Hi guys. So I'm thinking about getting the RAM upgrade for the gl752, comes with a DDR4 2133Mhz 8GB ram, more concretely a SK Hynix, and I think they don't sell to public markets. So, given the fact I can't get the exactly same ram, I've been searching for one.

In the specs web, says it holds up a DDR4 2133 MHz SDRAM, but the term SDRAM is a thing I can't understand; SDRAM's are much bigger than the one this laptop is holding. Anyway, the port is a SODIMM. Here's a pic of my laptop I took when I was about to install the SSD;

So, the one I lay my eye on;

About 40-60. Does anyone know any other brand making this new DDR4 at a better quality/price?

Thanks!

SDRAM is used in both laptops and desktops. The difference is in the package desktops use DIMM SDRAM laptops use SODIMM SDRAM. DIMM = Dual Inline Memory Module and SODIMM is Small Outline Dual Inline Memory Module.
I have the Hyper-X in mine and it works just fine. I was always a fan of Corsair but the Kingston is just as good. You can also look at G.Skill to see if their price in your area is comparable.

Beware of the ECC RAM

Thanks for that explanation. I wasn't really fan of kingston as the hardware I've touched of it was low-ended, but this med-high end RAM seems way better.

Nice web, thanks! I've looked up a bit and seems that in my region the price moves in the same interval of 40-60, mostly 50€ for the memory. So I'll probably jump onto the kingston.

What do you mean by "beware" with the ECC? You mean to take a memory with ECC tech or not to take it?

Thanks!

Take a memory without ECC. ECC RAM is primarily used in servers and workstations. And not many consumer motherboards support ECC RAM. But I'm not so firm with that. Stick to RAM without ECC and all is fine.

I'm bumping this thread momentarily...

Is there any real difference if I actually did put 2400 RAM in the GL752? Or should I just be smart(and save my money) and stick with the 2133 and just go straight to 32GB? I'm only looking to upgrade since I have spare change lying around... Thanks in advance!

Same question for me!!

That is the one I am looking for buying.

Is that right?

I bought DDR 4 2400 RAM from Amazon yesterday -- Everything I've read said that it should work; however, the laptop won't even boot with it.

Could be I got a couple of bad sticks or it could be the GL752 is extra finicky about it b/c of overclocking or whatnot.

I've got two 2133's coming tomorrow -- will report back (All 4 sticks have been pretty generic ones from Crucial)...

The generic corsair sticks at 2133 seem to work.

Once installed, I've run a passmark memtest86.... Runs hot (89c), but no errors with all 4 sticks.... Now off to tackle upgrading the SSD!
