Welcome back for part two of our "Upgrading Your Mass Market System" series. Here we finish the upgrade of a mass market computer, in this case a Hewlett Packard. After reading this article, you'll be able to make your own system better, stronger and faster. Let's jump right in! If you haven't checked out part one of this series, you probably should. It can be found here.
I will just pick up right where I left off last time, which of course was right after we installed the new CPU and the accompanying heatsink/fan combination.
Time to get out those new memory stick(s). If you decided to get a dual channel kit (in most cases) you're going to want to use the first and third slots as shown below (from left to right). Otherwise just put your memory in the first slot. Push the latches on the end of the slot open and line up your memory stick. Make sure you have the notch in the stick lined up with the notch in the slot and then push it firmly in. This is probably the scariest part because a lot of the time you can hear the faint grinding of the memory as it goes in. Once it's in all the way make sure the latches fully lock the memory in place on both ends.
Unfortunately, I didn't take exact measurements of the space inside the case and after putting the drive cage back in place I found that the third slot was just a tad too far over.
That means that I'll have to use slots 1 and 2 instead of 1 and 3 which means that I won't be able to take advantage of this motherboard's dual channel capabilities. Oh well, live and learn.
