HP Omen 30L Desktop GT13-0255st
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I purchased a HP Omen 30L Desktop GT13-0255st with the following specs:

  • Intel® Core™ i9-10900K w/ RGB Liquid Cooling (3.7 GHz, up to 5.3 GHz, 20 MB cache, 10 cores)

  • NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 2080 Ti (11 GB GDDR6 dedicated)

  • HyperX® 8 GB DDR4-3200 XMP RGB SDRAM (1 x 8 GB)

  • BU RCTO OMN DoradoOC Z490 (Motherboard?)

I chose to buy the minimum RAM to save some money on HP's markup costs for RAM. Now I am looking for compatible RAM and cant seem to find the exact Motherboard model to check the specs. Are there recommendations for RAM that will work best? I am thinking of using 4 x 16 GB. Is this configuration capable of handing 128 GB RAM? Should I instead purchase 2 x 32 GB to allow for upgrading in the future?

@acttown , welcome to the forum.

 

You can use CPU-Z to find the brand and timings for the current memory:  https://download.cnet.com/CPU-Z/3000-2086_4-10050423.html

 

Here is the advertisement for the model on HP Store:  https://store.hp.com/us/en/ConfigureView?catalogId=10051&langId=-1&storeId=10151&urlLangId=&catEntry...

 

It appears that the maximum memory is 64 GB.  Also, it gives you the specifications for the memory.  I am not certain that you can use faster than the 3200 MHz memory.  You can look in the BIOS/UEFI to see if HP has provided other XMP Profiles that you can use.

I have the exact same issue, and I am actually about the return the computer, as HP are making it almost impossible to upgrade the ram on your own, tried 4 different kits and the HP OCC is not recognizing them and is not allowing to overclock to the desired 3200mhz.

There are no XMP profiles in the bios at all.

@hwsense,

 

I believe the XMP profiles are built into the BIOS/UEFI, but not accessible.  From what I have read in other threads, the way to overcome this is by using the same memory that came with the computer to upgrade.  This will retain the 3200 MHz.

Again, I have the same issue and computer, check out my thread for all the 30L users. There are no XMP profiles built, only JEDEC is acceptable. 

And yes only ram bought from HP on a $158 per 8gb is acceptable by HP OCC, which is absolutely ridiculous, when 8GB of the same memory on Amazon is $44.

Alternatively, you can get a whole new set of low PnP rams with low latency like CL15 and DDR4 2666mhz. 

 

Given that the Hyperx rams we have are running at 3200/2933mhz (motherboard restriction) with CL22  you will have improvement over the original ram. So buying the cheapest possible ram then upgrade with other brands totally might work

Yes that's definitely an option, although not ideal, it would have been so much easier to just add the XMP option in the Bios. 

BTW even the good 2666mhz memory is hard to find these days. 

HP Recommended

No only up to 16 gb. modules and 3200 Mhz speed. It is only upgradable up to 64 gb total all four Dimms occupied. You will have to enable xmp profile in the bios to get the full 3200 Mhz. It will probable only run at 2133 Mhz until you enable xmp.

There is no Xmp profile option in the Bios, all is done via software.
