@Trexx, I want to upgrade my Ryzen nas with ram, and wanted to buy the same ones you had. But where I live, they are called red, black and white kingston fury Hyper X.

I'm unsure what the difference is, can you help?

HyperX Fury Black DDR4 2666MHz 2x16GB (HX426C16FBK2/32)
HyperX Fury White DDR4 2666MHz 2x16GB (HX426C16FWK2/32)
HyperX Fury Red DDR4 2666MHz 2x16GB (HX426C16FRK2/32)

Also, did the NAS perform better with more ram, its said that Ryzen excels with more ram.

Here is what I put in mine for the Kingston HyperX part #
HX426C16FBK2/32
https://www.amazon.com/Kingston-Technol ... B06XKSPW5V

Stay with the 2666 speed (or even slightly faster if cheaper).

I initially went for the hyperx fury black 16gb (8gb x 2). Unfortunately these were the non kit.... they booted up fine, with uptime for a couple of hours, but i later then had a random reboot. i unfortunately did not do a memtest86 or try it on downgraded qts 4.3.6 as i probably prematurely returned it for a replacement, thinking the issue was incompatible ram. Now i suspect the issue wasn't the ram compatibility, but something on QTS 4.4.1 that caused the random reboot (because using my original ram after downgrading to 4.3.6, i no longer had random reboots). But i didn't do the test so i don't know for sure in regards to the hyperx ram compatibility i installed.


For me i'm using 2x8gb (16gb total) crucial (non kit :( )
Crucial 8GB DDR4-2666 UDIMM
CT8G4DFS8266

Seems to work fine. although i would recommend going for DUAL kits for better compatibility.

On the crucial and Kingston websites there is a validation/compatibility list for TS-877. I'm not sure for other ram, but at least those 2 for this particular model have a validation list.

@Trexx, any reason you dont use stock ram (8gb) with your black fury set of 32gbs?

As for black vs red etc. makes no difference is just the color of the heatsinks.

Thanks, i'm waiting for upgrading with the next 32gb chunk, so in the meantime I thought about putting in the other 8. Unsure if the difference in ram will make an issue.

¨Congratulations on the upgrade!

Just to add to more experience...

Just successfully installed a 32GB Corsair Vengance LPX kit (2x16GB 2666 MHz) in my TVS-1282-i5-16G together with the original 16GB (2x8), no issues detected so far - Dual channel on and all.
Now it's only been running for 5 hours so it's a bit early to conclude anything, but so far so good.

Kit Serial: CMK32GX4M2A2666C16
QNAP TVS-1282 - i5
4 x 16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-2666
4 x 4TB Seagate IronWolf (ST4000VN008) - RAID10
2 x 1TB Intel 660p M.2 Nvme SSD - RAID0 - Read Cache
2 x 512GB Intel 545s SATA SSD's - RAID0
