Hello ! My current laptop is the model lenovo y520-15ikbn 80wk004nlm And my questions are :
Does my pc has the extra spot to use the sdd while using a hdd ?
What type of ssd is compatible with my pc?
And which of the next 3 ssd would you recommend to me ?
PCIe Gen3x4 P34A80 256GB
Corsair Force MP510 240GB
Sorry if this is very basic but I am very new to all of this word of pc specs and I dont have the budget to replace things like this
Solved! Go to Solution.

Welcome to the Community Forums.
The Y520 is capable of using a M.2 SSD at the same time as an HDD. You can use the photo below to know where to attach the M.2 SSD you can also use the manual in this link (page 36).
I would also recommend going for the SSD that is both budget friendly and is easy to find.
Hope this helps.

For my undestading yes , all three ssd I mentioned are comptaible with the model y520
And yes you can move all your files from one ssd to another ,if you dont have a hdd where you can transfer your files to the new ssd you will need a ssd adapter to do so because the model only has a port for one ssd m.2(so you can transfer files and the OS from one to the other ) , just check is the same type (M.2) , the same same memory storage or bigger

Maybe I can be of assistance.
Some members have already had success with cloning/copying the contents of their HDD's to newer SSD's by using programs such as Macrium Reflect.
You can also use this article for some helpful steps.
I also do not have a Y520-15IKBN available for testing but I am currently running a setup with a 1050ti graphics card and I am only able to reach up to 40-50 fps with occasional drops whenever Witcher 3 renders something new.
I suggest turning the game settings down a bit and check if you still have any performance drops.
Hope this helps.

i bought the laptop just with nvme 1tb i added a ssd, had the frame empty for ssd, was simple for me.
witcher is at 150fps+ but stutters when i rotate camera dunno why.maybe cpu is not enough for it.
gpu is 68C and is doing fine cpu at 80-85C,i reduced the voltage -0,125mv possible be that.
