@Roushh Can u help me with this?

Are you replacing all the RAMs in your laptop with new ones? Or upgrading (keeping old one in the laptop and adding one more chip)?

Keeping the old one (8gb kit) and buying a new 8gb kit to upgrade to 16gb total

Doing that would make my existing ram work slow

Also hyperx 2666 and 2400 are available at same price

Then you will also need to check latency and voltage of your older ram stick. Buy the same frequency, same latency and same voltage ram stick.

That’s why it’s best decision to buy another ram stick from same brand.

The frequency is 2666 mhz
Voltage is 1.20 V
Clock speed – not sure , its variable

Your laptop has Kingston RAM and I think the CAS latency is 19. Buy a ram stick with the same configuration. It’s lightly recommended that you buy same stick from same brand to ensure the maximum compatibility and performance.

This looks like the RAM your laptop has.

Ok. CL is 19.

So the link I gave you for the Kingston RAM is in fact the RAM used in your laptop. Someone in comments also mentioned that he tested the RAM on “Acer predator helios 300”.

But get the RAM out and check to make sure if it is the same.

@Roushh The ADATA memory is CL19 i checked on the website and I am getting it for really cheap on Amazon for 2100 (seller not fulfilled by amazon, please suggest if I should go for this)

Official website: https://www.adata.com/us/specificati...84

If you want to take the risk then sure why not.

If I were you, I wouldn’t buy such products from non Amazon fulfilled seller. There must be a logical reason behind one seller is selling for 2100 rs and all other selling for 2700-2900 rs. Either all other sellers are cheating or this one seller is cheating. Pick which one sounds more plausible.

I read reviews and the seller is kind of fraud. I will buy amazon fulfilled item. Thanks bro
