I know this might be repeated question. But I would like to know a final answer to that.
I have a lenovo legion Y520-IKBN laptop, Orginially it came with 8gb of DDr4 memory.
It originally came with Ramaxel 01AG818(8gb single stick) which has a clock speed of upto 2666Mhz.
I have gone through the list of compatible RAM modules for my piece.
In total there were 18 possible replacement options
1) For the FRU:01AG818 (which came with the original laptop) single channel, there were 9 substitutes. Does that mean, I can add one of those 9 substitutes for additional memory(i.e 8gb samsung/Sk Hynix to make it 8gb Ramaxel + 8gb Samsung/SK hynix). (Even though they are from different manufacturer but have same specifications on paper and are mentioned in the compatibility list.)
2) Assuming I am currently on budget and I am willing to purchase ram. Can I include a 4gb to enable the 4gb+8gb dual channel on the laptop.
By the way this 4gb one having the FRU: 01AG829
Which is also manufactured by ramaxel, and the clock frequency(2666MHz) and CL(19) are same as in the case of original FRU(8gb variant).
Solved! Go to Solution.

Thanks for the info. I have gone throught the other forums. I finally decided to get a 8gb+8gb(16gb ram in total). I installed the same FRU which I found on ebay and it perfectly works fine.
