Upgrade legion y520t motherboard

hello, so I was super disappointed when I opened my huge new gaming tower to find the worlds smallest motherboard with only 2 sata ports and one pcie... Anyways, can anyone recommend specific motherboards i can upgrade using all the other original components, like the ram, ssd, and cpu? I have a y520t-25ikl 90h7 with the i5-7400

Hi Legion520tuser,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Checking with the hardware manual and parts lookup page (configuration > compatible tab) for compatible boards only shows 2 boards possible for the system and it does not seem to give you any additional features than those you currently have.

 

HMM page 45:

PN 00XK269 Y520T MB FRU B250 TW WIN DPK

PN 00XK268 Y520T MB FRU B250 TW NO DPK

 

Regards

Re: Upgrade legion y520t motherboard

Hello everyone, 

For anyone that is curious; I found out the case will only take mini-itx motherboards. You can mount a micro ATX but the bottom two mounting holes will be floating. The CPU however will work for sure in anything with a b250 chipset, I ended up getting a new case and a ASRock b250m fatality performance micro-atx board and it took the original CPU without an issue, same ram as well.

And we're back...

Move delayed but still coming
