    Compatibility list for G20CB memory upgrades ?

    Does anyone have a running list of compatible/known working memory upgrades for the G20CB? I wanted to upgrade to DDR4 3000 32GB but I want to know if it'll work first (hopefully)/what other memory upgrades have been done to our machines successfully, so far?

    my question is............why do you need 32gb of ram and why the quick speed of the ram, 16bg is alot for gaming, or unless you are editing alot of videos etc....?

    Simple: Virtual Machines. Also, since I'm running purely on SSDs, I may shut off Virtual Memory entirely.

    yeah my machine was running I think 4-5 VR machines and yeah having the 32gb of ram would have helped, but mine came down to the cpu bottleneck rather then memory, yeah sounds like a good plan. let us know how that gets off
