Erazer X7847 RAM Upgrade

I had some good help on another topic so thought I would also ask for this 🙂


I have the Erazer X7847 MD60537 MSN 30022557 and am looking to upgrade the RAM - Currently there is 8GB of Hynix HMA41GS6AFR8N-TF (2133MHz).

 

The service manual says : 'Four 260 Pin SO-DIMM Sockets Supporting DDR4 2133/2400MHz Memory' and 'Supports XMP 2666MHz (XMP support depends on processor)' and above at 'processor options' it says 'Supports Intel® CPU over-clocking technology on i7-6820HK'.   

I have an i5-6300HQ - so does that mean I cannot use XMP and would be stuck at 2133MHz?  What about 2400MHz?

 

Also when looking in the BIOS I cannot see any ability to select the RAM let alone select XMP options.  

 

BIOS type says ' AMI (09/08/2016)' and '1.05.03RME2_00023' - I would have no clue how to update the BIOS with the correct version!

 

Any ideas if I can set this to use 2666MHz or even 2400MHz?

 

Thank you!

Hello @Major_ToM 

Well really none of the answers were 100% right really and I think this was because due to the BIOS being set at a fixed speed. 

And if so, would it be possible to update the BIOS. 


The answer, at least mine, was perfectly right.

The Bios and Chipset only allows a fixed speed for the Ram, 2133 MHz .

No Medion Bios update will enhance the possible speed to make the Ram work with a higher MHz rate.

Hi @PocketDog ,

 

in addition to @daddle ´s (right) post and your confirmation, that your BIOS version is 1.05.03RME2 you maybe at least should try updating the Bios up to 1.05.08RME3 via using the device manager.
Choose "Firmware" and try updating System Formware and update via WU up to 1.05.08RME3

 

Cheers

Yes I am running 1.05.03RME2.  If I got to Device Manager I have a generic listing :

PocketDog_0-1616209233970.png

and there are no updated via WU.

I have found this link here

http://www1.medion.de/downloads/index.pl?op=detail&id=17387&type=treiber&lang=uk

that appears to give the 1.05.08RME3 BIOS however I am somewhat nervous of using this as officially Medion do not now appear to provide downloads and the new RAM is working fine (if slower than I hoped).  I would be super upset to cause a problem trying to do this when I had no big issue, so unsure whether to try it or not.

If you read carefully all the post on this thread and the update description you get your answers.

extras from update description "This driver accordingly this software improves the overall system stability due to an update of the CPU micro code and is compatible to the following product series...

Attention:
For any errors, caused by the execution of this update, we don´ t accept any responsibility for damage or lost of data.The customer agrees with that fact by executing the update."

In this thread was mentioned that the proper RAM frequency according to CPU is 2133MHz and any attempt to change that will make the system unstable at the best (FUBAR at the worse if something goes wrong with the bios update). 

It might not be the information you were hopping but there are accurate.

 

Other than that, the feeling of new ram being slower can be from high latency (CAS).

 

Good luck.
