I just purchased a i7-9750H laptop (On its way) with 2 RAM slots. From the manual (https://www.sagernotebook.com/drivers/manual/Manual_NP8377.zip):

Dual Channel DDR4
Two 260 Pins SO-DIMM Sockets
Supporting DDR4 2666 MHz
Memory Modules (real operational
frequency depends on the FSB of the
processor)
Memory Expandable from 8GB to 64GB,
Compatible with 4GB, 8GB, 16GB or
32GB Modules
Supports XMP 3000MHz (XMP Support
Depends on Processor)

Problem: I can't find any 32GB 3000MHz modules so that I can get to 64GB at 3000MHz. I would go with something between 2666 and 3000 but as you can see above, it doesn't specifically list any other frequencies but 2666 and 3000. Can I use frequencies in between or does it have to be one or the other? Or does anyone know where I can find 3000MHz 32GB modules?

You can use anything less than DDR4 3000.

That said, 64GB of RAM is a LOT. Like, holy cow that is a freakin LOT, a lot. Anything more than 16GB is wasted in most use cases. What is the use case if you don't mind my asking?
software engineer. I have 32 on my desktop but I routinely run out of RAM between running VMs, my IDEs, and browser tabs.
