Hello, I have an HP omen obelisk and have upgraded it to a 1080ti and was going to upgrade the ram as well.  I am curious if this motherboard supports 3200mhz ram

Welcome to the HP Support Community  @Dylan77 

 

Sorry but NO it does not support 3200MHz.

 

And your CPU only supports DDR4-2666.

HP Motherboards dont have XMP (Xtreme memory profiles) compatibility....so you will only get the maximum speed from the processor...try investing in quantity of RAM...and not speed!

with intel CPU's there is not much of difference in performance anyway!
