You can NOT clock the RAM at speeds your processor will not support, and without specific model information of your PC, I can not see what speeds it will allow.

 

So please follow these instructions:  Finding Your HP Product Model Number | HP® Customer Support

 

We can proceed once you provide the information.

Thanks

Thanks for the information.

 

Here's some specifications on your PC:  http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c02625338

 

The information on memory is under Memory Upgrade Information.

 

You MIGHT be able to overclock the memory over 1333 but that is risky and any significant overclocking requires increasing the voltage to the memory slots and will significantly increase the heat inside the case.

 

Good Luck

Regarding changing memory timings and voltages, I do recall that with some motherboards, the supplier provides an app that will allow you to do that, most notably ASUS and Gigabyte -- but HP uses custom-built boards and they don't supply those apps.

 

I have done overclocking for more years than I care to mention, but always with commercial boards that were well-supported.

 

Personally, I would advise against overclocking an HP PC as the motherboards are not designed for that.

I know what you mean but I have another qustion I have an Apu in my mother board will increasing the speed of the ram give me more fps that all I wanted that why I bought the most expensive one if not I will return it and get a cheaper one

Most likely NO. 

 

While the FPS can be reduced if the game load exceeds the processor's ability to keep up, the other way around does not do anything -- as the FPS is governed by the "weakest link" rule: whatever is the slowest in the chain of hardware or software will limit the real-time performance of the game.

 

The only thing that will greatly increase the FPS is a faster video chipset with faster dedicated VRAM -- and that is something you will not be able to change in a laptop.

 

Good Luck
