Intel NUC NUC7i5BNH - OPTANE MEMORY UPGRADE

Hi, I was surfing through the Intel Web for the specs of the Intel NUC 7i5BNH, and I saw that the system is compatible with the following Optane memory:

Intel16GB M.2 PCIe NVMe memory

MEMPEK1W016GA

Intel Validated

However, after navigatiing through a store to find such memory, I was being offered the next level of Optane memory which is 32 Gb.

Intel Optane Memory Module 32 GB PCIe M.2 80mm MEMPEK1W032GAXT

I was wondering if this 32GB Optane memory module could be compatible with the 7i5BNH?

Thanks.

Yes, you certainly can - and, in fact, for accelerating larger-sized HDDs, this 32GB version can (eventually) improve performance even more (i.e. more space for caching more files).

Be careful, there are even larger (64GB+) modules on the market, but these modules have a different purpose.

Hope this helps,

Hello all

 

 

Greetings, I would like to share with you that I have done a quick lap on my side with an Intel® NUC Kit NUC7i7BNH (https://ark.intel.com/products/95065/Intel-NUC-Kit-NUC7i7BNH https://ark.intel.com/products/95065/Intel-NUC-Kit-NUC7i7BNH) using Intel® Optane™ Memory Series (https://ark.intel.com/products/99742/Intel-Optane-Memory-Series-32GB-M_2-80mm-PCIe-3_0-20nm-3D-Xpoin... https://ark.intel.com/products/99742/Intel-Optane-Memory-Series-32GB-M_2-80mm-PCIe-3_0-20nm-3D-Xpoin...) and Windows® 10 64 bit and I was able to set the system with no problem.

 

 

Please let me know the BIOS version installed on your Intel® NUC.

 

 

Hope this help.

 

 

Regards,
