MSI Gt73VR 6RF memory upgrade


Recommended Posts

First of all, RIP NBR forum. 😥 I just found out while trying to search about my RAM upgrade on old MSI Owner's Lounge.


Well... I have a MSI GT73VR 6RF TITAN PRO that came with 2x8GB Kingston DDR4-2400 original from MSI (model msi24d4s7s8mb-8).

Now I want to add 2x8GB more, and I know its good to pair with the same model/brand, but I can't find it anywhere. The closest I could find was this Kingston model KVR24S17S8/8. Its the same chip brand, frequency, voltage and latency, but different model number.

Is it fine to pair 2 of these with those 2 from MSI ?


Or is it better to go with a complete new set of, for example 2x16GB G.SKILL Ripjaws DDR4-2666 for roughly the same price, and discard/sell the old original MSI ones? Or even pair all together and make a mess with 2x16GB 2666 + 2x8GB 2400 mixed RAMs?


This laptop officially supports just 2133mhz but I'm currently running mine on 2400mhz with Intel Extreme Tuning.

You would be fine to run those, but my only word of caution is I believe that to access those two slots you have to take the motherboard out which could be painful.  If it's roughly the same price for 2x16GB of faster ram, that's the route I would go with.
