    Can I upgrade to 8GB (4gb * 2) Ram?

    My Motherboard is - Gigabyte H55M-D2H,
    Processor - Intel Cor i3 (2.93Ghz)
    Using Windows 10 pro 64 bit.
    My current ram is 4GB ddr3 1333mhz (2gb * 2).
    Will my system support 8GB ddr3 1333mhz (4gb * 2) ram?

    1. Intel H55 Express Chipset
    Memory(Note 1) Due to Windows 32-bit operating system limitation, when more than 4 GB of physical memory is installed, the actual memory size displayed will be less than 4 GB.
    1. 2 x 1.5V DDR3 DIMM sockets supporting up to 8 GB of system memory (Note 1)
    2. Dual channel memory architecture
    3. Support for DDR3 2200+/1800/1600/1333/1066/800 MHz memory modules
    4. Support for non-ECC memory modules
    5. Support for Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) memory modules

    * To reach DDR3 2200 MHz and above, you are required to use with Intel Core i7/Core i5 CPU without HD Graphics and install a discrete graphics card.
    When using Intel Core i5/Core i3/ Pentium CPU with HD Graphics, the maximum memory speed supported is 1666 MHz
    * Go to GIGABYTE's website for the latest memory support list.

    GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1156 - GA-H55M-D2H (rev. 1.3)

    You have 64bit, so go ahead and enjoy the speed up and less "Not Responding":)

    In addition to Post #2, I'd suggest looking at Gigabyte's recommended memory list for the board. Unfortunately, they have only tested a few 4GB modules. Most of the correct type may work, especially if you're not looking to go above 1333 Hz.
