Memory upgrade for HP Compaq 6200 Pro MT PC

HP Recommended

Hi,

I have a HP Compaq 6200 Pro MT PC with a Core i5-2400 and 1x4GB memory installed. I'd like to upgrade it to 16GB for development purposes. I was thinking of getting 2x8GB. However, a quick look at the specs - http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/us/en/sm/WF06a/12454-12454-64287-321860-3328896-5037900.html?dnr=1 and data sheet - http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/pscmisc/vac/us/product_pdfs/HP_Compaq_6200_Pro_BPC_Data_Sheet.pdf shows that the maximum supported memory is 16GB. I'm wondering if this means I need to populate all 4 DIMM slots, i.e. 4x4GB rather than 2x8GB. If the motherboard supports 8GB DIMMs, shouldn't the max be 32GB?

Thanks.

Hi,

 

Based on the following specs, it supports 32Gb:

System Memory Support
 

The HP Compaq 6200 Elite Series supports the 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processor family. Based on a new PC micro-architecture, the processor is designed for a two-chip platform consisting of a processor and Platform Controller Hub (PCH). Unlike previous generations, the processor includes an integrated memory controller (IMC). The IMC supports DDR3 protocols with two independent, 64-bit wide channels each accessing one or two DIMMs.

  • Two channels of non-ECC unbuffered DDR3 memory with a maximum of two UDIMMs per channel
  • Single-channel and dual-channel memory organization modes
  • Data burst length of eight for all memory organization modes
  • DDR3 memory data transfer rates of 1066 MT/s (PC3-8500) and 1333 MT/s (PC3-10600)
  • 64-bit wide channels
  • DDR3 I/O voltage of 1.5V
  • Maximum memory bandwidth of 10.6 GB/s in single-channel mode or 21 GB/s in dual-channel mode assuming DDR3 1333 MT/s (PC3-10600)
  • The largest memory capacity possible is 32GB using four (4) 8GB DIMMs

Regards.

Weird. This contradicts the 2 links I posted. Also, just further down the link you posted, they only show up to a 16GB memory configuration. Lastly, the 32GB portion refers to the elite series while mines a pro series, wonder if that matters?

Hi:

 

32 GB will work in the 8200, so it may work in the 6200. See the post below and the screen shot to prove it.

 

However, There is a difference in chipsets between the 8200 and 6200. The 8200 has the Q67 and the 6200 has the Q65. I cannot find chipset memory support info anywhere.

 

http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Hardware/RAM-upgrade-questions-for-Elite-8200-i7-Desktop-SFF-am...

 

There is no such thing as a HP 6200 Elite business PC. It is the 6200 Pro. There in only an 8200 Elite.

 

So, either HP copied and pasted some of the memory specs from an 8200 Elite in to the 6200 Pro sheet, and the info may be incorrect, or they just made a typo on the name, and the info of 32 GB is correct.

 

If you look at the spec sheet for the 8200 elite, it only shows a max memory configuration of 4 x 4 GB.

 

Look at all the conflicting memory info on the 8200 on page 9. Says you can use 4 x 8 GB chips, says you can only configure 4 x 4 GB...

I just ordered 2 x 8 GB of this brand from New Egg for my 8200. If it works, I'll order another pair.
