Upgrading RAM for hp pavilion 690-0024

hp pavilion 690-0024
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Does the motherboard support 2 x 16GB of DDR 288 PIN RAM? I read on Best Buy's website that the HP team said yes for this particular model of pc. However, the upgrade information for the motherboard was rather vauge on this subject. I'm guessnig it's saying it does with a 64 bit OS but I'm trying to get clarification. Also would what be a good recommendation on which brand to use?

 

Thanks in advance..

Upgrading RAM for hp pavilion 690-0024

Hello again @Staticj 

Ive still not recieved an answer to the other question about allocation. I probably never will.

As for how much ram can be installed, yes the specs are confusing.

 

In the Maintenance Manual HP states 4 or 8 GB UDIMMS can be used, up to 32 GB total for 64bit systems.

What they mean is, HP has tested and sells this series with up to 16 (2x8)GB total. But they are stating the motherboard could use up to 32 or 2x16 UDIMMs for a max of 32 GB total.

 

Yes I also see where an HP Rep has commented on the Best Buy comments.

 Crucial specifically sells 16 GB moduals for that model so I am confident the motherboard will handle it.

 

Know that AMD has been known to be more finicky about what ram it will accept than Intel is. Make sure what ever ram you buy, states it is AMD/RYZEN compatible to avoid possible issues.

I have had good luck recommending Crucial ram. They guarantee it to work or your money back. Here is the link if you want to take a look... https://www.crucial.com/usa/en/compatible-upgrade-for/HP---Compaq/pavilion-690-0024
