HP OMEN 17-an054na Ram Upgrade 2400 vs 2666 vs 3200

Hi

 

I have a HP OMEN 17-an054na (specs in link below) and want to upgrade the ram from 16gb to 32gb (16gb x 2). Does anyone know what the maximum RAM speed it will recognize/and whether there would be much difference between 2400MHz, 2666MHz and 3200MHz RAM?

https://support.hp.com/gb-en/document/c05574525

 

Also any preferences on what brand is best. Crucial, Corsair Vengeance, Kingston Hyper X?

 

Thanks

The i7-7700HQ is limited to running at max DDR4-2400.

You are better of just getting DDR4-2400 RAM, since the laptop motherboard will just drop the higher frequency RAM down to DDR4-2400.

Even if you buy DDR4-4000 or something.

That is, unless the laptop supports XMP or something -- though, highly doubt it.

 

That said, if the DDR4-2666 or DDR4-3000 kit is cheaper than the DDR4-2400 kit you are looking at, you could get it.

Again, it will just run at DDR4-2400.

 

Brand is user preference, nothing wrong with any of the big name RAM brands.

Most / all of them carry a *limited* lifetime warranty on RAM.

The Crucial kit is pretty cheap, but the memory timings / latency is CL17 .... pretty loose.

Overpaying the for the Corsair kit a bit there...

 

Out of the three, the Kingston would the be better than DDR4-2400 and CL14.

 

Or.....

G.Skill RipJaws 32GB (16GB X 2) DDR4-2400 CL16 for ~103
