Maxiumum Ram for 2xDDR3 socket?
Nov 14, 2012, 4:39 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:
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?

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.
