Maximum memory in rp5430

My customer has an rp5430 (model returns L1500-7x) with 4GB of RAM. Will this box take more RAM if required - 6GB, 8GB?

Re: Maximum memory in rp5430

hi,

rp5430 supports up to 8GB of memory on 16 slots. thus to max out the slots and memory, 8 pairs of 512MB will be the most it takes.

for your case, use mstm to check how the current 4GB of RAM is distributed and find out the available slot before checking the pairs of RAM needed.

regards.
