HP Envy 6 -1010us RAM

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello again OCN,

So recently I purchased a clearance hp envy 6 1010us from staples for ridiculously cheap, and it seems to be running a but slow. I already put a 64g SSD into it but I checked CPU-Z and the RAM is only single channel. Does anyone happen to know if thats a limitation of the MOBO/CPU? or is HP just really cheap when it comes to RAM? Also on a side note does anyone know if it's possible to overclock the A6? I tried k10stat but it said it didn't recognize the CPU frown.gif

Another question I had is whether or not it would be possible to just scrap the A6 chip altogether and upgrade to an A8 or something. I did some googlefu and couldn't find a definitve answer, but most people were warning that the BIOS might not recognize that chip, or that it would run underclocked. Has anyone had any experience upgrading the A6 envys? Although i think this is a staples only model, they are probably all using a similar MOBO/BIOS.

Will update later with a link to the product (can't load the page on this comp for some reason)

Thank you very much in advance!!

The "sleekbook" that you bought (not envy) does support dual channel, but right now your notebook only has 1x4gb installed. You need to install another 4gb of the same memory in order to get it to run in dual channel.

The apu can only be swapped out with two other APUs at the moment. The a8-4555 or the a10-4655. The problem with these chips are that they're very difficult to find. The reason you can't just drop any mobile trinity APU is because of the cooling system (or lack there of) on the sleekbook and the TDP difference between normal mobile trinity APUs and you Ultra low power APU.

The reason you can't use K10stat is because these new APUs use different architecture from the Llano APUs from last generation. The new APUs use "piledriver" cores, which are tweaked bulldozer cores. The past generation APUs used stars cores which were based off Phenom.

Upgrade the memory and be happy for the time being really. The ULP processors aren't really meant for speed, but instead battery life and efficiency. If you can get your hands on the a10-4655 (which is the one everyone is looking for) then things will get interesting.
