Three RAM sticks in HP Z440

HP Recommended
HP Z440 Workstation
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

A few months ago I bought a HP Z440 workstation to replace my slow Laptop. I upgraded the graphics card and put a PCIe wifi card in. Now I am looking at upgrading the RAM from 16GB to 24GB by purchasing a third 8GB stick. My current budget means that I am unable to purchase more than one more stick.

Would adding a third stick and increasing the RAM amount from 16GB to 24GB be worth it and will it work with my CPU and Motherboard?

@etienneunai,

Unhappily you did not consult the RAM configuration setup.  There are "good" and "best" setups.  Your setup is only "good".

Pg 10 Memory,  pg 14 Memory configuration setup,  and I am unsure if you put what you have in the correct slot pairs.  It is pairs ONLY above an 12 GB setup.

As far as needed, open Task Manager , Performance tab.  You can determine idle, and various load potentials.
