TPE01-3254

Hi... TPE01-3254 memory upgrade.. Crucial suggests 64gb  but I see at HP the motherboard "Supports up to 32 GB (unbuffered) with two 16 GB DIMMs on 64-bit systems,"..as 16 gb came pre installed is it just best to just try matching the the memory as exact as possible or to buy a set of matching 16gb  memory for operation smoothness ? 

Is 64gb out of question? Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance for your time

Jim

@dotbiz1,

 

Welcome to our HP User Forum!

 

Even though the limit of installed RAM in your HP ENVY Desktop TE01-3254 PC (319L6AA) according to https://support.hp.com/au-en/document/c08132262 is 2 x 16GB, I can confirm that Crucial is correct: you could install 2 x 32GB DDR4 PC4-25600, 3200 MHz, Non-ECC, Unbuffered, UDIMM, 288-pin RAM sticks.  Here is another link confirming this: https://www.memorystock.com/memory/HewlettPackardENVYTE013254.html.

 

Thing is, almost no PC User needs this much RAM.

 

Hope this was helpful.

 

Kind Regards,

Well thank you NonSequitur777 I was checking my options before I make any decisions as my needs are modest and of course I'd like to increase performance and the low hanging fruit looks like the memory but as I'm brand new to Windows 11 I'm not sure what is a learning curve vs the Machine...   a little different getting around 11 so everything seems lagging.. though I'm a big part of it for now..

Pretty sure there's a Micron 16 gb in there now.. perhaps I'll just try to find another Micron 16 to pair it up with for now and see what if anything is needed later.

@dotbiz1,

 

You are very welcome -anytime.

 

Speaking of increasing performance, I have some suggestions.

 

Your desktop is probably fitted with either the i5-12400 or i7-12700 processor, both are top-notch.

 

According to:  https://files.bbystatic.com/ImNrWLSUydF7Xh2k9ehBig%3D%3D/Datasheet, your desktop is fitted with a single 16GB RAM stick.  I would check that: type in: cmd in your Windows search bar, right-click on: Command Prompt App, then left-click on: Run as administrator, and click on: Yes to confirm.

 

Then copy/paste/enter the following command:


wmic memorychip get devicelocator, manufacturer, partnumber, capacity, speed, memorytype, formfactor

 

You should see something like this -using my PC as an example:

Likely only your "DIMM1" shows a 16GB RAM stick, or maybe 2 x 8GB RAM -let me know.  If it shows only one 16GB RAM stick, order an identical RAM stick via Amazon, Newegg, eBay, etc.  HP computers generally run best having identical RAM (brand, model, capacity) installed.

 

Next, your desktop likely has no discrete graphics card installed.  If you are not interested in any kind of gaming, then you are set.  However, if you are interested in significantly improving your graphics performance without breaking the bank, so to speak, your desktop's 310-watt power supply will support a low-power GTX 1650 GPU, specifically this ZOTAC GeForce 1650 OC 4GB example: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0881YZJ45?tag=soundhealthdoctor-20&th=1.

 

Hope this was helpful.

 

Kind Regards,

Well that was cool command ..  correct Dimm1   w/part number., Mfg, Micron...Speed 3200 .... That slices the cost to a fraction of 2-32GBs ...I'll call that a "No Brainer"  the way you laid it out simplified it...the rest can wait... Thanks again and have a Great Day

I Appreciate your time explaining

my system has 2 16GB memory chips installed for a total of 32GB.  I would like to upgrade to 48GB by replacing one of the 16GB sticks with a 32GB stick.  Will this cause any problems?

HP Recommended

@adamscheer,

 

It will work, but you will lose your "dual-channel" RAM mode.  In order for dual-channel RAM mode to work, both RAM sticks must be of the same size, speed, latency, and model number.  And it is strongly recommended that both RAM sticks are identical in brand, make, and manufacturer too.

 

Here's a link explaining that: Dual Channel RAM: What It Is and How You Can Enable It? - Troubleshooting Central.

 

Hope this was helpful.

 

Kind Regards,
