Aurora R11, ram upgrade, 32GB to 64GB

Jump to solution

Hello ! I bought an Alienware Aurora r11, I have a technical questions. 

 
First, I want to upgrade my memory. I am using the factory configuration: 32GB HyperX™ FURY DDR4 XMP at 3400MHz. I want to upgrade them by myself from 32GB to 64GB HyperX™ FURY DDR4 XMP at 3400MHz. I read that official website says I need to buy additional memories separately. I want to know where I can buy this kind of HyperX memory. Can you give me a website? I did not find this kind of memory on your official website.

The issue is they cant sell you any 3400MHZ ram modules because apparently it is too new and not in stock. I tried 😞

6TCK6 = 32GB HyperX Fury XMP DDR4, 3400MHz, PC4-27200, Unbuffered, 288 Pin, Dual Rank, 1.25V, Non-ECC, Aurora R11/R10, Kingston X6TCK6-MIE, X6TCK6-HYA

So you would have to buy all ram aftermarket as a kit.

If you want to keep your existing RAM, add an additional 32GB, and use it in XMP mode, you'd need to buy it from Dell sales (you have to chat them).  If you mix retail RAM with your Dell RAM it will not work in XMP mode because the canned XMP profiles are different between Dell OEM and retail sticks of Kingston HyperX Fury. 

That doesn't mean aftermarket RAM will not work in the R11.  You can buy aftermarket ram like Kingston HyperX Fury, and it might work in Dual Channel Mode with your OEM RAM.  Crucial has a list of RAM that is guaranteed compatible. You might need to remove the OEM RAM for the PC to post with aftermarket RAM.  Or aftermarket RAM may get downclocked, or it may have stability issues, or it may work just fine.

This is what I had a feeling about, 3400MHz new available on AWs, every gamer buying an AW is grabbing them for configuring new systems, totally logical and rightfully so 🙂

Shame Dell cannot keep up with the demand, but I guess no one can 😄 like NVIDIA 🤐

Upgrades are usually for the future, except their site sells single RAM on new configs without explicitly saying !!! Dell DO something PLEASE !!! for us, for them, for everyone 😞

0N6VG is a 16GB stick. The one above is 32GB.

0N6VG = 16GB HyperX Fury XMP DDR4, 3400MHz, PC4-27200, Unbuffered, 288 pin, Dual Rank, 1.35V, Non-ECC, Aurora R11/R10, Kingston X0N6VG-HYD2

@Darugati 

@dboyrusky  said So you would have to buy all ram aftermarket as a kit.

If you buy aftermarket:

  • make sure you are careful what ram is compatible (Edit: see @r72019 post here)
  • pay close attention to timings
  • check you have 2x16GB modules, otherwise the DRAM Frequency will not be 3400Mhz, it will be 1700Mhz
  • buy a 2x16GB kit (Edit: not a 1x32GB)
  • check here first before shelling out hundreds of bucks

Install CPU-Z and get precise info.

Alternatively, wait until dell propose upgrade RAM kits, it's just a question of time 🤔

You are intending on replacing your 32GB 3400Mhz memory with 4x16GB 3600Mhz (2 kits) ?

Nice 🙂

🤔

before my upgrade, I had the original 16Gb (2x 8go 3200Mhz,  later  4x8Go at 3200Mhz)

When I saw that with the update of the bios to 1.0.4, that dell said in the doc that 3400Mh was supported, so I tried 3600 and great, it works. I think even 4000Mhz would be OK, but they're expensive.

 Finally I have 64GB at 3600, CL16,  I'm happy like this, for less than 320 euros at the time of my purchase.
Good for bigs  files in 3DSMAX. (and also MSFS20 and DCS)
