Dell Studio XPS 435MT Max Ram

I have a Dell Studio XPS 435MT, i7 920. I really love my machine and figured that I would upgrade the RAM from 6GB to 24GB. Loaded the RAM fine, BIOS says 24GB, ran the BIOS diagnostics with no issues. CPUZ tells me 24GB Triple channel memory. However, WIN7 Home Premuim list 16GB. Do I need to do something with WIN7 to get it to see 24GB?

  1. Answered my own question.... The wonderful folks in Redmond (Microsoft) restrict Win7 64 Home Premium to 16G of RAM. I guess I'll have to upgrade!

    I'm also interested in upgrading to 24GB. Which memory did you use?
  3. Minimum 2 GB
    Maximum 12 GB

    The dell site claims max ram is 12 GB

    Studio XPS 435MT Memory Specifications
    Standard Memory 2GB (Removable)
    Maximum Memory 12GB
    Memory Expansion 6 sockets (2 banks of 1)
    Memory Comments PC3-8500 DDR3 SDRAM 240-pin DIMM


    12 gigs is the max for your system ^

    Your board supports up to 12 gigs so stick with the home premium

  4. I have upgraded my dell studio xps 9000/435mt with 24 GB of ram. I'm running windows ultimate x64 and it's working fine, showing 24gb in bios, system, and windows. So, no, the limit is not 12 as the previous poster stated, but 24GB. The service manual also confirms the max is 24gb for this dell model.
