32GB x 1 sodimm RAM stick for laptop in Thailand??

Recommended Posts

I'm look for 32GB x 1 DDR4 2666MHz RAM stick for laptop within Thailand if possible.

 

So far I've only been able to find one at MemoryToday.com

But the price was more than usual (It should be cheaper than 2x16GB) and also no value option.

 

So I looked at amazon.com and saw

Samsung 32GB DDR4 2666MHz RAM Memory Module for Laptop Computers (260 Pin SODIMM, 1.2V)

for about 2900 baht (or 4100 + about 900 baht shipping + customs estimate if you use that option).  I'm sure you could use a re-mailer/forwarder from a local US address and get that cut to 1/2  1/3rd for shipping.

Are there any more local options for notebook memory?  32GB x 1 stick  (not 16gb x 2 or 8gb x 4)

Just curios, why would you need so much ram for notebook?

16GB is more than enough and 32GB would be overkill.

 

Unless you laptop has only 1 ram slot and you need more than 16GB.

I recommend you go with your notebook to a shop i.e. in Fortune Town and look for the RAM there and test it.

In my experience it's a bad idea to buy RAM from a list which should work but which is not sure.

 

I think the only sure version is to look on the manufacturer website and look for the approved RAM list and order EXACTLY that one and if possible from the manufacturer. But that is likely more expensive than going to a shop.

It depends on the application(s). I know a guy who plays with the stock market and it seems he has one of those applications which can use enormous amounts of RAM.

Lots of RAM also makes sense if you run multiple virtual machines - for whatever reason.

Yes, and it´s never bad to have a lot of free power too. Makes everything faster.

in my experience 2x 16gb will always be cheaper 
the higher you go the more expensive the stick always been the way 
right from go its always been like that and especially laptop sold in pairs

Perhaps it's a laptop with single channel memory. Dual channel is always better. 

Though, like others, interested as to why 32 GB of RAM and as to whether he has SATA or PCIe SSD fitted.

well if only has one slot it will either run single or interleaved 
dual is what it says dual hence 2 buts he is wrong to expect larger modules to be cheaper 

but agree ssd night and day

maybe there should be a rule specs screenshots model names

You'd be surprised if you have several tabs open just how much GB ram just firefox/chrome can use.

 

But multitasking, especially graphics editing type of programs, can easily take 0.5-2GB or more depending on the complexity.    It really depends on the user.

It doesn't make sense to use so much DDR memory. The notebook can only use a certain amount. 

8th+ gen intel and 3rd+ gen Ryzen notebooks can accept 64GB memory (2x32GB).  You can check bios and also the OS properties when you login.  On the amazon listing, several customers actually posted screenshots proving this. 

 

64 bit operating systems.

This particular laptop came with dvd drive, and it looks like they crippled the motherboard by only having 1 empty slot of RAM.  (already 4GB on-board RAM)  so with 16GB stick the total is 20GB; w/ 32GB stick, total is 36GB.

The intel optane memory can be swapped for a m.2 nvme pcie ssd.   But for now, 1TB 2.5" SSD + intel optane will suffice. 

 

At least the upgrading and swapping hdd/ssd/m.2/ram is simple.  And the cooling is pretty good so far. 

 

Since so many are curious as to the model laptop, you can look here:  Acer aspire 5  A515-53G-59M2

 

I already knew which memory type i needed.  Just was asking what domestic options i had to purchase a 1 x 32gb stick (besides MemoryToday)...Jib and Advice dont seem to carry this.

Your money would be better spent on SSD drives. Move the PCIe SSD to 256 GB, such as the https://www.invadeit.co.th/product/solid-state-drives-ssd/adata/256gb-xpg-sx8200-pro-pcie-gen3x4-m-2-2280-ssd-asx8200pnp-256gt-c-p041443/ and the SATA to an SSD, with the capacity of your choice, with DRAM, such as the Crucial MX 500 or the Samsung EVO 860.

 

Cheaper and more effective that buying a 32 GB module of RAM.

Just noted that you have stated that you have already fitted a 1 TB SSD.

It is possible i am mistaken.  But there is one sure way to find out (you put it in and see what happens). Newer laptop motherboards (8th gen compatible, maybe 7th gen intel also) can handle up to 64GB.

Some manufacturers may not have updated the literature or want you to buy the "gamer" model.  But the Amazon.com reviews help prove my point that it may be possible.

Advice had a real special on 10.10;  ฿2490 for 960gb Apacer Panther as340 2.5"!!

480gb was ฿1390.

 

1971925369_Adviceapacer960GBSSDpromotion.png.ecba95ea412b0ab38986441bae2c63eb.png

 

But only 893gb usable in practice : 

 

Tip: Look out for 11.11 next month for major suppliers.

 

I have considered adding m.2 pcie nvme 240 or 480gb.  We will see what the future holds. 

 

After 2 week return period is passed, i might sell the 1tb hdd that came with it. Along with the intel optane memory.

I think the original q was missed entirely though (where to locally source 1x32gb sodimm ram stick)
