RAM and SSD compability Legion Y530.


I recently bought a Y530 and i want to upgrade some parts.

So i considered adding a ssd SATA to replace my hhd , a ssd M.2 to replace intel optane , and a dual channel 16GB (2x8Gb) ram to replace 8gb single channel ram,  for a performance boost,

here the list : (  my question : Is the part below compatible with Y530 legion?)


1. RAM : Corsair DDR4 16GB (2x8GB) SODIMM Dual Channel @2400Mhz- CMSX16GX4M2A2400C16, LINK :
2. STORAGE : Samsung SSD 860 PRO 2.5 inch MZ-76P512BW (512 GB) Interface : SATA 6Gb/s, LINK :
3. STORAGE : SSD Samsung 970 EVO NVMe M.2 250GB Interface : PCIe Gen 3.0 x4, NVMe 1.3, LINK
btw , its my legion y530 recent spec : 15ICH I7-8750H/GTX1050/DDR4 8Gb/ 1TB HHD/ 16Gb Intel Optane/

Would suggest to refer to the HMM for the Y530

1) RAM: As long as the specifications of RAM match, it should work fine. But I would suggest you to buy the RAM from FRU list or you can check crucial website

I was suggest the ballistic model if you are looking for a lower CL ram.

Crucial website also lists other compatible upgrades like ssd's. But if you are a samsung Fan-boy you can go for the ssd by samsung.


2) Samsung 860EVo and 970EVo both are compatible and work fine. I have recently upgraded my ram (with similar FRU) and ssd (with 960evo).



Tips: Make sure to disconnect your battery and drain any power while installation of any upgrades.
