    I'm still running the HyperX 2933 (64Gb) but at the XMP profile for 2666 as it's the only profile which runs with stability and doesn't hang. Running in the default XMP profile 2933 leads to regular crashing while gaming.

    So should I get the 2666 then? Or does it not worth upgrading from 16gb 2933 to 32gb 2666?

    How can we answer that for you? Do you need more RAM or not?

    @dudepare01
    From the beginning, this forum has been about searching for a compatible / working 64GB RAM upgrade.

    32GB capacity has been achieved, but 64GB is a challenge

    this is good to know, but I think you can see from some other threads that there are people who have problems with 64GB (2x32) of the same brand/"type" of RAM that other people have no problems at 32GB (2x16) though, i.e. just because 32GB of a particular RAM works doesn't mean that 64 will work, even though officially the razer blade supports up to 64GB

    I don't know if it's an issue with the RAM or if it's with Razer blades

    It has been good, never got past 50% utilization even in games (only during stress test)

    Got it as it has a faster CL timing (CL 17)

    You will need 64 only if you are doing a lot of productivity work...Gaming, 32GB is more than enough.

    I game... :)

    I'll mainly be doing video editing and graphic stuff also gaming too but 32gb should be enough anyways, thank you so much tho! I literally just ordered mine wanted to figure out the ran situation before hand, I got the 4k 120 version, how are you liking yours?

    I'm stuck here... should I get 32GB of 2933Hz or 64GB of 2933Hz and run at 2666Hz? Is there much of a difference between running ram at 2933Hz or 2666Hz?

    I need to upgrade to 64GB - the amount of video editing I am doing now 32GB just isn't cutting it on this thing. I previously tried the impact @ 3200mhz, right about when the 1.06 bios update came out. That did not work at all, even with the lower mhz xmp profile. I am taking another stab at this months later. BTW, I have been going BACK AND FORTH with RAZER via email. I have argued until I am blue in the face that NOONE has been able to get 64gb ram @ 2933 mhz working with this machine. I will post the email chain at some point. THEY ARE ADAMANT - I AM TELLING YOU - ABSOLUTELY UNWAIVERING - That 64GB @ 2933mhz will work with this machine. They have said it over, and over, and over again. But they are equally as adamant about NOT RECOMMENDING any specific vendor. They are STRICTLY not allowed to recommend a specific ram. BUT IT ABSOLUTELY WORKS with 64GB and 2933MHZ. We are on email back and forth round #10 at this point. So I am giving this another run with Corsair 64GB @2933. The CAS is lower on the corsair, VS the Mushkin ($100 cheaper) which I am going to give a try with if the Corsair does not work. Corsair was gotten off Newegg, Mushkin is available on Amazon. It is imperative that I get this working with 64GB, so I will be making my rounds on these ram manufacturers. And if none of them work, my lawyer will do the rest of the legwork.
