RAM Upgrade

sandeepkumar05sandeepkumar05 Member Posts: 3 New User
Hi, 
I have the Acer Nitro 5 AN515-31 and it has 8GBs of RAM at a frequency of 2400Mhz. According to the Task Manager,  2 of 2 slots are filled. But there is only one physical RAM slot when opened. So I presume that one is soldered. I want to upgrade the RAM. Can I use 8GB of RAM in one slot to make it 12GB of RAM? Also, what would happen if I were to  use 16GB+4GB RAM sticks?! Please help.

    OK! Your model has 4gb of offboard ram + 4gb of onboard ram. I suggest that you buy a 16gb ram of 2400mhz, cl17, but it will work in flex mode, in other words, 8gb will work in dual channel and the other 12gb will work in single channel.

    I suggest you send some screenshots of the ram settings with cpuz:

    These are what I got from CPU-Z. 

    Thank you so much for responding!

    In that case, you can install a ram that works at 2400mhz with cl17. But it will work in a flexible way. Now, can you take apart the ram compartment and send a photo? I think there is 4gb of onboard ram + 4gb of offboard ram. Also, can you provide the exact model? Example AN515-31-58vh.
