That motherboard has a maximum support of 64 GB so you should definitely be good adding a second stick of 16 GB.

So opened the case: MOBO has 4 RAM slots, with only one slot filled, which as far as the screenshot tells me is correct

and if i understand correctly the marked x16 means max 16gb right?

edit: im an idiot, looks like another 16gb stick isn't a problem

- Supports PC4-21300 (DDR4-2666)

- Supports 8 GB and 16 GB DDR4 UDIMMs

- Supports up to 64 GB (unbuffered) with 16 GB DIMMs on 64-bit computers.

A stick using those RAM part numbers isn't popping up very easily. Newegg has a stick with a slightly different part number but it's out of stock anyway.

Finding another identical stick may not be so easy.



Loking for a hyperx 2666mz stick would work

I too just checked around and HP seems to have used a low performing batch of RAM from Kingston. Getting an exact match will be very difficult and perhaps event too costly.

Next best thing is to check the Memory Qualified Vendors List but I don't see one for this board.  Thanks, HP. 

Match the RAM specifications as close as possible from Kingston and hope for the best.

You might have problem though if they aren't identical. It also may work fine. Won't know until you try.

Or get a dual channel kit of 2x8 or 2x16, depending on how much you want and your budget, and then sell that single 16GB stick.

Ya the latency is pretty high. That's HP for ya. Ok, but not great.

This might work but used. A 6 instead of 9 in the part number. Close, but how close really? $90

Single 16GB stick from Newegg, but no idea if it'll work together, and pretty expensive. $282

https://www.newegg.ca/hyperx-16gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820104748

New 16GB kit from Newegg with better latency, and reasonable pricing. $95

https://www.newegg.ca/hyperx-16gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820104860

New 32GB kit from Newegg with better latency and reasonable pricing. $150

I second this one.  It guarantees equality between the RAM sticks and you get the full 32 GB.  It also matches the motherboard defaults closely enough.

I really wish they published the memory QVL for this board to ensure full compatibility.  But Kingston is a large enough vendor that I'm pretty sure HP tested these chips.

Typically they aren't for pre-builts. That and cheaper cases tend to get cheap fans as well. They also like to hide that behind RGB, as if that makes them perform better lol.

It's got some CPU options listed, but nothin for RAM. Sticking with Kingston gives the best chance at compatibility though. Now there are kits that are quite a bit more expensive, that look closer to what kirby has now like the single 16GB stick for $282, which would likely mean an even higher likelihood of compatibility, but Kingston Hyper X in general should be fine. 

2x8 Newegg $152

https://www.newegg.ca/hyperx-16gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820104573

2x16 Newegg $374

https://www.newegg.ca/hyperx-32gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820104749

These are quite a bit more expensive though and odds of these working and not the earlier Hyper X models I posted are fairly unlikely.



Ill put a ticket in towards HP, will be fun to see if i can get any information out of em.
Thanks for helping me shop around btw!!

Edit : is getting 2 of https://www.alternate.nl/Corsair/16-GB-DDR4-3600-18-Kit-werkgeheugen/html/product/1546243? an option?

Ya let HP do some work.

Corsair Vengeance is pretty universal but again, no guarantee's. Board supports 2666MHz and that RAM is 3600 MHz, but no idea how high of an XMP profile it'll accept. If it does run, but won't accept the higher XMP, it'll just run stock at 2666MHz.

Saw someone asking about why their upgraded GSkill Flare 3200MHz RAM won't accept XMP on that same board, and it's probably because the board won't OC the RAM that high. Might go above 2666MHz a bit, might not.
