Hi, I have an Asus Zephyrus S GX502 laptop and I want to add a stick of RAM since it's only single-channel. The RAM inside is Samsung M471A2G43AB1-CTD according to user benchmark. I can't buy the same RAM anywhere. What RAM should I look for so it's compatible? Same frequency, capacity and timings? Would appreciate any help.

This'll help you.

Run Cpuz and look under memory tab on frequency (times frequency by two to get DDR rate as Cpuz only reads single data rate) and look at timings. Doesn't seem to matter much mixing different ram specs in laptop's where a module is soldered but would still try keep timings, speed and voltage similar to be on the safe side.
