here my old hp from 2013 unfortunately Hp removed the product page
from the series, only a few models still referenced here (hp seems to be ahead of its ten-year policy)
it seems that the motherboard page is only here 🤔

Do the following:
Non-ECC memory only, no cache
1 GB, 2 GB, 4 GB and 8 GB DIMMs
supported On 32-bit systems, up to 4 GB is supported
NOTE: 32-bit systems cannot address 4.0 GB of memory.
Up to 32 GB on 64-bit systems
Intel® Core™ i7-3770
hdd 1 To SATA 6Gb/s
amd radeon 7950
ram 4 Go
the first modification was to add the memory modules of my old hp, but different
so 3 modules :
Samsung 2GB DDR3-1333MHz PC3-10600
the computer worked well so with 10gb clamped to 1333mhz
updated to the arrival of windows 10 free
no worries, except for the audio driver
next, replacing the amd 7950 3gb graphics card (I had already looked, and the first time it was over $900 for the card alone!!)
, by an nvidia gtx 1070 8gb
- Form Factor: ATX (full height) PCB with ATX dual slot bracket
- Dimensions: 11.2 cm x 26.7 cm (4.4 x 10.5 in)
- Rear I/O connectors: Dual Link DVI-D + HDMI + 3 DisplayPort
sometimes it gets a little hotter (the case is quite small, not much space for the graphics card, not much better with the original one though)
I'm going to a quick passage, because I hadn't been able to make photos videos..
then therefore, adding a crucial SSD mx500 500 GB sata (then replaced by that of 1 to, Christmas present)
slightly less efficient than the wd blue disc..
but the price was way more in my budget with a special offer at that time
fairly easy replacement, clone of the original hdd with the software provided by Acronis, no problem!
as we say at home day and night, speed of execution, startup, nothing to do with the hdd
Even if you don't buy the most efficient SSD, I strongly recommend compared to a 7200rpm or 5400rpm hdd
The time has come to add memory , I skip the details of the cause , too long !
I therefore went to the simplest, use that is often recommended here, crucial scan!
but he did not offer me the same reference .. ddr3l / ddr3 1.35/ 1.5v
choice being made, I chose an 8gb module (budget problem, mainly)
If it does not work with the original 4 gb , we will see later if it works alone , to buy the same one !
And how great this computer, motherboard sound...
I therefore install the 8gb module alone, to check!
no problem the computer, restart
So I place the 4 gb module, but with difficulty, because of the graphics card, which is a bit annoying..
But failure, no beep, the computer starts but seems blocked!
I remove it, but I do the test with a 2 gb module in case, although it is more different, no problem, it restarts
verification 10 gb
I therefore replace the 4 gb, which I may not have plugged in very well
it restarts, and we now have 14 gb
so , I replace another 2 gb, no problem, now 16 gb
So I was quite surprised, because we often have problems here, just with a single different model.
certainly, the speed is reduced, but it is enough for the moment to have the 16 gb
as far as possible, I still plan to buy the same 8gb module later
note, no bios update has been made !!
