Solved!

RAM Type for my PC

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Gaming 790-0109
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am planning to upgrade my RAM. The motherboard information says that it 'Supports PC4-21300 (DDR4-2666)'. Does this mean that I cannot use DDR4 ram with more than 2666 MHz speed?

hi

16 GB DDR4-2666 SDRAM (2 x 8 GB)

do you need more?

Intel® Core™ i7-9700 (3 GHz base frequency, up to 4.7 GHz with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology, 12 MB cache, 8 cores)

 

the processor could handle faster memory, but nothing says it will work if it does

I reviewed the motherboard information on HP's website and Intel's website for i7-9700 processor before posting my question here. Both say memory type DDR4-2666 MHz. Hence my question, would a faster RAM module work with this Mobo+Processor?

So in this case it might work .. but it might be useless, because it will work at the max supported speed
a risk to take or not!
