SODIMM To DIMM Converter Documentation - Favalava


So I ordered an 8gb stick of DDR4 for my rig and Newegg dun goofed. 
I'm now the owner of 32GB (16x2) of SODIMM 2400. I check the new ram kit and it goes for $230 after the holiday sales. 
I decided to hold onto it and give the old Linus Video a test.

In the video, he doesn't run any gaming or productivity benchmarks so I've decided to follow through and make some posts here about my process and results. 
I just ordered my converters from ebay, at around half the price of when linus made the video. They should be here by the 4th and I'll give you guys an update by then. 

I've been looking hardcore around the internet for some more information on this subject and other youtubers who've done it, but it's tough. 
There's not a lot of information here and what is available is from smaller channels which don't have the workflow or resources to deliver promising, overwhelmingly credible results. 

So yea. TLDR, I spent $45 on 8GB DIMM and got 32GB SODIMM valued at $280 normally... 
Wish me luck yall, you know I'm about the CCmaker and 1080ti footage and would love to handle 4k editing once I have 32GB of ramm.

You could try selling the SODIMMs or trading them for normal ones, I'd try that first :)

I came across some 2x8 GB SODIMM DDR4 rated at 2133 and was in need of upgrading from my previous 2x4 GB. Based on the video quoted above I order some cheap adapters off amazon and am quite impressed by the results. I was able to overclock my ram to 2400, and tighten the timings one notch better as well. The one thing I wish I was able to do is to get them to work with my normal desktop ram for the full 24 GB, but 16 is better than 8 so no worries.


I've had no issues regarding stability, although I haven't felt the need to run a stability checker overnight or anything.
