4 out of 5 eggs Fast, but BIOS doesn't always recognize all four DIMMs 06/03/2012

This review is from: HyperX 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Laptop Memory Model KHX1600C9S3K2/8GX

Pros: Installed 4 DIMMs, upgraded from 4x2 (8 GB) to 16 GB. Improved the Windows Experience Index on my Dell Precision Mobile M6500 from (as best I can recall, I don't have the old results in front of me) 7.2 to 7.6. For reference, I'm running an Intel i7 920XM (quad core, extreme edition).

Cons: About every second or third reboot, the system only sees two out of the four DIMMs. I doubt it's due to a faulty motherboard as it has been replaced since the memory was installed, and I've reseated the memory numerous times. To be fair, it MAY be that the system just can't handle the memory (though, according to Dell, it can). I'll know more when I receive my Dell Precision M6600 that Dell is sending to replace my M6500. If the problem goes away, I'll certainly update this review and up the rating if possible.
