Are you kidding me? If I want to upgrade my memory, I have to buy it from Dell? What kind of <profane> is this?
For the amount of money charged, I should be able to install any <profane> thing I want on it. This ugly expensive <profane> is going back TODAY!
please chill , ok.
what size sticks, and how many>?
? and lay blame last after facts are known. 1st.
and let me guess you want the fastest memory on earth for say $15 , good luck with that dream.
all top makers sell this, corsair, and Kingston. (and is high end memory for a high end PC , sure)
ask them too, learn to find the top makers and ask them.
this what you want , google it , win the price war.. $43 each I see 1st hit.
8GB DDR4 PC4-21300 2666MHz DIMM NON-ECC Unbuffered 288pin 1.2V CL15 Single-rank
shop around then learn what the street price is, and it will not be cheap
What I want is a computer that allows me to upgrade using the parts that I prefer. NOT the proprietary <profane> that they designate. What I bought was 32GB of HyperX Fury DDR4-2666. And upon installation, the only thing that worked was the fans. As for laying blame, it's square in the lap of Dell. And I'll "chill" when I have get my money back. Until then, Dell can <profane> it.
