    The short answer is yes, 32GB works in the G74s.

    Check out my thread:
    http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread...B-Memory-DIMMs...

    I have no idea if my G74SX board is identical to yours or not (hey gurus: does ASUS put the same standard motherboard in the G74 series?), but 32GB seems to work fine in my G74.

    Yes, it will work. I threw in 2x8GB Patriot sticks in my G53SX and it works perfectly. It sees 24GB at the moment, but plan on bumping it to 32GB later.

    Looks like we'll be starting a "32Gig Club" Thread soon! Maybe the "2^5 Club"?

    but mine is G74SX and it says on numerous sites selling this mobo that up to 16GB RAM possible upgrade

    you are saying is that if even your lower mobo took 32GB RAM mine would defenetely accept upgrade?

    The only difference between the two is size. The guts are practically the same. Even the site I bought mine from (TD) says 16GB maximum.

    The 8GB sticks are still rather new and getting easier to obtain. They do work well, though.
