Re: Lenovo Y520 RAM upgrade

Hi AndrewZed,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


You can check on this discussion for reference to your query.


As mentioned:


Below are the OEM tested parts for your system: source, page 66 

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


Similarly, you can place your serial number here in the parts lookup so that the specific machine model can enlist the compatible (under configuration) commodity type (choose memory to filter). Mentioned here are OEM tested parts certified for your machine. 


If you are getting a thrird party part, ensure that you have a good return option just in case. Choose the ones that matches the provided specification (not much on the branding) DDR4 2400MHz similar CL as listed if possible and it should work just fine.


I hope this helps answer your query.
