Nitro AN515-42 RAM upgrade

vkkvkk Posts: 69Member Devotee
I just got this laptop . All fine so far , except I find it laggy at times . I plan on upgrading the RAM  & add SSD  over the course .  I see only around 2GB  RAM free with normal browsing   so first plan to add more RAM . The laptop  came with Hynxix RAM  and am looking to add  additional 8GB RAM .Not  really  a heavy gamer so  not sure if 2666 RAM  or faster  RAM would matter  ?

 

Im looking at these 2 RAMs 
1) https://www.amazon.in/Crucial-8GB-DDR4-2400-SODIMM-CT8G4SFS824A/dp/B01BIWKP58/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1544558040&sr=1-1&keywords=ddr4+ram+laptop 
2) https://www.amazon.in/Kingston-ValueRAM-2400MHz-Non-ECC-KVR24N17S8/dp/B01GCWQGIY

Would these be compatible and  run in in dual channel mode ?   There are mixed opinions about  RAM matching and running in dual channel mode  . If not any suggested alternatives ?  At the moment the crucial one seems more attractive in terms of  price .Thanks

    I installed the Kingston RAM which had exactly the same timings as the Hynix  now running in dual channel .

    I installed the Crucial one. And it is working perfectly with the pre-installed Hynix, in dual channel mode.

    I almost got this . Either ways it should  have worked out . The RAM I got had identical timings and Jedec numbers , better compatibility I suppose.

  • Hi,
    Crucial RAM will be fine but the Kingston module is for Desktops, you need to buy a SODIMM module.

    Just curious, after installing the extra RAM, the lag was totally gone? And are the average core temps lower than before?

    Lag while multi tasking has reduced . i.e.  you hare having 15 browser  tabs   and openign up few VMs . If you just want to play a game with nothing runnign in the background  8 GB should be ok .  Win10 loves  RAM .  Now I generally have 6 GB free  from earlier 1 GB .. It all depends on the usage . Ideally try to add a SSD first

    Hi, do you have such a table for M.2 SSD?
    Will CRUCIAL MX500 1TB, CT1000MX500SSD4 be compatible? Or, the maximum size is 256 GB?
    My setup:
    Nitro AN515-42 (NH.Q3REC.007)
    *News: Upgrade RAM to 32 GB
