Maxiumum Ram for 2xDDR3 socket? Tags: Chipsets DDR3 RAM Memory Motherboards Last response: November 14, 2012 5:19 PM in Motherboards Share elizabethie November 14, 2012 4:39:39 PM Hello, I have a HP6300uk AMD II x2 and I want to upgrade it's 3GB of RAM. HP website tells me that it's memory is Amount: 3 GB Speed: PC3-10600 MB/sec (message as PC3-8500) Memory upgrade information Dual channel memory architecture Two DDR3 DIMM (240-pin) sockets Supported DIMM types: PC3-8500 (DDR3-1066) PC3-10600 (DDR3-1333) Non-ECC memory only, unbuffered Supports 2GB DDR2 DIMMs Supports up to 4 GB* on 32 bit PCs *32-bit operating systems cannot address a full 4.0 GB of memory. I have to say I'm confused. 1) I have a 64 bit system so can I install 2x 4GB sticks or am I limited by my socket's capacity to 2 x 2GB? 2) If I have DDR3 memory, why is it saying that it supports DDR2? Please help. More about : maxiumum ram 2xddr3 socket maestro0428 a b V Motherboard November 14, 2012 5:05:43 PM The chipset may be limited to 2GB memory per slot. You could try and get more to work, but its not guaranteed. It is DDR3 memory and that is what you should buy, no faster than 1333mhz. elizabethie November 14, 2012 5:18:13 PM I think I have resolved this. Thanks for looking. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
