I want to put a 1333mhz 4GB stick onto the motherboard, but it says the support of G43 goes up to 1066mhz. I will be clocked onto 1066mhz which is fine but will it work?
I accidently bought a 1866mhz 4GB DDR3 before and had to send that one back, the machine started whining so the G43 was not able to clock that one down.
Will I encounter the same issue with a 1333mhz?
All help appreciated

From the following information, it supports 1333MHz and downgrades to 1066MHz but please note must be Synch DRAM PC3-10600 (1066/1333 MHz) Non-ECC

Here is a spec sheet on configuration. Using DDR3-1333, (PC3-10600). According to the list, you likely have 2 slots occupied with two 2 GB modules of DDR3-1333. . What are they? About that 4 GB. -- It does not allow 4 GB module.

Thank you for your reply sir, unfortunatly the product was already on it's way while I posted this message. I wanted to know if I could already inform my client it is possible or not to have it's RAM increased.
Tomorrow I will recieve my second and last try on increasing RAM on this machine, the options you have meant are not valid available in my country, only through weird unreliable shops and brands of which I refurse to let my client work with.
This is what I will try to plug and play

Thank you sir for your reply. I do wonder: why does this board not allow a 4GB module? There was a highly appreciated tech shop here in the Netherlands called 'Coolblue' that confirmed me a 4GB should work as well.
I of course am now encountered with a true HP specialist so I will take your word and inform my client I cannot make it possible for him to increase RAM and therefor have a new OS placed on his system.
I must clarify it's a real unfortune that I can only get HP's choice for RAM type through weird unreliable places of which I will never do business with. It's is a designed office machine, it should be easy to increase RAM I'd say.
