Acer Swift 3 SF314-54 Upgrade Help!

AlfazAlfaz Posts: 2Member New User
So i have a Swift 3 SF314-54 i7, 1TB HDD, 128gb SSD, and 8GB DDR4 RAM. So Acer says it can support upto 12GB RAM however Crucial offers 100% compatibilty and says max memory supported is upto 16GB RAM. Also my 8GB RAM already installed,
(1)  how would i upgrade it to 12GB RAM when there isn't a 12GB RAM Module?
(2) Can I install a M.2 SSD and replace it with my 128GB SSD which has the OS installed onto it? If i can then how would I transfer the OS to the new M.2 SSD?
(3) Does upgrading void warranties?

Thanks, Alfaz

    Good Morning Alfaz !

    What exact model of your laptop?
    Example: SF314-54-379C

    As for your doubts:

    1 - this model supports up to 12Gb of RAM (4GB being integrated with the motherboard and a single slot for expansion of up to 8Gb, ie 4 + 8 = 12) DDR4


    2- Yes, you can substitute.
    But in this case it would be more complicated the cloning process of the factory OEM system once there are no other M.2 slot available.
    You could try to clone the system to the HDD and then reclaim it to the new SSD.

    3- The warranty issue varies by country and region.
    In my country, performing upgrades does not violate warranty, contact that in the process no part or part is damaged.
    I suggest you contact Acer directly and report back.

    There are several methods and software, such as Minitool Partition or Macrium Reflect.

    You can use the Minitool Partition, see:



    It is necessary to clone all partitions, including Recovery and the EFI system partition (typically 100mb)

    OK! In the specifications of the model, informs that it comes with 8gb. My question is if despite the service guide show that the models only come with 4gb onboard, if his model came with 8gb onboard, or if it came with 4gb onboard plus 4gb offboard?

    Ok! Nas especificações do modelo, informa que ele vêm com 8gb. A minha dúvida, é se apesar da guia de serviço mostrar que os modelos somente vêm com 4gb onboard, se o modelo dele veio com 8gb onboard, ou se veio com 4gb onboard mais 4gb offboard?

    In this case, ideally it should check with aida64 if the slot to add more ram memory is or is not being used!
