Hi,

 

First of all I recommend you to buy a hardware from newegg coz everyday they have good prices, quality and variety , but it up to you

 

your motherborad specifications will accept the following memory upgrade:

 

  • Dual channel memory architecture
  • Four DDR3 DIMMs (240-pin) sockets
     
  • PC3-8500 (DDR3-1066)
  • PC3-10600 (DDR3-1333)
  • Non-ECC memory only, unbuffered
  • Supports 1GB, 2GB, and 4GB DDR3 DIMMs
  • Supports up to 16 GB on 64-bit systems

think your choice is the cheapest without shipping and sales tax

 

by the way... you can go up to 16G if you are using 64bit OS

Hi,

 

Go to a memory manufacturer's web site and try their memory tool.  The memory manufacturers typically recommend buying dimms in pairs and motherboard manufacturers recommend dimms with the same CAS timings.  You can downlaod CPU-Z (it's a freebie) and verify your memory type and CAS timings.

Hi Big Dave

I have questions here.

Is it important to upgrade the memory with the same CAS number, for example I checked mine showed me CAS 7, what if I put CAS 9??

 

http://www2.0zz0.com/2011/06/02/02/713021244.jpg

 

You mentioned to check with the manufacture and mobo recommendation, most hp mobo does not specify the CAS requriements? so what should I do in this case.

 

PS . I have noticed the manufacture specify like this 7-7-7-20, 8-8-8-24, how you translate that from the CPUID.

I tried newegg memory tool finder they show my plenty of memory with CAS 9 compatible with my HP p6230f

The manufacture memo tool does not recognize my model number

Thanks in advance

Re: Memory Upgrade for p6710f.

Hi AOS,

 

Keep the CAS timings for your new dimms the same as your existing memory dimms and avoid the possibility of compatibility issues.  ASUS is one manufacturer where I have seen a recommendation to keep the CAS timings the same for all memory dimms.

 

Of course if you replace all of the memory dimms with dimms using the same CAS timings then you would also avoid compatibility issues.

 

When I increased the memory in my e9280t system, I purchased dimms with the same CAS timings.

 

HP certifies PCs with certain memory dimms.  If you start mixing dimms then you run into the possibilities of incompatibility between memory dimms.  If you look around the forum you'll find a number of posts where people had memory upgrade issues.
