@MAli1 

 

1Rx8 means it is a single-rank module and 2Rx8 means it is a dual-rank module. Compatibility is generally not an issue in most cases. But you should go through the motherboard manufacturer's guide of supported RAM modules just to make sure if they are compatible or not.

 

Regards.

Thank you very much. I've got HP Pavilion Notebook 17, A10 8700p so could you tell me, which one is usable for it?
