Are these components compatible?

Considering purchasing a DIY and I have these parts from another laptop
[Western Digital WD Black SN750 SE NVMe M.2 2280 1TB PCI-Express 4.0 Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) WDS100T1B0E]
[G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) 260-Pin DDR4 SO-DIMM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600)]

Thanks for the help

The SSD is compatible, Framework sells it.

The RAM should be compatible provided it’s native DDR4-3200, not XMP.

I have a pair of G.Skill modules with the same specs and they work at 3200 MT/s only via XMP or if manually configured to do so. So, unless you manage to change the default (hidden) settings in UEFI Setup, they’d work but not at full speed. G.Skill has a note to that effect on their product page:

This product requires enabling XMP in BIOS to operate at the rated speed. Otherwise, the memory kit will operate at the default speed set by the system.

Yours could be different though if it’s another part #. Mine is F4-3200C18D-32GRS (a set of 2 F4-3200C18-16GRS).

The SN750 SE is a DRAM-less SSD, so the performance won’t be as good as it could be. Some more details about it here: Western Digital Introduces WD Black SN750 SE SSD: Entry-Level PCIe Gen4

So, both will work but with caveats. Should be enough to get you started though.

Thanks for the info guys

As @Fraoch mentioned, the RAM you have should work at the full speed.
It is running 1.2V natively, so XMP is not necessary to achieve those speeds.
Most RAMs require 1.35V to achieve the rated speeds, so XMP is necessary (basically “overclocks” the RAM voltage).
Since Framework laptop does not support XMP, it can supply only 1.2V to the RAM, so any RAM which is rated @ advertised speeds @ 1.2V will be compatible at full speed.
Otherwise, it’ll be at whatever the stock speed is for the RAM @1.2V (~2400/2666 MHz).
Just providing a little bit more detail in addition to the previous comments.


I’m running this set at full 3,200 MHz speeds by the way:
