Is any 16GB DDR4-2666 UDIMM RAM compatible with my PC which has a 843B motherboard?

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 595-p1009
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I used the website crucial.com to find out what RAM is compatible with my computer. I later figured out that all the RAM have the same wording. All the RAM listed on the website said 16GB DDR4-2666 UDIMM. I want to know if this RAM [(G.SKILL Aegis 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 2666 (PC4 21300) Desktop Memory Model F4-2666C19D-16GIS) https://www.newegg.ca/g-skill-16gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820232718?Item=N82E16820232718&Descrip...]  is compatible with my PC.

@Glxcs , welcome to the Community.

 

HP motherboards can be very picky when trying to use Gaming Memory.  I suggest that you contact G.Skill's Tech Support to see if they can tell you if it is compatible.  If they tell you it is and it doesn't work, they are responsible to replace it.  Just make certain that you get the Tech's name that gave you the information!

@Glxcs,

 

Like @old_geekster mentioned, HP computers are indeed very particular when it comes to RAM and achieving max RAM speed.

 

Take a look at these HP Pavilion 595-P1009 (5QA75AA) Users with Lincs 843B motherboards: https://www.userbenchmark.com/System/HP-Pavilion-Desktop-595-p0xxx/91874, and the best performing RAM happens to be: Micron 16ATF2G64AZ-2G6J1 (2x16GB), Crucial CT16G4DFD8266.C16FD1 (2x16GB), Samsung M378A1K43CB2-CTD (2x8GB), Patriot PSD416G26662 (2x16GB) and Hynix HMA81GU6CJR8N-VK (2x8GB) for example, all certified to run at 2666 MHz.

 

Please be advised that not all 2666 MHz branded RAM will actually run at 2666 MHz on your desktop.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Kind Regards,
