Upgrading HP Desktop

HP Recommended
HPE-410ru
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Good day! I have a HP HPE-410 desktop computer with an installed MSI 2A9C motherboard. I want to upgrade this computer (or rather, change the processor and memory). What is the maximum configuration I can get with this motherboard? Thanks in advance for your reply.diz_02.jpgdiz_01.jpgdiz_03.jpg

@evg_sla,

Lets discuss memory first:

That unit has 4 slots operating as dual channel. That means it uses 2 modules as a pair.

Crucial states 16GB is max, using 4x4GB. Mr Memory (UK) also states 4x4GB.

Mr Memory has an onboard tester to check what is in each of the 4 slots.

 

It took some time, but here it is:   Source document

Motherboard supports the following processor upgrades:
  • Intel Core i7-8xx (Lynnfield core)
  • Intel Core i5-7xx (Lynnfield core)
  • Intel Core i5-6xx (Clarkdale core)
  • Intel Core i3-5xx (Clarkdale core)
    note:
    Maximum processor core frequency <= 2.93GHz
