Upgrading HP Pavilion 590-p0042nv Desktop PC

Pavilion 590-p0042nv
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello community !

 

I have a HP Pavilion 590-p0042nv Desktop PC and I want to upgrade its RAM.

It came with 8GB DDR4-2666 which is not enough for me.

Which gaming RAM do you recommend that compatible with my PC? (at least 16GB)

 

Thank you all ! 🙂

Hello @Faraz_ 

 

If you wish to only add to the existing ram, you need to match the timings of the original ram to the new stick. Otherwise you might have compatibility issues of one type of another.

Use the tool from CPUz to check the timings...

Or many of us recommend Crucial memory because they guarantee theirs to work.

Here is the link to what they recommend. If you can find one of those model numbers in your country, I would go with that.

That would be fine too. Just make sure its no faster that 2400/2666 Mhz. You would be wasting money otherwise and faster ram will get down clocked anyway automatically. Sometimes if its really fast, the  motherboard might not work with it at all and strange things have been known to happen. Just a heads up.
