The max Qnap recommends is 8GB DDR4. But you CPU spec says you could in theory upgrade up to 32GB.
If you have no luck finding compatible RAM try searching” hs-453dx ram” it has the same compatibility. Most likely PHS-memory will come up:
32GB (2x16GB) Kit RAM memory for QNAP HS-453DX-8G DDR4 SO DIMM 2400MHz UK
16GB (2x8GB) Kit RAM memory for QNAP HS-453DX-8G DDR4 SO DIMM 2400MHz UK
I have also found this single rank RAM:
Crucial CT2G4SFS624A 2 GB (DDR4, 2400 MT/s, PC4-19200, Single Rank x16, SODIMM, 260-Pin) Memory
Crucial 4GB Single DDR4 2400 MT/S (PC4-19200) SR x8 SODIMM 260-Pin Memory – CT4G4SFS824A
Compatible Crucial RAM upgrades up to 8GB:
Crucial 8GB Single DDR4 2400 MT/S (PC4-19200) SR x8 SODIMM 260-Pin Memory – CT8G4SFS824A
Compatible Crucial RAM upgrades up to 16GB:
Crucial 16GB Kit (16GBx2) DDR4 2400 MT/s (PC4-19200) DR x8 SODIMM 260-Pin Memory – CT2K16G4SFD824A
Some might want to try 32GB. Many people have said it works. We have tested this today and it works.
Crucial 32GB Kit (16GBx2) DDR4 2400 MT/s (PC4-19200) DR x8 SODIMM 260-Pin for Mac – CT2K16G4S24AM
It has been quite a while before I was able to successfully upgrade the RAM of my QNAP TS-453D. When using Corsair earlier in my NAS everything stopped, so no rattle of the drives amd only 2 beeps. So I returned the memory and ordered the same type Corsair memory (still CT2K16G4SFD824A) from another company but with no luck either. Returned those too, but what I time it takes to get a refund ☹
Actually I was not aware of your website until I got into memory problems but visited since my firts mail to check for updates. That is how I came on the Kingston modules (KCP426SD8/16).
Today I received 2 pcs. Of Kingtston 16GB, 2666MHz modules, installed them and they work just fine. I really appreciate the job you are doing and enjoy your reviews on Youtube.
So thank you very very much,
Kind regards, and stay healthy,
