    Bought a NAS, would this memory work in it?


    I broke down today and bought a turnkey NAS, it's an ASUSTOR 5104T, and it seems to have some awesome features, however, I would like to upgrade the RAM the minute I get it. I'm a bit of an idiot when it comes to RAM, would this work with it?

    G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Laptop Memory Model F3-1600C11S-8GRSL - Newegg.ca

    Asustor only list their ram as being compatible, but the prices are CRAZY expensive... for instance
    8GB DDR3 UDIMM RAM Module

    And should I get 1 8gb stick or 2x4gb sticks.. ? (any benefit)?
    Help Please

    Why do you feel it needs more Ram? They usually don't require much memory.

    I plan to use desktop virtualization on it.

    How many VMs can it run at the same time?

    No idea, I'm a noob to this stuff. But I gather from forums that virtualization will require the extra ram.

    You are better off using a server with a Xeon Dual or Quad Core CPU on the motherboard. NAS's are not made to take the place of a server.

Hello all. New member here. I have had an issue with my PC since I "upgraded" to windows 8.1 earlier this year that is driving me batty. Unfortunately, I upgraded the hardware (motherboard, CPU, and RAM) at the same time, so I can't rule out a hardware issue completely. The issue stuck around...
