2 16GB Ram sticks Upgrade

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Product: HP Pavilion Desktop 590-p0054,

Specs: HP Motherboard model 843B , with a single 8Gb DDR4 Ram stick, Intel Core processor i3-8100 CPU @ 3.60GHz, Intel UHD graphics 630, and Windows 10 Home not sure if 32bit or 64bit. 

I tried to put in 2 16Gb DDR4 ram sticks, because I read this PC could support a total of 32Gb of ram.

These 2 new ram sticks were G.Skill Flare X series DDR4 memory XMP. Which I thought would work with the processor and chip-set.

But I'm here so that means it didn't work, I couldn't get these ram sticks to work at all, both, mix match old and new, and just 1 stick of the new. 

Would like to know where I went wrong before trying to buy more. Thank you

according to the products page you have

  • Amount: 8 GB
  • Speed: PC4-19200 MB/s
  • Type: DDR4-2400

the motherboard, is the one mentioned:

Lincs motherboard specifications.


  • Dual channel memory architecture
  • Two DDR4 UDIMM (288-pin) sockets
  • Supports up to PC4-21300 (DDR4 2666)
  • Supports 4 GB and 8 GB DDR4 UDIMMs
  • Supports up to 4 GB on 32-bit systems
    32-bit systems cannot address a full 4.0 GB of memory.
  • Supports up to 32 GB (with two 16 GB modules) and 16 GB (with two 8 GB modules) on 64-bit computers


therefore you must use this type of memory module!
