Blade Pro 17 (2020) - And the consensus about 3200MHz RAM is? Not possible?

    Hey Razer forum folks,

    I have a Razer Blade Pro 17 2020 and have 64GB of HyperX 3200MHz RAM in the system.

    Unless I keep the fans on Manual Control in Synapse and have them going pretty high, the system will hang. By "hang" I mean there is no blue screen, everything just stops, but the images on the screen freeze, and there are no visual distortions. If I keep the fans on high, the system runs just fine and from what I can tell, the RAM is running at 3200 MHz

    I bought my PC from a Razer reseller (won't name them because it's not their fault) and am going through the Support process with them, but after reviewing a lot of different posts on the Razer forums about this, it appears I'm not alone in this.

    I haven't seen a recent update on this in the last few months or so, unless I just missed it, which is possible.

    Is the general consensus now that the Blade Pro 17 from 2020 does NOT support XMP and therefore cannot run 64 GB of RAM at 3200 MHz? I see a post where someone pointed out Razer has removed all mention of XMP from their site and support documentation, so that's really disheartening.

    Before going back to my reseller with this information, I wanted to ask the community.

    Thanks!

    I suppose since you opened the laptop to upgrade the memory you checked it's not too dusty?
    I've had my Blade for 8 months and it started crashing out of nowhere so I opened it up to clean it and it was so dusty!

    Hey there

    Yep, I open the bottom every week and clean it out as best I can. I only take the bottom cover off because I don't know how to open up the area with the gpu and cpu to de-dust that.

    I went safe with the 32GB HyperX 2933 MHz which has lower latency (CL17 vs CL20). So I suppose there will be negligible difference in performance. Working like a charm since day 1, no issues ever since.

    Well, I put the system in XMP Profile 2 and ran memtest86 and got a ton of errors, so I think it's bad RAM. Replacing it this week or next, will hopefully solve it. I'll update the thread.
