HP Omen 15 upgradeable RAM size

HP Recommended
HP Omen 15-Dc0051nr
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello! After I've research on the my HP Omen manual, I can see that I can upgrade RAM, SATA storage drives, and M.2 NVMe SSD. I'm wondering, can I able to exceed upgrade RAM, SATA storage drives, and M.2 NVMe SSD more than recommended upgrade size? like upgrade RAM to 64GB 2666mhz instead to 32GB 2666mhz, upgrade SATA storage drives to 4TB SSD instead 2TB SSD/HDD, and upgrade M.2 NVMe SSD to 2TB instead 1TB?

 

Current specs for my HP Omen 15-DC0051nr

CPU: Intel Core i7 8750H 2.20GHz

GPU: NVIDIA GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5

RAM: 16GB (2X8GB) DDR4-2666

Hard drive: 1TB

SSD: 256GB PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD

Thanks, 

Billy

The specs of your machine is

 

             https://support.hp.com/au-en/document/c06057200

 

Yes, you can upgrade RAM and STORAGE

 

1. RAM: It has 16 GB DDR4-2666 SDRAM (1 x 16 GB) now, you can simply add same 16GB existing RAM to slot 2. I belive it is from Samsung (similar to my Omen machine)

2. STORAGE: It has 1TB HDD now, you can add M.2 NVMe SSD drive to your machine using

                  https://www.samsung.com/au/memory-storage/970-evo-nvme-m2-ssd/MZ-V7E2T0BW/

                  https://www.crucial.com/products/ssd/crucial-p2-ssd

                  https://www.crucial.com/products/ssd/crucial-p5-ssd

             Or similar from reputable vendors.
                     One example (compatible drive, can use smaller/larger capacity)

                             https://www.crucial.com/ssd/p5/ct1000p5ssd8/ct18124168

 

  My machine has 256GB Samsung M.2 SSD  (you can use larger capacity) and 1TB HGST 7200RPM HDD.

So then is it upgrade higher than recommended? Like way overkill of 64GB RAM, 4TB SATA SSD, and 2TB M.2 NVMe SSD with Windows 10 Pro upgrade instead high performance of 32GB RAM, 2TB SATA SSD, and 1TB M.2 NVMe SSD with standard Windows 10 Home

  1. RAM: No, 64GB won't work. You can try at your own risk
  2. STORAGE: I don't believe 4TB would physically fit, 4TB 2.5" HDD drives are normally thicker (12.5mm). For NVMe drives you can use larger than 2TB, as long as they are singled sided otherwise again too thick
  3. WINDOWS: You can upgrade to Windows 10 Pro with your $ and Microsoft.

Regards.

For RAM: I did saw the newest HP Omen 15 able using 64GB RAM, so I don't know about the 2018 HP Omen 15 like my HP Omen 15 DC0051nr

For SSD: there is the 2.5 inch SSD (7mm) with 4tb which is from Seagate new Firecuda 120 SSD 4TB 2.5inch

For M.2 NVMe SSD: the 2TB is also from Seagate new Firecuda 520 (Gen 4) 2TB. But it's double side

You can find the information from this:
