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: 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.
