Lenovo Legion y540 DDR4 RAM and SSD 2.5 adding.

Hello,

I bought Lenovo Legion Y540 with i7-9750h, 8 GB DDR 2666 mhz ram, 512 gb SSD and gtx 1660 ti.

I want to add 8 gb ram's and additional SSD in the emty slot and i have questions. What ram manufacturer is stock installed in this laptop (I want to add excactly the same as stock)? If i add another 8 gb from different manufacturer 2666mhz they will work good together?

And what type of SSD i should buy to add it on emty slot? Maybe know any good and they will work perfect with this laptop.

 

 

Thank you

Hi iamsimas,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

With MTM 81SX00E5LT, you have PN 01AG855 (Samsung M471A1K43DB1-CTD) 8GB DDR4 2666Hz or any of its substitutes shown here in parts lookup.

 

You can add another 8GB DDR4 2666Hz from a different manufacturer and it would even be expected to work as dual channel.

 

For the SSD as mentioned on the other post (similar case as your motherboard location), adding a SATA HDD/ SSD 2.5 7mm like those on the parts lookup page (click on compatible> then filter commodity type to harddrive) or those offered by other resellers for the SSD.

 

You also need the HDD cable PN 5C10R40220.

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

PN 5C10R40220 i think this cable is in complete set in the laptop box (cause i saw it and  i wondered what is needed for)? It will work for SSD 2,5 or only with HDD 2,5?

Hi iamsimas,

 

Then that is great because not all folks have it included in the package (regional) or lost it with the box. 

 

I think you are good to go.

 

Regards
