Left the stock 8gb in slots 1,3. Added crucial 32gb ram in 2,4. Totaling 40gb. https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/3135961 Overall Impressions Fan Noise My son launched the chess app on his newly created account, fans kicked in pretty loud after just a minute or so into the chess app. Not super exited about that. Fan has a low hum pretty much constantly. No big deal when it's low... Screen is super sharp and bright. Happy with extended 10-key keyboard.
