    Any ddr4 2933 ram will work. Straight from Razer tech support. My 64gb hyper X works without issue.

    It will work if it's rated at 1.2v, anything over you'll have problems.

    I appreciate the sanity check question :) It's for productivity, perhaps a little rendering but not a lot. My work tools eat up most of my 32GB RAM Mac. I am doing more windows work these days, and to test the output I run my code/services through Docker and Ubuntu WSL2 which is an additional memory hog. 64GB is needed.

    I bought this laptop as I needed portability, and https://mysupport.razer.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3202 public states I can upgrade the device, and Razor advertises this laptop as easy to upgrade.

    Nevertheless, to devils advocate your question, even if I did not need 64GB RAM, I should still be able to do what is advertised. Razor support for simple answers has been appalling. The support member said all DDR4 2933 should work, I pointed him to this forum detailing the opposite, and he said he couldn't help any further.

    Back to my implied question: What 32GB x 2 DDR4-2933/3200MHz sticks should I buy?
    I am not overclocking, I just want them to work as-is, with the latest Bios update (1.0.6).

    I hope @COSMICFILMS had success?

    P.s. I have been really thankful for customers on this forum helping each other.

    This one worked for me without any issues. There is a 64GB set as well, but that's overkill for my gaming needs.

    Appreciate the link. Going to have to hold off a little on HyperX as their 64GB sticks have reported issues with my model.

    E.g.1 https://insider.razer.com/index.php?threads/razer-17-pro-2020-ram-upgrade-options.64991/ that you got them working @ 32GB, however comments from @pongwon posted "I had less success with the HyperX 2933mhz memory and had more system crashes than the HyperX 3200mhz. The 3200 still crashed for me though. Running bios 1.04 and using the 2933mhz xmp profile was better but games still crashed."

    E.g.2 @Ljcastellano and @_D_E_A_D_ also had issues with them in https://insider.razer.com/index.php?threads/razer-blade-pro-17-2020-ram-issue.59373/

    and this threads OP decided against them and went with G.Skill.

    Never thought a ram upgrade would be so difficult!

    P.s. If Razor are listening I would have paid premium for you to provide a 64GB RAM model. All this faf for no reason.

    Not sure but thank God never had any BSODs on my rig.Prime95, Heaven benchmark, Star Wars Fallen order and Forza Horizon 4 all tested.

    How did you go with your ram?

    What brand is your ram please and what speed?

    Look like to me it is 64Gb 2933Mhz Hyperx, correct?

    Hi,

    1) I read your post in the Razer Forum regarding the memory upgrade of my Razer Blade Pro 17 (early 2020 version, Product No.: RZ09-03297E42)

    I purchased my Razer Blade Pro 17 last December and I read in the RAZER FORUM, that the HX432S20IBK2/64 KINGSTON SODIMM memory 2x32GB DDR4 3200MHz CL20 HyperX Impact 1.2V should be a good choice to upgrade my anyway well-working laptop to 64 GB.

    This is what I purchased yesterday and inserted into the laptop:
    https://1drv.ms/u/s!AhybCTlzw7gTgucrOTscoQzmddqW7A?e=3rnkic (link to the image)

    I am facing an issue: unfortunately, after switching on the laptop the screen isn't even switching on and the green led at the bottom right of the laptop is blinking. I tried out with just one 32GB module and it is the same, it doesn't work at all.

    The version of my BIOS is 1.06
    System BIOS Version is 1.6
    Embedded Controller Firmware Version: 1.1

    What are you suggesting? Should I wait for being compatible over time and wait for a newer BIOS version to support my 2 x 32 GB RAM or better to send it back immediately to do not waste my money on it.

    2) Actually I am considering returning it (the RAZER support is very slow with the reply) and I want to change it to an HX429S17IBK2/64 (KINGSTON SODIMM memory 2x32GB DDR4 2933MHz CL17 HyperX Impact, 1.2V - https://www.kingston.com/dataSheets/HX429S17IBK2_64.pdf.)

    Are you recommending that? Has somebody tried that out and using it without issues?

    Thanks in advance and will be waiting for your kind reply and professional advice.

    I bought 64GB RAM 3200Mhz but downclocked to 2933Mhz. I sold it and bought Hyper 64GB 2666Mhz. Much smoother.

    Unfortunately, I cannot take back the HX432S20IBK2/64 KINGSTON SODIMM memory 2x32GB DDR4 3200MHz CL20 HyperX Impact 1.2V as I opened it already and the supplier just told me that they can't so I have to sell it as well...

    However, isn't there a way to set in the BIOS to run with this memory at a lower speed to be able to start? Razer Support still not yet answering me, so I am trying to find an alternative solution...

    Did you look at BIOS to see if it is 3200Mhz or downclocked to 2933Mhz. The maximum speed is 2933Mhz. Razer told me about it.

    Don't sell it yet. Leave it for a week to see how it goes.

    It should be downlocked automatically.

    The point is that my Razer blade pro 17 doesn't even start when these RAMs are installed. How could I change that?

    Do you have the same laptop as mine?

    Is it the RAM you are using successfully at 2933 MHz?

    I bought Geil 64GB 3200mhz and it worked fien but downlocked to 2933Mhz automatically.

    If you want your laptop to last long, go for Hyper 2633Mhz, that's what I did. I wouldn't trust Razer when they said it support up to 2933Mhz.

    Also, to your question, yeah I have the same laptop like yours.

    there are a couple of threads where people have been talking about problems going up to 64GB. Different people have had different experiences with the same model/brand of RAM.

    As a general rule, if it's not working, I'd return it for a refund immediately instead of hoping that it will work "someday".
