Skinny motherboard

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, my motherboard is kinda skinny (small). Is there a way I can buy like a cable or something so I can have more ram on it? I am planning on using it to host a minecraft server and it's just terrible with 8gb ddr3 ram, it can barely handle a thing.... It would be amazing if it is possible. What do you think ?

So I'm guessing you only have 2 DIMM slots on your board, and you're using 2 x 4GB of DDR3? The obvious answer is to buy a new RAM kit that has at least 8GB per module, then double up on that to go 2 x 8GB.

eBay is quite literally drowning in 8GB DDR3-sticks.

As @SPARTAN VI mentioned, the only solution is to get 8GB sticks of RAM, there's not other way to add RAM.

What socket are you on? AliExpress has cheap LGA 1155 boards. Not sure how easy those are to get in Sweden.

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016
