RAM Upgrade

HP Recommended
Pavillion Slimline Series

I have a Windows 7, HP Pavillion Slimline Series, Intel Premium Processor G630 with 4 GB of DDR3 System Memory.  I'd like to add more memory.  How many memory slots are on the motherboard? Is there a limit on how much RAM memory per slot? Is there a maximum RAM memory on this model?  Thank you!

You're very welcome.

 

Below is the link to the product specs for your PC.

According to the specs, there are two memory slots and each slot can take a max of a 4 GB memory module.

You're very welcome.

 

I would get the compatible Crucial memory.

 

Memory RAM & SSD Upgrades | hp - compaq | pavilion slimline s5 | Pavilion Slimline s5-1204 | Crucial...

 

I noticed that the Crucial memory report indicates you can install 2 x 8 GB of memory which differs from what HP indicates.

 

I googled the issue and there are folks that indicate that 2 x 8 GB of memory is supported in PC's with the H61 chipset.

 

How many GB of RAM support is available in the Intel H61 motherboard? - Quora

 

H61M-K | Motherboards | ASUS Global

 

System Memory for the Intel® Desktop Board DH61WW

 

So now I don't know what to tell you...go for the sure bet, and buy one of the 4 GB memory chips, or take a gamble on one of the 8 GB memory chips.

 

If it works you can buy the second one and max it out to 16 GB.

 

I'll leave that decision up to you.

Also, does it come standard with 2GB in the two slots or a single 4GB stick?  Thanks!!

According to the parts list it comes with a single 4 GB memory module, so there should be one empty memory slot.
