Maximum memory upgrade for HP Compaq Elite 8300 Microtower PC

HP Recommended
HP Compaq Elite 8300 MT
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hello,

 

I have an HP Compaq Elite 8300 Microtower PC (QV994AV) with 8Gb RAM.

 

What is the maximum this can take?

 

Some documents say 16Gb - See page 32

 

Some documents say 32Gb - See overview

 

Anyone got experience with this model or any insight in to which is correct - 16Gb or 32Gb?

 

Thanks

The overview does say

 

32G for DIMM

16G for SO-DIMM

 

But the manual only says 16Gb for DIMM (page 63: not 32)

Well, I finally bit the bullet and intalled the following: -

 

4 x 8Gb - G Skill F3-1600C11-8GIS modules giving a total of 32Gb memory.

 

After 4 weeks I have not experienced any issues whatsoever.
