Hi awtoner,


Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.

 

Assuming Windows is installed in Samsung NVMe SSD (128GB), so if you are looking to increase the size of SSD below are few OEM recommended :

[oldimg]125065iACF7183B829FE0DE[/oldimg]

Besides that, you can use other brands as well for SSD and Memory Modules, compatible upgrades for your system from Crucial. 

 

Legion Y720 supports maximum of 32GB / DDR4 2400MHz, two SO-DIMM sockets. You can use any Memory Modules matching with stated specifications. For list of complete OEM recommended parts please follow HMM-page 62. 

 

I hope the above information helped you.

Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

 

Regards,
Prabhansh

I would go with the Crucial 2400mhz speed as that is what the laptop comes with and I know crucial works in the laptop. I am a huge fan of Corsair but I am not 100% sure it would work in the laptop. If the store your buying from has a good return policy I would try the corsair stick as it has much better ram timings

dual 8 will be faster than a single 16.

https://uae.souq.com/ae-en/crucial-16gb-single-ddr4-2400-mt-s-pc4-19200-dr-x8-unbuffered-sodimm-260-pin-memory-ct16g4sfd824a-8gb-ct8g4sfd824a-24851126/i/

or

https://uae.souq.com/ae-en/corsair-memory-kit-16gb-ddr4-2400mhz-sodimm-memory-24433963/i/

both kits look good. the Corsair has crazy good ram timings which will be faster. Its also double the price so you will have to decide that one as its definitely not going to be double the speed of the crucial kit.

good luck
