XMP

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Should I activate xmp with a Lincs motherboard? I have a gaming pavilion( i7-9700, 1660ti, 16gb ram)? It was a i5-9400, 1660ti, 8gb ram when I bought it first.

In my BIOS I guess.

HP's bios is not offering any XMP profiles option, so activating XMP is a lot more complicated than normal motherboards. You would need Intel XTU and a lot of patience.

HP turned off XMP on their Omen gaming desktops that they advertise as 'completely upgradeable'

 

You can't update your RAM or it runs very slow. Even the $$$ Memory they sell you is running slower than it's spec at 22 CAS. It's absolute garbage. I would strongly recommend against buying a HP/Omen Desktop if you have any plans at updating it... and it's very rare to not upgrade a desktop at some point. At least until they fix this terrible issue they created and any associated problems I don't yet know about.
