Usually 8+16 is not recommended.

8+8 or 16+16.

Re: UPGRADE RAM Y520

Hi NATALIROM,

 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

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

 

It has been tested to work with 2 pieces of 16GB 2400 MHz DDR4 rams but was not offered to this machine due to costing and that limited end user need for a 32 GB.

 

You can try to check with resellers like Crucial as long as the specification is the same. This is similar to the post commented by our guru : " Honestly, brand matching does not matter much, what matters is the -1) Type (Size/Voltage/Gen) - DDR4 2133/2400MHz , 1.2v (I would think) 2) CAS Latency values - These are usually depicted in format of 3 numbers such as (15-15-15) or even 4 in some cases or just like CL15. ".

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

I would like to add to Spidey's post. 

Try to contact Hynix for find a 16gb which suits your Laptop Model.

 

16gb + 16gb(32gb) or 8gb + 8gb (16gb) is generally recommended. Make sure that you purchase it from the same brand, to avoid any issues.
