Just installed two memory modules which I’d ordered a couple of weeks ago from Verkkokauppa. It was relatively painless apart from a small cut I inflicted on my hand while cutting a cable tie with my blunt Leatherman blade. It was actually pretty unavoidable because of the cramped space. I couldn’t both hold the cable tie and dodge the knife.

I wasn’t really running out of memory yet in day-to-day use, but I’d already decided to invest in upgrades regularly when purchasing my current setup, to make it last as long as possible. With my previous computers I’ve postponed upgrades until the hardware could no longer meet software requirements, at which point the hardware was so obsolete that upgrade parts were hard to find.
The RAM I now installed was Kingston’s HyperX blu. They’re pretty neat-looking.
