    Upgrades & Warranty


    Hello,

    I have a new Acer mini desktop which I use as an HTPC running Win 8.
    I just bought it a week ago and I still haven't registered it for mafucaturer's warranty coverage because I have to wait until the store warranty is over (otherwise they won't accept the item for return or exchange if it is registered to Manufacturer).
    Anyways, it has 4 RAM slots (16GB max RAM) and only 2 so far are used (4+4GBs). If I added 2 more RAM cards to it (upgrade RAM myself), would it void the manufacturers 1 year warranty?

    Thanks.

    Hello fourthofjuly,

    No. Not unless you just install the RAM improperly and fry your motherboard.
