Re: Upgrade DS412+ RAM?

Just wanted to chime in to this post. I just installed 4GB in my Syno and so far I have not seen any of the same symptoms described in this thread. I have not tweaked anything and to be honest am not strong in Linux options so don't understand many of the tweaks suggested. First time boot was a bit long, I am assuming that the Synology does some sort of memory checking at startup so having more memory obviously would take longer to check. I did a test with Video Station and streamed movie to my phone, DLNA connected another to my TV, as well as another movie on my laptop. CPU stayed down around 25% and memory is at 23%. Much better than at 60% to 80% memory use that I am used to seeing.

Wish I could upgrade the processor as well, but we all know that means a new unit... Synology, trade-up program?? Since the overall design doesn't seem to change much over the generations, would be nice if even just offer a mobo upgrade kit...

Anyway, I just wanted to share the 4GB upgrade went over without a hitch. I do have both NICs in use and LACP Teamed on my ASUS router, that shouldn't make any difference. I am on the latest version and I have my MTU on the NIC team set to 9000.

Kingston 4GB - CT51264BF160BJ - It is low power; the original is not (1.35v vs. 1.5v). It's also CAS 11 not CAS 9, but I don't see a difference.

Happy NAS'ing!

Any updates as to how the 4GB is working?
