Lenono B570e "one slot" RAM - 8GB

Sorry in advance, i have seen that there are already many post like this but i can't find the right answer. I have a Lenovo B570e with Core i3-2328M and 4GB Ram, my model have only one RAM slot. If i put an 8GB Ram module in the only slot that i have does it work or the maximum for "one slot" version is 4GB? Someone have already tried this?

Thanks.

Hi there, Emanule-

 

Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.

 

No. It doesn’t work for 8GB. However, the slot can utilized maximum of 4GB on your machine.

 

Update us how it goes.

For all those interested, yesterday I upgraded the CPU to a Core i7-2630QM, today I installed an 8GB RAM module in the only slot I have and it works, the 8GB are recognized.

sorry for the inconvenience caused Emanuel ..

 

Looking at this datasheet and page 37 of the hardware maintenance manual, the B570e supports:

 

  - Link to picture

 

 Up to 8GB DDR3-1333 (PC3-10600 @ 1.5v)

(Dual Channel Supported)
(Standard models up to 4GB)

 

Although a DDR3-1600 would work (which will downclock to 1333 anyway) and the memory controller, which is integrated to the CPU, supports up to 16GB, I haven't seen anyone successfully installed 8GBx2 RAM on this machine (dual channel version) as I suspect that the motherboard's BIOS is set to only accept 4GB per slot.

 If you have a single 8GB RAM though, it won't hurt the system anyways. Also, click here for similar thread.

 

Update us how it goes.
