Hp Pavillion Gaming Laptop Ram Expansion

HP Recommended
Pavillion Gaming ec0106ax

Product Name and Model - HP Pavillion Gaming ec0106ax

Briefing:  I bought this product fairly recently and found out that out of the 8GB RAM only 5.92GB is usable the other 2GB is reserved by the VEGA 8 and since the BIOS is locked I cannot change that amount. This leads to a decent amount of stutters whenever I'm playing a heavy game and it loads a new area even if it is installed on the SSD. So I want to expand my RAM.

 

Problem: Which RAM should I buy? I had a previous notebook HP Envy 15, the RAM from which doesn't fit the slot in the pavillion laptop. So Please recommend me a RAM (8gb) as I have no clue which is the best fit for this laptop.
