So if I update with 2 8 GB DDR then the system will use full 16 GB and run as dual channels?


My system is very slow after windows 10 upgrade from the stock windows 8.1 do you think this issue will be sorted out.


For your information, I have completely rebooted the system. All the files and folders, softwares are deleted but still the system behaves slow and have a lag.
