Legion 5 model 15ACH6H Ram upgrade query, Is the Ram I bought compatible?

2021-09-15, 13:41 PM

Hello Everyone,

 

I'm a bit of a novice to PC's and have recently bought a Legion 5 laptop model 15ACH6H and I have bought some Ram for it to replace the 16gb that came with the laptop.

 

I went in quite quick and bought the following Ram without really checking too much if it was compatible.  This is the same model laptop that I have:

 

82JU002YUK, Lenovo Legion 5 (2021) AMD Ryzen 7 16GB | Box.co.uk

 

This is the Ram upgrade I have bought:

 

KF432S20IBK2_32 (kingston.com)

 

Is this ram compatible with this laptop?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated,  thanks

Hello @HyperTriggerEx ,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

It should be compatible. However please be advised that the Legion machines do not have support for XMP.

So if the RAM sticks require XMP configuration to run at the fastest speed it may not be possible.

Hope this helps.
Regards,
Jack_Lenovo1

I wasn’t sure what you meant by XMP, but looking into it this is an Intel standard and my laptop is AMD based.

 

The blurb that was on the website where I bought the RAM from was as follows:

 

Get your notebook or small form factor machine fully equipped with Kingston FURY Impact DDR4 SODIMM and minimize system lag. Ready for AMD Ryzen and Intel XMP-ready in capacities up to 64GB, Plug N Play FURY Impact DDR4 automatically overclocks to the highest frequency published, up to 3200MHz, to support Intel and AMD’s latest CPU technologies. Slot in the sleek black PCB for a hassle-free boost, no need to tinker with the BIOS. Upgrade your system’s performance and still run cool, quiet, and efficiently, thanks to FURY Impact DDR4’s low 1.2 voltage.

 

The above would seem to indicate I’ll be ok with an AMD based system.  Would the above paragraph seem to indicate that it will work ok with my Laptop.

 

If not I may send it back and go for this Instead, which I saw in a YouTube video was 100% compatible.

 

Crucial RAM CT2K16G4SFRA32A 32GB Kit (2x16GB) DDR4 3200 MHz CL22 Laptop Memory https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B08C4X9VR5/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_MFDAPVQJBX3FKQT009K6?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

 

Thanks for all your help on this one :).

I have the same ram but when I bought it it was called Hyper X Impact which they have now renamed Fury.

I have no problems using it just as it came with no XMP available.

I just installed my new RAM, you pretty much only need the triangular opening pick and a small philips screwdriver. Follow the video and you’re golden
