    Upgrading G751JY-WH71(WX)

    So I just purchased the G751JY-WH71(WX) as you may have seen in two other posts . I have a question about upgradeability on this model for Ram and HDD.

    I see the Ram needs to be the DDR3L 1600, and that you can push it up to 32GB. But, can you put it faster Ram or is 1600 the max. Is it also possible to slightly over clock this ram to say 1866?

    The second question is for the HDD. This unit comes with SSD and Platter. How many storage devices can it hold? Does it support M.2 and how many of each can you have in this unit?

    The Last question is for the Optical drive. The unit I am getting has a DVD drive. Is it possible to put a Blu-ray drive into this laptop? I know Optical is kind of a moot point anymore, but was just curious if it was possible.

    Any info would be very helpful. And thank you to everyone on this forum, you have been very helpful with these posts

    You will need to change out all four slots with faster ram. Otherwise if adding RAM to what you have you will need to match as close as possible to what you have mainly Voltage 1.35v and Timings need to match.

    The second question is for the HDD. This unit comes with SSD and Platter. How many storage devices can it hold? Does it support M.2 and how many of each can you have in this unit?

    I would suggest you look in your User manual for the layout of your upgradeable locations and their compatible upgrades Asus Support Downloads for a Digital version of your User manual
