How to Upgrade the RAM in your Synology DS423+ to 10GB and 18GB RAM Officially/Unofficially


The Synology DS423+ NAS is a NAS system that arrives with an impressive middle ground between Power, Efficiency and Price, thanks to that previously used Intel Celron J4125 CPU, as well as scaled back expandability and memory when compared to the DS923+ and DS920+ NAS Premium 4-Bay Diskstations. The DS423+ is one of the latest generation of Diskstation devices (in the 2022/2023 series), but seems to be targeting the home/SOHO/SMB user more than the more high business presentation of other recent releases by the brand. However, the system arrives with 2GB, but can be upgraded officially to a slightly unusual 6GB of RAM! The reason for this is that the initial 2GB of memory is soldered/fixed directly to the internal board as individual RAM modules, as opposed to arriving in a removable SODMM/RDIMM slot form. There is also an empty SODMM slot, which means that you can only install a 4GB official memory module in order to remain inside the official CPU maximum memory quantity – hence the 6GB maximum here.So, unsurprisingly, there are users that might want to upgrade that memory on Day 1 in order to remove any kind of potential bottleneck down the line (a VM/Container, modest Databases, lite-medium Surveillance environment, etc) or even just users that have set up the device to their own unique setup – but noticed that Memory usage is constantly hovering at the 60-70%. Synology NAS systems use quite proficient intelligent background memory use and flushing, but nevertheless, there are still plenty of users who want to scale up the base-level memory. In this article, I will show you how to upgrade the memory on your Synology DS423+ NAS, but also I will show several 3rd party (i.e Unofficial modules) that I have tested in this NAS.
