Why Does Crucial® Recommend a Higher Maximum Ram Limit for My System Than the System Manufacturer?

You may have noticed that when you check the maximum amount of supported memory for your system, that we recommend more than your system or motherboard manufacturer has listed on their technical specification. 

The good news is that this is not a mistake! On occasion you will find that due to system updates and technological advances, some hardware may be able to support more memory compared to when it was originally manufactured. At Crucial®, we ensure that the higher amount of RAM is rigorously tested and is backed by our compatibility guarantee. 

We recommend that you run our Crucial System Scanner, or use our Crucial Advisor Tool, so you can accurately check the amount of memory your system can support.
