2B36 2.0 (Kaili2) mobo RAM upgrade requirements

HP Recommended
Envy 750-150xt CTO
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Does anyone have a link to a user manual for the 2B36 2.0 (Kaili2) mobo?  I'm trying to upgrade the RAM and the HP documentation doesn't provide sufficient information.  Specifically, I currently have two of four DIMM slots occupied, one with an 8 Gb stick and one with a 4 Gb stick (12 Gb total).  Apparently the system doesn't require matching stick sizes in the two slots as one of my earlier computers did.  Can I simply add another stick in the third slot, or will I have to occupy both the third and fourth slots for either of them to be recognized?  For the record, the computer is an Envy 750-150xt CTO with DDR3-1600 (PC3L-12800) UDIMM RAM installed.  Thanks!

Hi,

You can insert up to 32GB of RAM

You can insert an extra 4GB module in the third slot.

If you insert two or four of the same size and speed RAM in the slots they will run in dual channel mode.

 

Hope it helps,

David

Thanks for the information.  When I upgraded the RAM in an earlier generation computer several years ago I had to match the stick sizes in each pair of slots.  I was afraid this one might have been the same situation.  A couple questions:  Would I achieve dual channel mode if I put two 8 Gb sticks in one pair of slots, and two 4 Gb sticks in the other pair of slots?  Or do all the slots have to have the same size sticks?  For that matter, is it a valid configuration to have matching 8 Gb sticks in one pair of slots and the current 4 Gb stick in one of the other slots (20 Gb total)?  Thanks!
