    Based on what I'm reading, any difference is basically a rounding error.

    I would stop debating and just go forward. Regardless.

    You guys are right. I am sticking with the dual rank 32gb Kit. Appreciate the guidance from you folks

    Welcome to reality. Nit picking every little thing, benchmark, test, gets old fast. put your 32gb of ram into your notebook, enjoy the increase in speed and don't worry whether it benches the best. Once you get past that nonsense using your computer becomes that much more enjoyable.!

    I will admit, I'm the same way about specs. I'll drill down, and obsess about each nanosecond of speed. Internal debating with myself on which SSD to get, which one is faster. Which RAM, how much?

    And yet all I do is browse and a few other things. :rolleyes:.

    I seriously doubt you'll find non dual-rank 16gb sticks.... Plus it's faster (and not just negligibly so).

    Me too. overclocking everything, nit picking every single thing. Now, it's turn it on use it...Don't care what the temps are as they will always be in spec since everything is stock. I used to obsess over temps like alot of people here. OMG, my processor went up a degree...World ending apocalypse. Now, it's pound through some design work, photos, videos etc and no matter the temps...the fan cuts in at time....good....it gets cooled to keep going. I don't have a samsung SSD, I have a kingston. It cost me 99 bucks for a 1tb drive instead of 250 plus for the samsung....why.....for 1/2 second faster boot speed and other speeds you don't notice when you actually do things and not fixate on perfomance meters, and benchmark nonsense.

    Hi,
    By the end of tomorrow Im going to have a new XPS 9700. I would like to ask all of you members. Did any of you made a new 100% clean Windows installation without any Dell related image from factory settings and all of its software included? If yes how did you proceed?
    I appreciate your replies ;)
    THANK YOU!
    Regards
    Watergate

    Hey,
    I had recently installed a 2nd SSD in the machine after a clean win install. This new drive was formatted by disk management. Now when i try to open dell command update to check for any updates, I keep getting the following error:
    "Error While Downloading the necessary catalogs"
    Not sure if this is related to the installation of the 2nd SSD, as this issue was non-existent then.
    Any tips? Not sure if someone has been exposed to this before.
    Thanks

    That has nothing to do with the installation of the SSD and is simply a down time for the Dell update servers. Happened to me initially when I first installed Dell Update v4.0 then got fixed on its own within 72 hours.
