Hello @Chιpshot 

 

Your manual Page 2 says 32GB of total memory at 2666Mhz. You cannot go above that as HPs have a locked non overclockable bios. http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c06219881

 

If you install another 8GB stick with the current one, you must match all the timings and voltage exactly or you could run into issues. Even then, sometimes one MFGs ram might not play well with the HP stick. HPs can be particular.

The only way to know what your existing timings are, is to run a tool like CPUz.

So far, Ive had users report problems with Kingston and Corsair ram not cooperating well with an Omen. But I have not seen issues with Crucial's ram. So I have been only recommending them as they have a 100% guarantee. You can choose to add to the existing stick, but its a better chance of no issues if you buy a whole new matched pair. Its up to you.

Let me know if you have other questions.
