I have to agree with you azureus is not a thin client by any stretch of the imagination....but I am pretty well impressed how well it runs on the thecus in relation to my xp laptop. I guessing that because it runs in console mode on the nas, java is not doing the "hard work" of looking after a gui.....
oh and just tried 2 Corsair VS1GB400C3 dimms in my 5200 pro. Neither will boot, it just sits there bleeping at bios post test
I'm just wondering whether Corsair have badged different dimms with the same part number...could someone who has a working dimm please describe theirs. Mine are double sided 16 chip devices, chips are stamped with "CORSAIR 64M8BDC PRO900609"
"Value Select modules are built with RAMs that are procured at the wafer level and are packaged and tested to our specifications. As such, they are not available as individual ICs, only as modules. This approach allows us to ship product with very good performance characteristics, low product cost, and a very low return rate." at corsair support forum....
I take this statement to mean that the value select models could actually contain chips with the same markings but those chips may indeed contain silicon from different suppliers....
I've ordered a unknown brand 1gb dimm that uses the same chips as the 512mb stick (16 instead of 8 obviously) in my 5200pro. It's winging it's way from hong kong so I don't expect to receive it for a week or so but will report back when I get it.
I read every article here, and did quite a bit of research on this topic. I'm happy to report that I've successfully used a Kingston ValueRam KVR333X64C25/1G, easily available on NewEgg for $34, on my N5200Pro. My hypothesis was that any 1 GB "low-density" ram would work. Since I wanted to keep it the same PC2700 (DDR333) CL2.5 as the original 512MB, I searched high and low for a low-density 1-GB, and Kingston turned out to be the most accessible. Note, it should be a teeny bit faster than the Corsair VS1GB400C3 people have been using here.
Additional research showed these low-density DDR333 RAM may also be compatible - no guarantees, but worth a try if you can get them.
I managed to try using alternate 1 GB module PC400 module and it seemed that it took but what's the way to confirm the memory report that it should show.
I tried using command from ssh and got the following Total Memory info: MemTotal: 905760 kB MemFree: 623204 kB Buffers: 63208 kB Cached: 130440 kB
Can anyone confirm the best way to ensure module took properly? It seems that it's pretty close to 1GB but just wanted to know if using cat /proc/meminfo would be the approx. command. I also managed to test the following module as well and it seems to work too:
