What is the maximum memory for Omen by HP 17-cb0221ng?

Omen by HP 17-cb0221ng
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi - I have been trying to figure out the maximum memory capacity for my laptop, Omen by HP 17-cb0221ng.


I used several "memory selectors" and "memory configurators" from several brand name memory producers and they all agree the my laptop can handle 32 GB x2 chips for a total of 64 GB, but I run the Windows CMD


wmic memphysical get maxcapacity


And the command prompt returns the value:





So, doing a little math: 33554432KB / 1024 = 32768MB, 32768MB / 1024 = 32 GB 


Now I don't know what to believe so I'm coming to ask the gurus of the HP Forum for any help/thoughts/complaints...


Happy New Year,
