If you are going to keep the existing memory and add to the other two slots, I would match the timings of the first two.

 

You can use a utility like Speccy to find the actual timings installed.

Thanks for your time but my original message hasnt been answered, Im not keeping existing memory I Want to know if I can use faster modules with better timings and will these timings work automatically from chip to motherboard or do they need manually inputting and how do i even lopcate timing settings on these bios.

Apologies for misunderstanding.

 

You could replace the ram with 2400mhz sticks and the system will simply down clock the speed back to the CPU's native supported speed of 2133.

 

HP's use a fixed bios. You cant overclock the timings.  But there wouldn't be any advantage to upgrading one step up in ram speed anyway. You wont physically see a difference except in a benchmark imho.

No gurantees as to how it will handle it.  It wont upclock. I would stay with the recommended.
