Can I install higher frequency ram than what my motherboard supports

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Guys please help me out
I have a laptop HP 14-am519tu.. online websites shows that it supports DDR4 RAM upto 2333 mhz.
I have bought 2666 mhz ram online https://www.amazon.in/dp/B08C56KXQJ/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_fabc_1TD433YK8STGF54HGMJP

 

As far as I have searched online, it says 2666mhz will work in 2333mhz motherboard. Will it really work guys..?? I am buying 2 sticks of 8gb to have 16gb ram in my laptop.


Will I face any problem if I use 2666 mhz ram in 2333mhz motherboard..??

Hi:

 

The DDR4-2666 MHz memory will work just fine in your notebook.

 

It will automatically bridge to 2133 MHz, which is the fastest speed your notebook's processor can run the memory at.

 

This would be the correct chip for your notebook though...

The above chip is the 8 GB equivalent of the 4 GB chip listed for your model notebook on the Crucial website...

Hi @Paul,

Thank you so much for taking out time and replying to me.

I am new to all this upgrade things and want to learn it along the way so decided to do it myself this time. 

Paul can you please tell me the difference between the 8GB ram posted by you and the 8GB ram posted by me ? It will be really helpful for me Paul.

You're very welcome.

 

I do not see the part number you posted listed as compatible for your notebook's model series.

You don't see the one I posted either, but you do see this 4 GB one...

 

Crucial 4GB DDR4-2666 SODIMM | CT4G4SFS8266 | Crucial IN

 

The 8 GB chip I posted has the same specs as the 4 GB one listed in the report, but it is 8 GB instead of 4.

 

I'm not saying the one you posted won't work, but I would go with the safer choice.

 

The 8 GB DDR4-2400 memory chip listed in the report for some reason is a lot more expensive than the 8 GB DDR4-2666 chip.

 

That is why I looked to see if I could find the 8 GB memory chip that was the same as the 4 GB chip listed in the report...just having 8 GB instead.

 

Hope this helps.
