Legion Y520T-25ICZ M.2 SSD Compatibility

2018-10-07, 18:59 PM

Hello Everyone,

 

I recently purchased a Legion Y520T-25ICZ desktop pc and was looking to add an SSD.  I've searched high and low and can't seem to find enough information as to which drive would be compatible.  I was looking at the SSD 970 EVO NVMe M.2 500GB SSD drive....... Is this drive compatible with my PC?  I've also taken a picture of the M.2 slot on the motherboard and attached for reference.  Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

Your machine storage:

Disk
Some: SATA 6.0Gb/s, 3.5" wide, 7200 rpm

Some: M.2 SSD / PCIe NVMe, PCIe 3.0 x 4, 32Gb/s

* 128GB SSD M.2 (2280) PCIe NVMe only supports PCIe 3.0 x 2, 16Gb/s

 

Some: Intel Optane™ Memory Ready, M.2

The Samsung EVO 970 will work in your PCIe 3x4 slot.
