    I use the above configuration in mine, 8 x 4gb Crucial sticks I'd pulled from an old server, so it shouldn't be a problem.

    Glad to have seen this thread, as I've been looking for a PCI-e adapter for an M2 SSD.
    Lycom DT120 will have to be purchased. :)

    I did this when I was upgrading my rams to 32GB. Bought the RAMs off eBay, swap the heat sinks, re-insert back to the tray. So far so good.

    I did the same using fresh thermal pads on the chips but the original Apple heatsinks weren't a good fit, only partly covering the 2 rows of chips on either side. A bit of a messy job. I got fed up at the end and just inserted the last RAM stick with its skinny heatspreader. Not a massive difference in temps after all that as FB-DIMMs just run hot regardless.
