    I think people were referring to the fact it is one ram stick (ie you have 1 x 8gb stick) therefore your machine is running single channel. by adding a second ram stick the machine will then use dual channel which gives slightly better performance.

    Mine came with 1 x 16gb stick. I swapped it out with 2x 8gb when I added a 2tb ssd in place of the HDD. I was lucky enough to have 2x 8gb sticks spare as another 16gb stick would be expensive and I do not need 32gb at the moment.

    thanks, do you know a brand compatible with the one already inside.
    or do you recommend to sell the one inside and buy 2 x 8 gb.
    what is the maximum our HP can handle 2666 or above ?

    I just used 2x 2666 sticks pulled from a dell laptop. I have swapped ram around a few machines lately and not had any compatibility issues, just make sure you buy a reputable brand (Corsair, crucial, Kingston, Samsung or Hynix)
    And you probably won’t notice the difference moving from 1x16gb memory stick to 2x8 but I have terrible pc ocd so I had to do it.

    Here is the part breakdown for the 16GB on the Micron website https://www.micron.com/parts/modules/ddr4-sdram/mta16atf2g64hz-2g6

    The 16GB ram is CL19, so no point paying extra for CL16 stuff. Crucial list compatible CL19: http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/hp-omen-15-(models-15-dc0000---dc0999)/CT12477014. Or you can just switch out the single 16GB and go with 2x8GB @ 16CL http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/hp-omen-15-(models-15-dc0000---dc0999)/CT12477027

    I don't know how much difference there is from CL19 to CL16, others will be able to better advise whether 32GB @ CL19 is better/worse than 16GB @ CL16.

    What upgrades in the NVME drive has anyone done? Do list the ssd part number of the product you added if so.
