Memory Amount

Recommended Posts

I have a nas emulating DS918 on a J1900 motherboard. I use it for backups and plexmedia. Right now It's running 4 gigs of ram. Is there any advantage to install more than the 4 gigs  I am using now. Seems to be running fine.

Depends on how many simultaneous connections you have, requesting encoded media streams. But I think that your CPU will be the bottleneck in case of heavy use, not the RAM. Think of the original boxes and their „low“ equipment

Okay thanks I think I'll stick with the 4 gigs. I've got a huge movie library and it seems to be streaming perfectly and the main other use for it is just backing up my other PCS and I'm getting real good transfer speed so no sense wasting money on more memory. Thanks for your opinion.
