Hello , good day :)

Anyone knows what it the type of the PCIE Hdd and what model of the RAM inside this specific model (ASUS ROG G752VY-DH72) :
http://www.amazon.com/G752VY-DH72-17-Inch-Gaming-GeForce-Titanium/dp/B01578ZM6Q/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1452736582&sr=8-2&keywords=Asus+G752VY-RH71.

I am asking to know if it is worthy to buy Samsung 950 pro NVME instead of the one inside this model (i don't care about the storage capacity , 256 GB is more than enough for OS , i only care about performance here) , also i am thinking about changing to G.SKILL 32GB 2400 MHZ if the ram inside this model isn't that good .

Thanks in advance .

I have 2 of these in mine: Samsung 950 Pro 512GB M.2 NVMe PCIe x4 3D-VNAND SSD
Performance is great. I did a benchmark test and with the crucial SSD it clocked at 27 seconds. But with the Samsung PCIe it was 16 seconds. Much faster!

But i think that your model is different from this one (ASUS ROG G752VY-DH72 ) which has 256 Gb NVME instead of 512 GB , and they are not specific on the website what model exactly for the 256 GB .

It looks like it's the same. Take a look at HID Evolution's build page for your model: http://www.hidevolution.com/asus-g752vy-dh72-g-sync-i7-6820hq-2-6-3-5ghz-4g-980m-32g-ram-128g-pcie-ssd-1tb-hdd-17-3.html

No i don't think there is a samsung 950 pro NVME inside this model ASUS ROG G752VY-DH72 , i think it's SM951 256 GB , can anyone confirm it ??

The G752VY-DH72 That I bought came with a Samsung SM951 256GB NVMe drive.

If this performance isnt good enough then the 950 pro gives a slight increase if you are going to the 512GB, the 950 pro 256 will remain about the same.

As for memory, there is a current discussion going with that too.
Stock is PC4 17000 2133Mhz 2x16GB sticks
Hynix HMA82GS6MFR8N-TF

If you are going to go for faster memory why stop at 2400Mhz?

mmm , do you think that 2800 will be good ?? , and is there any real performance change when upgrading from the Hynix 2133 Mhz to G.skill 2400 or 2800 ??

PS: i think that the SM951 NVMe will be good for now

One other user has upgraded to the 2400 Kingston HyperX. My sticks of 2800 are on the way, they were back ordered.
Is there a performance change when installing upgraded RAM with faster speeds, well yes. Is it anything you will notice, maybe or maybe not. It all depends on if you run anything that will use it. 32GB is normally more than plenty. I opted for the 64GB kit after much thought as two Adobe programs I use extensively do benefit from more RAM. I cant confirm that the 2800MHz will work just yet but will know soon enough. These machines are fairly new so there aren't all that many that have them let alone those that have them and post here with how far they have pushed them and succeed. Still seeing plenty of fails though LOL (cant find out what works without also finding out what doesn't!)

Other than that I think the universal answer of why upgrade applies to most............Because I can!
