TG01-1070m

So I'm planning to upgrade my memory. Would this motherboard support 3600mhz cl16 32gb memory kit? (2x16GB) or would I have to refund my memory and use 3200mhz?

@OopsieNoob,

 

Welcome to our HP User Forum!

 

You raised a very good question.

 

After searching through more than 3,100 HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop TG01-1xxx User benchmarks as found here: https://www.userbenchmark.com/System/HP-Pavilion-Gaming-Desktop-TG01-1xxx/195603, almost all TG01-1xxx desktops are running various RAM at 3200 MHz or less.

 

Among the relatively few rigs that had fitted 2 x 16GB RAM which actually run at 3200 MHz are these:

 

Samsung M378A2G43AB3-CWE 2x16GB
Hynix HMAA2GU6CJR8N-XN 2x16GB
Micron 16ATF2G64AZ-3G2E1 2x16GB
TEAMGROUP-UD4-3200 2x16GB

 

I found just two (2) remarkable exceptions:

 

1.) Hynix HMA81GU6DJR8N-XN 2x8GB, clocked at 3600 MHzhttps://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/50172687.

 

2.) Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3600 C18 2x16GB, clocked at 3534 MHzhttps://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/53633504.

 

Don't know how these Users were able to do this, but it is apparently possible to run certain RAM at RAM speeds greater than 3200 MHz, but as stated, these were indeed rare exceptions.

 

I would play it safe and consider picking one of the four 2 x16GB RAM models I identified running at 3200 MHz, which is plenty fast anyway.

 

Hope this was helpful.

 

Kind Regards,

so how they made it 3600mhz is by overclocking I assume?

HP Recommended

@OopsieNoob,

 

Yes, that is correct: these two -only two- TG01-1xxx Users utilized some kind of OC software/XMP manipulation.

 

But not the overall best performing 'top dogs' though, whose RAM scores to be honest sucked left to be desired:

Hello, I upgraded my RAM but it's only running at 2133mhz. (purchased at 3600mhz) I thought the motherboard would limit it at 3200mhz, but it didn't. Anyone has solutions to this?

@OopsieNoob,

 

What RAM (brand and model/part number) did you install, what processor and what BIOS version do you have?

 

Kind Regards,

HP Recommended

RAM is G.Skill Ripjaws CL-16-19-19-39, 1.35V and 3600mhz. 28800 MB/s max transfer rate.

processor is a Ryzen 4 5600g, and I do not know my BIOS version.

HP Recommended

using ryzen master, I was able to get it to 3200mhz. But not the 3600mhz that I paid for 😞

@OopsieNoob,

 

Firstly, I assume you meant you got an AMD Ryzen 5 5600G.  Secondly, according to AMD Ryzen™ 5 5600G | AMD, 3200 MHz RAM speed is the max RAM speed of this processor:

 

NonSequitur777_0-1668826354251.png

 

The 3200 MHz RAM may not be the RAM speed (3600 MHz) you paid for, but 3200 MHz is the 'official' processor RAM speed limit for installed RAM.  However, as shown, there were two exceptions to this 'rule', but keep in mind that HP computers are finnicky when it comes to RAM and especially achieving max RAM speeds.

 

In my opinion, you did well: 3200 MHz RAM speed is not bad at all, and you can transfer your G.SKILL Ripjaws 3600 MHz RAM sticks to a future, faster PC.

 

Kind Regards,

 it is the 4600G, but 5600G has similar specs (and most important one in this convo). is there a way to manipulate the BIOS to enable XMP? I don't think using Ryzen Master is the "official" way for setting my RAM to its maximum potential.

Edit: My BIOS does not have the "advanced" tab. It only has basic things.
