Are there more brand/models that may be compatible with DS918+?

Hi friends.

I've got a DS918+ arriving today and I would like to know if DDR3L 1600Mhz will work on it?

I got 8GB of Crucial DDR3L 1600 (PC3L-12800) CL11 SODIMM 204-Pin - CT102464BF160B in my DS716+ and I would like to know if it is OK to put it on the DS918+

Will it work being only 1600Mhz ? The DIMM that comes with the DS918+ is 1866MHz right?
And if it works is it better to have more memory but a little slower?

Excuse me being a newbie. I am trying to research and be informed I recently purchase the DS918+ and would like to upgrade the memory and get the M.2 drive if it is worth doing. I am trying to find the exact memory in the first post here up in Canada but no such luck. I found this similar memory below. Does anyone know if this is fine? And is it worth upgrading the memory and getting M.2.? Trying to future proof as best as possible and realize it is likely overkill for my needs (Plex, home net file sharing and storage) but I am still learning about NAS and who the features and uses it can provide. I appreciate any guidance.

Hey Canuckz,

You should find the ram on Newegg (dot) ca. Just search for CT2K8G3S186DM
Also on Amazon (dot) ca, but cheaper at Newegg.

I would skip the SSD cache for now unless you have a specific need. It just adds another layer of complexity and point of failure.
Good luck! :)

If you use the NAS in an office or living space, I think the SSD cache is worth it. Drives don't spin up as much and you can hear the difference.
The SSD don't need to be the fastest/latest. I went with dirt cheap Intel 600p.

Just bought a DS918+ and two sticks of Kingston HyperX HX318LS11IB/8 and it is running with 16GB of RAM perfectly.

Is it possible to just add 1 stick of 8GB to a 4GB NAS to go up to 12? Is there any significant performance penalty for doing so?


Thanks.

It is cheaper to install Kingston HX318LS11IB/8 that is DDR3-1866 and cost the same as Crucial CT102464BF160B that is DDR3-1600, but both has CL=11 instead of CL=13 of Crucial CT2C8G3S186DM/CT2K8G3S186DM/CT8G3S186DM and Synology D3NS1866L-4G.

Several people, besides me, installed Kingston HX318LS11IB/8 on 918+ and it works very well.

DS918+ with 16GB RAM, same as original poster. Works wonderful. This is the max for the processor in the DS918+, 8GB per slot.

Just a note: When reading the fine print of the setup document, it sounds like using memory not purchased from Synology can void the warranty. I hope that isn't the case.

I'm not that lucky :(

Got 2 sticks of Crucial 8GB Single DDR3/DDR3L 1866 MT/s (PC3-14900) SODIMM 204-Pin Memory For Mac - CT8G3S186DM from Amazon

DS918+ randomly reboots. Sometimes it won't reboot or restart.

Back to original 4Gb stock from synology

For me installation of CT8G3S186DM (8GB) additional stick did the job. My DS918+ works well for 2 days now with 12GB
