    I know that a question about RAM Upgrade has been already posted in the past, but i was wondering whether a CL9 DDR3L-1600 RAM Module would work fine or not on the NGC-1 considering that the pre-installed RAM Module is a CL11 variant.

    Just curious, because with CL9 i would gain a minor performance boost.

    Thanks in advance.

    @MINIX - Ken I guess you are the one who can give me a 99% sure reply.

    Hi it's so simple just open the box see the installerd memory and buy the same one model but 8 GB (Samsung), I have a post about that and that is it. I did the same (upgraded 8 GB) and work perfectly, preindtalled my windows, upgraded bios , after fresh install updates drivers(one by one from device manager(right click"update driver")) and the Ngc-1 is perfect, I have never had such problems as most people complain. The box has much better performance and all that(with the 8GB) costed me 400 CAD.
    Before that I had neoZ64A and U1.

    I'm just saying that the reply isn't proper for my question.

    Oh...i was interested to the CL9 module instead since the CL11 module is already known to be working.

    Anyway, thanks for the report.

    Afer the last problem with the Crucial - DDR3L - 8 GB - SO-DIMM 204-pin I didn't want to mess about as the Samsung memory is hard to find down here :)

    What I don't understand here is why Minix doesn't even bother to reply to your question? They too busy with the new kid on the block U9-H
