Hey, i recently upgraded from 16 gb to 32 gb ram. my ram speed before upgrading was 3200 and when i upgraded to 32 gb it went down to 2400 mz. i tried going into bios to find the advanced option to try and change it, but there were no such option to change the speed.

 

Important to note that i mixed the 16 gb ram with the ones already in the desktop. i now have 32 gb with 2400 mz, but i want 32, gb with 3200. i checked and the old and the new one are both 3200, but still runs on 2400 and there is no way to change it. help please

Hi

 

You have an Intel CPU. HP locks the BIOS for overclocking RAM or the CPU.

 

The new RAM is not going to run at 3200 without XMP options in the BIOS. 

 

You would probably have to buy HP RAM if you want 3200 on all RAM.

 

You could check this site for HP memory https://parts.hp.com/hppartsIGSO/Default.aspx?from=ERP&mscssid=&cc=US&lang=EN&jumpid=  You will have to get the memory part number from the existing HP memory installed in your MB.
