Adding new memory 64gb cant find xmp on bios to activate rated ram.

HP Recommended
DESKTOP-NPI5G38
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

PC OMEN by HP Desktop PC 880-p1xx.

Looking for some help with adding new memory 64gb total, split into 4 sticks of 16gb each.

Need to find out how much total ram PC can take.  Currently 4 slots for ram on board with only 2 slots used with total 16gb of ram.  Want to upgrade to 64gb of ram as above but need to know if the PC will allow 64gb?

 

Also cant find xmp on bios to change to profile 1 and activate rated ram when I purchase it and install.

please help, thanks very much.

@Drag0nEldeR -- the website: www.crucial.com is very good for detailing the maximum RAM for many computers, and which sticks of Crucial-brand RAM are compatible.

 

What applications will you be using that require 64 GB of RAM? Maybe, you don't have to spend only enough money to achieve 32 GB of RAM.

It defenitely runs with 2x32 GB Ram. So 4x16 GB should work as well. But you can get a heat problem wenn 4 Slots are being used. Total cost appr. 400 $

@VH2000 -- you can get a heat problem when 4 Slots are being used.

 

Hmm.

Each stick uses 1.5 Volts, or less, and probably less than 0.1 Ampere. 

Thus, 4 sticks will consume 0.60 Watts -- less than 1% of the wattage of a 65 W processor.

So, you are correct that heat will be generated, but I doubt that the heat will be a "problem".
