I'm going to upgrade my ram on Lenovo G50-30, but it is difficult to find compatible one. Can you answer what properties of ram should be? I have stoped on Micron DDR3 1600 8GB (CT102464BF160B). It has CL11 timing and 1.35 voltage needed. Is it compatible with my laptop?
Thanks for the answer.

Welcome to the Community Forums.
As per specifications from the hardware manual page 26-28:
RAM: DDR3L, 1066MT/s,1333MT/s
Standard memory: DDR3L, SODIMM × 1 / SODIMM × 2 (max 8 GB / 16 GB)
Product specification for G50 models:
N2830 / N3530 models:
8GB max / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, non-parity,
one 204-pin SO-DIMM socket, system automatically clocks down for 1333MHz DDR3 memory controller
Other models: 16GB max / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, non-parity,
dual-channel capable, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets
Recommended RAM listed on FRU on item 12 page 80 of the hardware manual.
Those are OEM certified RAM that you can order as Micron DDR3L (low voltage) 1600 may also work as it matches base specification as Part number 11201304, MT16KTF1G64HZ listed among the FRU.
Hope this help answer your query.
