Razer Blade Pro 17 2020 Ram Issue

    I bought the below 64GB ram kit to upgrade my 2020 Razer Blade Pro 17. I'm having BSOD and sometimes it just stays in the razer logo forever. When I insert the original Ram that comes with the computer, I don't have any problem. As a test, I installed in one slot the 32 GB (HyperX), and in the second slot, the 8GB (original that comes with the laptop) and the computer work fine. The issue happens only when I connect both Hyper X Ram 64GB.

    I reset the computer to factory settings, and updated the BIOS to the latest version 1.03 but the issue still present. Razer please help!!

    See the amazon link below for the RAM I bought.

    HyperX Impact 64GB 2933MHz DDR4 CL17 SODIMM (Kit of 2) Laptop Memory HX429S17IBK2/64

    The issue is the BIOS and Razer need to address that. I couldn't wait for Razer and I just returned the Hyper RAM and I bought two of the Samsung 32GB DDR4 2666MHz RAM. The downside is the speed 2666MHz but it is running fine.

    hey thanks for letting me know buddy, I think I will stick with using one of the HyperX dimms + one of the dimms that came with the computer.

    I will chase Razer on this tho until I get more answers about when we can expect an update that resolves this problem.

    Hey thanks for your reply, I have submitted case (*Omitted for security purpose) for this and some "Zach R" is helping me with it, please guys I really hope you have something for us as Im for sure returning this laptop if I cant max it out with 64GB as advertised, I dont want to because I love my Razer but I will because one of the purposes of the purchase was to run it with 64GB of RAM.

    I bought this RAM and have tried it on 3x separate 2020 Razer Blade 17-inch laptops. Every Razer 2020 17-inch will BSOD. I also tried to update the Bios Firmware on one Razer but this did nothing. Also, I tried 64GB 2x32Gb HyperX 2666Mhz in the first laptop before buying the HyperX 2x 32Gb 2933Mhz RAM. Both HyperX 64GB Ram set speeds produce a loop and reboot of BSODs in the early 2020 Razer Blade 17-inch Laptop.

    Hey Guys,
    I don't know, but why can't Razer provide the RAM information / problems for our "Razer Blade Pro 17 (Early 2020) and its capabilities as information for us users.
    But nice that all here have tried all possible RAM bars. Saved me a couple of different RAM purchases.
    I tried the "Crucial Ballistix SO-DIMM Kit 64GB, DDR4-3200, CL16-18-18-36 (BL2K32G32C16S4B)" in my new Blade and got it up and running. Unfortunately, luck didn't last long with the 64GB from Crucial and my NB always got stuck after a few minutes. The yield with the desired MHz was not what I had hoped for (2666Mhz) and XMP with BIOS 1.03 does not work either. The blade didn't even start.
    I have now bought 2x 32GB bars from Samsung and the NB started without any problems or automatic adjustments.
    > Samsung SO-DIMM 32GB DDR4-3200 CL22 2Gx8 DR * M471A4G43AB1-CWE * - https://www.samsung.com/semiconductor/dram/module/M471A4G43AB1-CWE/
    Clearly the RAM doesn't have the best CL | tRCD | tRP | tRAS values, but it works without problems, gets 2933MHz (like the 16GB Stock RAM bars) and that's the most important thing for me.
    I don't want to wait 6x months until I get feedback from Razer / a new BIOS appears and then I can buy a Ram bar that delivers a "few" better values.

    So I hope I can help you or the upcoming users who buy a Razer Blade Pro 17 and upgrade to 64GB.

    Bye games / follower of RAZER

    Hello, I also tried upgrading my Razor Blade Pro 17 today, using 2x32GB HyperX 2933/CL17 DDR4 RAM.
    (I also submitted this case to support)

    The machine boots with 64GB, but Windows would BSOD soon afterward. I actually managed to start Forza 4 and start playing the first time, but then...

    I was curious, that perhaps one of the sticks was defective, so I tried with only one, and then only the other 32GB stick inserted into one slot. The machine worked fine.

    Then I put in one of the original 8GB sticks into the other slot, and the machine is still working fine with 40GB of RAM since. No issues so far. I tried swapping both 32GB sticks, so they are also OK.

    This seems to be a BIOS issue (to me), as only the 64GB configuration is problematic.

    It would be nice to get advice on this quickly, as I can still return the RAM for a full refund if using them both is not possible for some reason.
