This is High Density Low Reliability Cheap Ram and not likely to work at all.

It MAY work. Try it and see.  But I agree with Speedstep's comments.  Of all the memory I've had over the years, the only failures I've had were GSkill.  Needless to say I don't buy that brand anymore.

Re: What RAM will definitely work with the Alienware Aurora

The Kingston Hyper-X Fury ram memory DIMMs (that optionally come installed in the Aurora R7) have head-spreaders. 

Remember, it's generally a bad idea to mix DIMMs. Only hope is to install in the secondary memory-bank.

Re: Kingston HyperX Predator RGB 3200MHz Compatibility with

The R7 will only run the ram at 2933 max. The Kingston stuff that folks have already posted several times...clocks itself at 2933 on the R7 mobo (as it's supposed to). Technically that ram can go up to 3600mhz if I remember correctly, but not with the R7 limitations.
