8G's Dominator for HP Pavilion Elite?


Sullen

Recommended Posts

Hi! I'm new here and I have a rookie question, hehe! I have a new HP Pavilion Elite m9400t that comes with an Asus IPIBL-LB motherboard and Intel G33 Express chipset with 4G's of RAM. I didn't order it with the full 8G's you can put on it because I was planning to put Corsair's later. I was looking around and see the various models available and the Dominator's caught my attention but don't know if I can put all four cards due to the clearance of the slots and the cards heatsinks + the fan...Have somebody tried this before in a similar PC? Thank You!

I am sorry but that system will not allow you to set the memory Voltage and would not be compatible with our Dominator modules. However If that system will support DDR800 and it has 2" of clearance on the memory slots I would suggest Twin2x4096-6400C5DHX.

Thanks! here's a picture of the MOBO, it will be possible putting all four XMS2 DHX cards on it?

 

And what would be the best buy?

 

Two TWIN2X4096-6400C5DHX

 

One Q2X8G6400C4DHX

My system supports up to four 2GB DDR2 PC2-6400 800MHz dual channel SDRAM cards, that's all I know. Thanks for taking your time to answer my questions, sorry for being such a newbie...
No need for sorry man, we were all newbies at some point. In fact, back when RAM GUY was a newbie he got busted for trying to OC ENIAC: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ENIAC

 

The issue with your system and any OCing type RAM is that your system will not allow you to manually set system voltages like you can with Enthusiast MOBOs. This is because Dell, HP, etc do not want you doing any OCing. Our Dominator and other types of RAM that run faster than stock/OEM type RAM require more voltage and extra BIOS settings to do so. Therefore, you have to use RAM that runs at those stock/OEM parameters, aka JEDEC compliant settings.
