hi, this is my first post here,
i search a lot of posts but couldnt find a specific answer, so i'll just ask directly
i recently bought a HP p6754y, it has 4 dd3 slots, so i figured i could stick in 4x4gb dd3 modules and have a total of 16gb of ram, but now im looking in the hp website and it says the max amount of ram for this system is 8gb,
so am i missing something? 4x4gb dd3 wont work on my system? how come?
i have windows 7 64bit home premium and currently have 2x2gb dd3, and 2 unused slots, for a total of 4gb of memory.
Manufacturer: Foxconn N-Alvorix RS880
Form factor: uATX
Chipset: AMD 785G
Memory sockets: 4 x DDR3
Front side bus speeds: 1333/1066/800MHz
Processor socket: AM3
400w power supply
Some will only take 8gb of ram some will take 16gb, if hp sed ur comp will only take 8 gb of ram then its ur board thats letting u down if it was me id bye a new board with nvidia chipset and 16gb of ram, ull have a rocket lol
I would upgrade to the max that the board allows that is 8GB, you will not notice any performance difference between 8Gb and 16GB unless you are doing heavy 3d rendering or transcoding on your PC. (chances are that you would not have a HP if you did)
