Hi:

 

The Crucial memory report for your notebook indicates that it will support 2 x 32 GB of memory.

 

HP - Compaq Pavilion Gaming 15-dk10000 (8VD49AV) | Memory RAM & SSD Upgrades | Crucial.com

 

However, chapter 1 of the service manual indicates the notebook will only support 2 x 16 GB of memory.

 

HP Pavilion Gaming Laptop 15-dk1056wm (2Y3S5UA) - Setup and User Guides | HP® Support

 

You can try the 64 GB kit, but no one will be able to tell you if it is 100% guaranteed to work or not.

 

You can also run this Windows command to see how much memory it reports your notebook can support:

 

1. In the search box, search for cmd and click Run as administrator.

 

This will open the command prompt.

 

2. Once command prompt is opened, type wmic memphysical get maxcapacityEx and hit enter.

 

There, it will show the maximum RAM capacity your PC's motherboard can support.

 

The capacity is shown as Kilobytes, so you have to convert it to Gigabytes by dividing the number provided in the report by 1,048,576.

 

For the NVMe SSD, what I can tell you is that your notebook's M.2 SSD slot is only PCIe Gen 3.0.

 

While a PCIe Gen 4.0 SSD will work, it will only run at around 3,500 MBPS from a PCIe Gen 3.0 slot.
