, here is a absolutely unbelievable DIMM ram stick link https://www.neobits.com/samsung_m393aak40b42_cwd_samsung_memory_m393aak40b42_cwd_p13667567.html
    the last link takes you to what I believe is a 128gb SINGLE STICK OF RAM in DIMM arrangement for only $2562.70 I just think that it's crazy it exists! So what does that mean for people who purchase the new Alienware Area 51m? since it has 4 DIMM slots 512gb of Ram!! but... for $10,000

    Actually no. I think the 128gb is an RDIMM
