First time poster, not good at brevity, I'll just apologize now to get ahead of it. I'm not a troll, a hater of HP, or looking for people to annoy. This isn't to say that I'm not any of those things at some point or another, or that I've never found myself wallowing in a cognitive pool of self inflicted misery which manifested because I was indeed being all three of them together. I am, however, saying that I won't do them here.
System: HP Envy Desktop - 795-0025T
It's currently equipped with the same memory it was shipped from the factory with:
12 GB DDR4-2666 SDRAM memory (3) (1 x 4 GB, 1 x 8 GB)
Assuming I'm replacing the 2 OEM RAM modules, does this my motherboard have a hard upper limit with respect to the module speed? If I throw a 4,000MHz Daisy Cutter down it's throat, will it actually be able to keep up with the data juggling at that speed? If not, does the motherboard simply run data through the RAM at the highest speed is capable of, or does it open a micro black hole inside the computer case, tear the space time fabric into cat litter, and we all just cease to exist?
The motherboard needs BIOS support to use Intel extreme memory profiles (XMP), which is an overclocking option to run faster memory modules.
HP does not do this on consumer motherboards. So compatible faster memory would only run at DDR4-2666. Memory using different timings (not different speeds) may not be recognized by some HP motherboards.
You could try IXTU (Link). No guarantee it will work on compatible faster memory.
