Hi, I've just been given and HP Pro 3000 SFF desktop PC (WE568PA) and I need to get some memory for it. 

 

4 banks, max 2GB per bank, total max memory 8GB

 

Looking at the HP Support website I need DDR3-SDRAM non-EEC PC3-10600 DDR3-1333 MHz-compliant , 240 pin.

 

However is not as simple to find. Aquire does not have any in stock and their current lead time is 7+ working days.

 

BPTech does seem to have any, but that a bit of a grey area.

 

Google searches just coming back with Amazon, eBay and trade me.

How about http://www.impc.co.nz/products/im_2554389.html

 

I have bought a couple of things from ktech/impc before and they supplied quickly.

It's just "normal" DDR3 ram.  Any speed > 10600 is fine and there is plenty about.  These only go to 8Gb anyway so 2Gb modules are the way to go.  Surprised you are having trouble finding any?

I may have some, I got some from HP but they never worked in my machine for whatever reason, i gave up with the process.  I also tried some I got from PB Tech, same spec, still didn't work.   2GB modules.

 

Can check the specs when i get home and let you know. 

 

Never been used, just installed and then removed and put back in their cases.

I think the problem I've been having is searching for "DDR3 PC3-10600 2GB".

Nothing necessarily wrong with your keywords there, but yes you'll likely be overwhelmed by a great number of irrelevant search results.

 

 

DDR3-1333 is the same as PC3-10600

 

As long as you don't buy notebook memory (SO-DIMM) you'll be fine.

 

You are also looking for non-ECC as opposed to ECC and RDIMMs for workstations/server boards/chipsets.

 

Desktop memory is just DIMM sometimes also referred to by vendors as UDIMM.

Okay, I found what I was looking for on Aquire KVR13N9S6. But I have another Identical machine that would also need an upgrade. Let me know what you have got.

 

I have also found a datasheet from Kingston and all the specifications line up.

Some (not all) HP's are VERY fussy about the ram
Go to the Kingston website, they have a search tool that will give you an exact Kingston part number for matching RAM

May be you can help me find it on the Kingston web site as I could not find my machine on the memory search tool.

These machines don't seem to be overly fussy, I have a couple, they have various bits of RAM in them.  Provided it's DDR3, non-ECC, unbuffered stuff (which is the norm for desktop RAM anyway) and all the modules are 2Gb or less, it should work just fine.  HTH :)  The trick is finding 2Gb DDR3 modules at a cheap enough price to be worthwhile...

I finally found the recommend memory from Kingston after doing a Google site search on the the Kingston website. Only to find that the memory chips KTH9600B/2G has been discontinued. May be this explains why I was not able to find my machine using the Kingston memory search tool.

Hopefully the memory I have ordered (KVR13N9S6/2) is still going to work.

Okay the new memory modules I ordered don't work (likely I only open one box of the four). I seem that I missed understood one vital requirement and that's DIMMs needs to have 8 or 16 SDRAM chips as DIMMs with 4 SDRAM are not supported.

 

Historically I have never had such a problem with ordering RAM until now.

 

Hopefully I can return 3 of the 4 boxes.

ram compatibility is a well known issue with SOME hp's , has been for many many years.
Ive come across HP RAM compatibility issues many times. Unfortunately, its often a try it & see sort of thing

 

Luckily one of our suppliers lets us return RAM if it doesnt work.

Damn :( you can probably return the opened one as well.
