  2. I know nothing about laptops and I was a fool to buy the 8gb ram version because I figured 8 was enough and I prefer the bigger harddrive, but of course, 8 is not enough lol. One of my friends told me you couldnt even upgrade laptops so this video really helped me out, thanks.

  3. Hi. I have the i5, 8th gen (new) version of the Helios 300 and I have an extra 8GB but 2400mhz RAM. Would it be okay to install it instead of the suggested 2600mhz RAM? Please advise. Thank you kind sir.

  4. Hello,

    I have the 2018 Predator Helios 300 PH315-51.
    I really want to upgrade it with a 512 GB SSD because the HDD is trash and is bottlenecking everything.
    Can I buy any 2.5' SSD on PCI-NVME or do I need specific ones that are recommended on Acer site?

    Thank you!

  5. Nice video but what about M2 disc ? At the moment I have 1TB 5400 is so S…t. Also will be nice if you give so recommendation about program to "copy" system for disc to disc. Easy is replace disc but also good if you will explain swap system and all data. Thank you for video

  6. I have 8gb of ram on my Predator Helios 300. I wish I could increase it. How many GB of Ram can I put? Is the Drive Bay empty when you buy the pc or is there a hardrive already?

  7. Hi, I have a question. So is adding this pretty much another integrated hard drive other than the already existing one on the laptop that’s built into it?

  8. Hello your video is really useful, i wanna get an advice from u. Im gonna buy Acer Predator Helios 300 with
    Intel core i5 8300 2,300GH geforce gtx1050ti 4GB 1TB HDD, do u recommend this laptop, also can i after buying laptop change hdd to shhd.can this laptop work with every type of storage device. Thanks i look forward for your reply

    I want to add extra 16 or 32 ram can u pls check which ram is compatible with it?
    Or can I use new 16 gb ram with inbuilt 8gb ram or I have to add 2 new 16gb ram?
    Thanks,
    And pls tell me is this laptop is 2017 or 2018 model?
    waiting for ur reply

  10. Hi – Love the video and thank you for posting it. I am using the Helios 300 model for the last one year (bought it from Flipkart, India for a good discount). It has 1TB HDD and 128 GB SSD so I am good on that front. It has only 8 GB RAM and I am aware that it is upgradeable up to 32 GB. Which RAM company do I purchase? And will this be 2400 Mhz? How can I check which model RAM my laptop has? Any pointers?

  11. Hey love your video by the way and i was wondering if you could help me on some stuff should i get the sshd the one you recommend for the laptop or a ssd what would you recommend? because i did not know what you mean by ssd is faster than sshd and could explain you it to me that would help me so much to understand ssd and sshd because i thought the ssd and sshd is just for storage but now i'm not sure and is it fine to put 32 GB kit ( 2 x 16 GB ) Hyper x in my helios which is the old model again thank you so much for helping me out

  12. Hi. I have a helios with 8th generation i5, 8 gb ram. I want to add additional 16 gb, i need to create a few VMs on my system so I need the ram. Which one do you recommend? Ballistix sport lt or Hyperx? Also, should I go for single ranked or dual ranked stick?

  13. Hi, appreciate ur kindness if u can check either my Predator Helios PH 315 compatible or not with HyperX Kingston 2666MHz 8gb ? Because i heard my friend said, hyperX is not compatible to the existing 4gb Ram. (Im planning to add 8gb so it become 12gb ) please help.

  14. Question about the 8th gen Helios. I bought the i5 8th gen. And it comes with a 4gb ram. But i checked your link, 2666mhz ram only comes in 8gb. Does this mean the 4gbram in my laptop is a 2400mhz?

  15. Hi, Ive bought Predator helios 300 ph 315-51-510t, with RAM -4gb. Can you advise the suitable RAM for me to upgrade..one more question,, can i remain the existing 4gb, and add new 8gb RAM so the total RAM will be 12gb .?
