How to Upgrade the RAM in your Synology DS723+ to 32GB and 64GB RAM Officially/Unofficially


The Synology DS723+ NAS is a NAS system that arrives with an impressive middle ground between Power, Efficiency and Price, thanks to that AMD Ryzen R1600 CPU, flexibility in a 10GbE upgrade, storage expandability and (of course) arriving with ECC memory. The DS723+ is one of the latest generation of Diskstation devices (in the 2022/2023 series) that seems to be targeting the more advanced SMB user, prioritizing throughput and performance, whilst also doubling down on data integrity with things like BTRFS and ECC memory. However, the system arrives with 2GB, but can be upgraded officially to a very impressive 32GB (for the scale of the system)! So, 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 (VMs, Databases, Surveillance, 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 DS723+ NAS, but also I will show several 3rd party (i.e Unofficial modules) that I have tested in this NAS.

Thanks for posting this. I saw the link above a few months back when I started researching RAM for a DS923+, thanks for sharing the detail.

On the topic of understanding ECC and RAM issues, this video was an interesting fork in the road folks might be interested in watching.

YouTube guy explains his super detailed analysis why non-ECC memory resulted in him having a corrupted hard drive over a long period of time:
The TLDR (or W in this case) of it is this guy had an old computer with some RAM. He was trying to make a backup image of the hard drive on his machine and found the hash value to be different from the source and his backup. It turned out to be issues with his RAM... and the utility...he explains it while touching slightly on why ECC memory is better than non-ECC memory indirectly while going through his probably excessively :) detailed analysis and implication of the tools used to backup the drive. Either way, I appreciated that one...it was a great video to nerd out on anyway... :)
