HP Pavilion p7-1240 with MSI M
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Thinking about upgrading me ram memory from 10GB (1600 MHz)  to 8GB (1866 MHz).  Is 1866 MHaz supported by me motherboard, MSI MS-7778 (Jasmine), or is 1600 MHz the max.  I know 32GB is max.

 

I currently have (2) 4GB and (1 2GB 1600 MHz.  Would like to go to 1866 MHz 8, 12. or 16GB.  Would I be able to see speed increase?

 

Thanks

Hi John

 

Yes, you can install the faster RAM in your PC per HP specs at this HP Support site.

 

I have had great success, and HP approves, using Crucial Memory in HP PC's.

 

If you mix different memory speeds the system will run at the lowest speed.

 

So it is good to remove the slower RAM to get the best results.

 

I cant' answer the question on if you will notice any improvement. Your PC may score higher when running memory benchmarks. That would be the best way to know if the upgrade was cost effective.

Thanks, Grzwacz, for the quick reply.  I'll check Crucial memory,  1866 MHz.  Again, thanks.
