Upgrading Ram

HP Recommended
pavilion gaming
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My model # is a  HP 580- 23w and I'm looking to up grade my Ram from 8GB (2-4GB sticks) to 16GB. My question is do I have to   buy 2- 8GB sticks and use as a pair or can I just buy 1 16GB stick of memory and us only 1 bay?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 HP Pavilion Power 580-023w Desktop PC Product Specifications

motherboard specifications, Odense2-K

 

 

  • Dual channel (one DIMM per channel) memory architecture
  • Two DDR4 UDIMM (288-pin) sockets
  • Supports PC4-19200 (DDR4-2400)
  • Supports 4 GB and 8 GB UDIMMs

as you can see it says 16gb
and only with 2 * 8gb
This is what is recommended, tested, validated by hp ..
in rare cases, more than what is mentioned can be installed
But 16gb is enough for many users

if not, you can check with the site, Welcome to Crucial USA 

 

but even if they offer something else it doesn't always mean it's ok, it does mention it

* Do not exceed the amount of memory recommended by the manufacturer.
