DDR3 SO-DIMM to DIMM adapters for long-term usage?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

After a round of laptop memory upgrades, I have ended up with ten 4GB DDR3 SO-DIMMs.

 

Looking around, I noticed there are various 204-pin DDR SO-DIMM to 240-pin DIMM adapters available on AliExpress, Amazon, eBay, etc.

 

These seem to be intended for use in dedicated memory testers, but I am wondering if anyone has tried using them long-term in a PC, and if so, what the results were (stable, etc.).

 

Regards,

Hello,

 

As a follow-up, I purchased six (6) DDR3 SO-DIMM to DIMM adapters, in order to use 24GB (6?4GB DDR3 SO-DIMMs) in an MSI X58M system that previously had 12GB (6?2GB DDR3 DIMMs) in it.  The motherboard is only recognizing four adapted memory modules.  I am unsure if this is an issue with the memory, the adapter cards, or the motherboard.  I have some additional memory modules I can try, but suspect it maybe a load limitation with using the adapters.

 

Regards.

Never knew these exsisted. These sound like a great idea. But like your suspecting its probably a load issue.
