G732LWS upgrades.

Padraigo
Level 7
I bought one of the new G732LWS notebooks, and upgraded it as soon as I got it.

I replaced the base 1TB SSD with a 500GB samsung Evo 970 and then added a 2nd Evo 970 with 2TB for games. There is still room for one more M.2 if/when I need it aswell.

I also upgraded the 16gb ram to 32gb ram using 2x16 Crucial Ballistix. The website says the laptop is capable of going to 3200mhz but I cant get it to reach that. Dunno if I need to do something in Bios.

Pretty easy to upgrade all in all. Just a couple of screws underneath and it pops open.

If anyone needs a video of it being opened let me know, ill link the one I used.

Should just clock up to 3200 Mhz on its own. Mine was showing 2900Mhz out the box but after I updated to 310 BIOS it updated to 3200 Mhz. Use CPU-Z or even task manager on the performance tab.


Task manager and even Armoury Crate list it at 2660 still.

You're sure the Ballistix you got is 3200 MHZ and not 2600? Also IDK where you can see RAM clock speeds in Crate, I can only find clock speeds for CPU and GPU. Checkout CPU-Z and see what it says, it's a lightweight and free hardware info program. Your BIOS looks fine.

It doesn't do it on its own in the bios there should be a memory configuration option known as (xmp extreme memory profile) which is normally found in overclocking tools but the bios updates on almost all models have removed that feature.

As you can see from this screenshot I have 64GB of 3200 DDR 1600mhz on dual channel as you can see after the jdecs the 2x xmp profiles one at 3200 and the other at 2936mhz this is because XMP profiling is not available in the bios. so until ASUS actually enable xmp in the bios you will always be stuck with this.

Is that why my #1 stick is showing 1527MHz then? I thought that was a feature, not a bug. Thanks for the help.

Yea the preinstalled ram doesn't support xmp hence why I bought new ram but turns out the reason the 3200mhz isn't a thing in our laptops is because of it not being in the bios

It would be nice is ASUS updated the bios software so we could utilise the 3200mhz and not cheat us on this :rolleyes:

Yeah I specifically got the i7-10875 cuz I wanted 3200 MHz RAM. Surely this will be fixed at some update. Hopefully sooner rather than later.

No other work arounds in the mean time? 😞

I have updated my Bios to 310, but I still cannot get my ram up to 3200. I dont see an option in my Bios for overclocking. If anyone has screenshots to help me out that would be great.

ugh.. now my Aura Sync wont work on Armoury Crate though. Keeps telling me to check for updates, but there is no updates...

maybe I should have just done nothing...
