Lenovo Y700 - RAM Upgrade

2016-10-08, 19:39 PM

Hi all, 


I'm planning on upgrading the RAM in my Y700-15ISK system, I recently installed a 1tb SSHD and this is my next step. 

My only issue is that I'm not sure on what RAM is applicable, using sites such as Kingston's system scanner and also Crucial's doesn't show my system specs accurately and therefore I don't feel all too confident about their results. 

After looking into is seems I need DDR4 SO-DDIM which is running at 1.2v and 2133MHz. I currently have (1x4GB) installed and I am planning on upgrading to a 16GB kit (2x8GB). 

After looking about I came to find this: http://www.ebuyer.com/728407-corsair-16gb-2x8gb-ddr4-sodimm-2133mhz-c15-memory-kit-cmso16gx4m2a2133c15?mkwid=s_dc&pcrid=51482421779&pkw=&pmt=&gclid=CMGLjPH2y88CFcGVGwodumsH3g

Does anyone have any opinions?

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !


The memory you have shown is comparable to what you need. 


What problems did you have on Crucial's website regarding system specs?  Here is what I found for your model......
