TerraMaster F2-221

Upgrading the amount of RAM inside the TerraMaster F2-221 is not exactly a straightforward process, even once you have a compatible module at hand. In order to install a secondary RAM module, you need to remove the drive bays, the rear fan, and plate, then slide out the internal PCB so you can access the underside of the main board.

Officially supported RAM upgrade from TerraMaster

This is the only supported RAM module listed on TerraMaster's website, both because the company sells this memory and because it ensures NAS owners use the right modules for their upgrades. Should you install RAM from another vendor, the company may not offer assistance should something go wrong.

Additional Equipment

If you don't have a small screwdriver to reach in and remove the rear panel screws, you'll need a toolkit that has one.

Sometimes you don't need countless screwdriver tips, a brush, cable cutter, among other tools. This is what makes the Floureon toolkit more appealing for someone who won't be tinkering with hardware too often.
