Hi, I am looking to buy a gaming laptop recently, very likely the G750JH. Yet I still have some confusion regarding pc memory.

In this case It says the g750jh comes with default 24GB memory (3x8GB) in dual channel, can anyone explain how three(or four) memory sticks work in dual channel? Many thanks!

for asus spec. is DDR3L 1600 MHz SDRAM, up to 32 G.

The G750 range has 4 RAM slots, two under the keyboard which are hard to get to and then two underneath.

I got the G750JW which comes with two 4gb modules under the keyboard running in dual channel. Try to keep modules to an even number because if you have 3 modules, it will run in single channel (I think). Crucial sell some good value for money DDR3 1600mhz 1.35v memory which will work nicely in the G750's but whatever memory you get it has to be 1.35v otherwise it won't work.

that's why I upgraded my laptop to 32 GB so I can be running in Dual Channel Mode across all slots not just the first 2

3x8GB sticks will result in 2 sticks in dual channel and 1 stick in single channel.

3x8GB sticks will result in 2 sticks in dual channel and 1 stick in single channel.

exactly, that's achieved thanks to the Intel Flex Mode which allows one channel to operate in dual channel and the other in single channel

upgrade to 32 GB ASAP to unleash the full performance of your laptop and make sure you get the same Hynix 1.28V RAM
