    So, I just picked up a new-to-me CF-31SBLEA1M to upgrade from my beloved CF-30. It currently has 8GB RAM and I'd like to upgrade to 16GB. The threads on here about upgrading the CF-31 are all dated it seems and I was wondering if anyone currently running 16GB had feedback on what memory modules they used.

    I'm thinking of picking up this:
    https://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod...-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=

    as it meets the required specs for the CF-31. Any opinions or suggestions?

    The Intel® 7 series Express chipset QM77 will support 16gb of ram.
    Now will the BIOS? I do not know that for sure.
    The official spec sheet says 8gb.

    Well,
    Thanks for posting that you had a mk4! My mk3 is going back to the seller as the optical drive bay didn't work. Two drives, one brand new, and no worky. I got my hands on a mk4 with less hours but bare bones for an even better deal.

    I'll let y'all know how the upgrade goes!

    And, we're working! Not in the Mk3 that I posted about, but in my Mk4, CF-31WBLAXLM.

    16GB DDR3L-1600 RAM working without a hitch. Bonus was being able to install both sticks through the underside access cover (terminology?). There was no need to remove the bottom case.

    Memory cover. And yes, when you remove the black plastic spacer thing you can install the RAM without taking the cover off.
