Hi Giovanni B12,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

According to the Psref. documentation for this device, the Legion Y520 (MT: 80WK) has the following Memory & Storage Configuration/Support:

 

Memory:

  • 32GB max / DDR4 2400MHz, two 260-pin SO-DIMM sockets

 

Storage:

  • Storage (opt) - HDD / 2.5" wide, 5400 rpm, 7mm high, SATA 6.0Gb/s support
  • M.2 SSD (opt)- M.2 SSD / PCIe 3.0 x 4
  • Optical - None

Both the Corsair kit and the Samsung 970 EVO Plus fall under the documented support for this device and should be compatible.

 

Regards

 

Voithos
