RAM upgrade for Pavilion g6-2006sq

Hello,

 

I recently bought a Pavilion g6-2006sq and i want to upgade the RAM.

I want to know what type of ram can i use . What is the maximum size  and what speed.

I want to install 4gb kingston value ram 204 pin 1333mhz part  product number KVR1333D3S9/4G  and want to know if it's compatible  

Also i was thinking about KHX1600C9S3P1K2/8G and wanted to know if they are worth it when comparing the performance of the instaled memory and KVR1333D3S9/4G versus KHX1600C9S3P1K2/8G

 

Thank you !

Hi:

 

Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook.

 

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c03233548.pdf

 

Supported memory info can be found in chapter 1 on page 1.

 

Max RAM is 2 x 4 GB of PC3-1333 (PC3-10600).  You can install PC3-12800, but as you see from the manual it will only run at 1333 MHz as that is the max speed of any of the processors installed.

 

A single 8 GB chip will not work, let alone two.

Thank you for pointing me to the supported ram types .

So i will buy the kingston 4gb ddr3 133mhz dim since there's no 1600mhz support and ( as far as i know ) dual chanel in real life situations hold no real advantage .

 

Thanks again !

RAM upgrade for Pavilion g6-2006sq

Hello again,

 

I upgraded my processor to a intel i3 2350m

 

I also ran SysoftSandra and it tells me that maximum RAM supported now is 32 GB. Is this accurate ?

Can i exceed the 8gb limit ?

 

Thank you !

ALex
