Hello i got these HMT42GR7AFR4C-PB (SK Hynix 1x 16gb drr3 1600 rdimm pc3.12800r dual rank x4 module) laying around and im wondering if i should upgrade my motherboard from v1 to a v2 but would these ram work in that case?
would it be worth it?

Hi @Talkinggame 

 

HP Specs show DDR3 1333 ECC unbuffered support.

 

Try the DDR3 1600 ECC memory. 

 

The DDR3 1600 memory will install in the memory slot but the PC may not POST.

Hello BIll!

I have a z600 with version 1 motherboard. and you're right they come with a memory error becuase they're too big sticks (supports max 8gb) and its registerd memory.
my question is if i change my motherboard to the V2 Board will these sticks of ram fit.

Hi @Talkinggame 

 

Do you have any information on this part number?

 

Impossible to verify RAM compatibility without reviewing the MB specs.

 

Check this Forum Link for Z600 V2 MBs.
