I want to buy 4x 16 GB sticks next month since I can afford it, but I worry that there might be an issue if I add too much memory to my PC.

My specs are on my profile.

This is a PC I never thought I would get so I'm being extra cautious by asking around, sorry if this is a very noob question.

Btw, to quell any questions, I do plan on upgrading this PC further. I am adding 64 GB to "future proof" it. And mostly because I use Adobe software lol

Mod Edit:

My Specs:

  • Operating System: Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2019 64-bit
  • Antivirus Software: Malwarebytes Premium + uBlock Origin
  • Firewall: Windows Firewall
  • Computer: HP Pavilion Power 580-199ng
  • CPU: i7-8700 6 cores 12 threads 4.3 GHz
  • Motherboard: HP Tampa 2
  • RAM: 2x 8 GB DDR4 @ 1200 MHz
  • Storage: SanDisk SD8SB8U 512 GB SSD + Western Digital WD10JPLX 1 TB HDD
  • Display: Dual Monitor 1080p144hz / 1080p75hz
  • Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
  • Soundcard: Realtek Onboard Sound Card
  • Power Supply: 300 W internal ATX E-STAR 6.0 Bronze power supply

Your motherboard supports a maximum 32GB of RAM. While installing 64GB won't "harm" your computer, it may simply fail to boot.
