Is it possible to exceed the 32GB RAM suggestion on the HP Omen 17 (2XP11AV)?

HP Omen 17 2XP11AV
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, I'm looking to upgrade my RAM beyond the 16GB as I'm doing a lot of rendering in Adobe After Effects and Premiere Pro and it tends to hog my memory while I'm working in other apps. I see that HP suggests a max of 32GB, but from what I can tell, the Intel i7-8750H can handle up to 64GB RAM at 2666MHz. I can't find too much information on the motherboard which appears to be model 846A 68.21 or part number L11136-601.


Are there any reasons why the 32GB is suggested and not a 64GB setup? What am I missing and what would the potential repercussions be aside from not being able to POST? 


Thank you.

If you have the money to gamble on it, the worst that will happen is the PC won't boot.


I believe the notebook would only support 64 GB of memory would be if it had 4 memory slots and yours only has two.


For example, the higher end HP business class mobile workstations with that processor have 4 memory slots and in those, 64 GB would work.


The barometer I use for whether or not I want to gamble on memory working beyond the PC's manufacturer's specs is the Crucial memory report.


The report for your model indicates that 32 GB is the max.


In conclusion, I would say the odds are against you for 2 x 32 GB of memory working in your notebook.
