HP Recommended
HP Notebook - 15-ac042tu
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi , I want to extend my RAM. My system shows maxium ram limit as 16 GB,  it has 2 solts.

MY question is can place a 8 GB ram in the second slot . so that i get total 12 GB,(4+ 😎

 

exsisting/Default ram detail : 4 gb ,DDR3 ,single chanel,1600 MHZ, 

 

RAM i want to place: 8 GB ,DDR3 DUAL CHANNEL 1600MHZ MODEL ID (M471B1G73QH0-YK0 PC3L- 12800S)

 

Please suggest if this combination works or i shall go with similar rams and make 8 gb (4+4) combination.

 

Thanku .

It will work but you may see better performance matching the memory, ie 8 gb modules instead of mixing 4 and 8. More is always better. I have a Zbook with 16 Gig and I can run a VM with HP webjet admin running and it does not even break a sweat.
