ReadyNAS RN312 + 8GB RAM = FAIL

My RN312 has worked flawlessly since the upgrade from the standard 2 GB RAM to 4 GB ditto. I would however like to run some memory intensive applications on the NAS, so an upgrade to 8GB would be nice. Turns out this is not as easy – might not even be possible.

I have tried both a Kingston KVR1333D3S9/8G, and a DDR3 1600 from my iMac – no luck. Guess the RN312 just does not support 8GB – too bad.

By the way, the 4GB SODIMM that does work is a Hynix HMT351S6BFR8C.

  1. Thanks for all the Netgear ReadyNAS 316 write ups. Very useful for a new 316 owner! Cheers for taking the time to out these articles together.

  2. Typo – thanks for the *312* (not 316) articles!
    I’ll try and add to the knowledge base with any 316-specific findings.

  3. The Readynas 312 has a Intel Atom D2700 CPU. The maximum supportes memory is 4Gb. Unfortunately it does not – as the successor genration does – support ECC Ram.
