Lenovo G50-80 RAM upgrade

Hi, I am planning to upgrade my Ram...

query 1:

I have  a 4 GB Ram details: 

Type DDR3
Size 4096 MBytes
Manufacturer Ramaxel Technology
Max Bandwidth PC3-12800 (800 MHz)
Part Number RMT3170MN68F9F1600

 

I wanted to check if this RAM would be compatible with the 8 GB RAM i was planning to buy - 8GB DDR3L-1600 SODIMM

So together will this get me a 12 GB RAM working on my laptop? I was told by crucial that they might not be compatible & suggested that i remove the old chip & use only the new one that i buy

 

Query 2: Any other suggestions for a 8 GB RAM apart from the Crucial RAM? 

 

Appreciate any suggestions. Thank you.

Re: Lenovo G50-80 RAM upgrade

Hi cpujar , 

 

Greetings. 

 

Would you have a machine number we can use ?

Example : machine model number  80E501JFUS G50-80 , with i7-5500U would have 16 GB max (8GBx2) 

 

Platform Specifications :

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 

 

Currently you have stock RMT3170MN68F9F1600 4GB ( PC3-12800, 1.5V, 1.35V , CAS Supported: 5 6 7 8 9 10 11) but we are not sure about the reason of Crucial as of now to mix it with an 8 GB (thinking that we have same specifications). Mixing RAM can work but there are times that incompatibilities with how BIOS takes it fails booting . 

 

Listed on the hardware FRU parts manual : (Item 12 page 80)

Lenovo part number : 11202080 RAM, M471B1G73QH0-YK0 35nmQ 8GB DDR3L 1600

Lenovo part number : 11201301  RAM, Hyn HMT41GS6AFR8A-PB DDR3L  1600 8GB
Lenovo part number : 11202450 RAM, RMT3160ME68FAF-1600 8GB DDR3L 1600
Lenovo part number : 11201304 RAM, Mic MT16KTF1G64HZ-1G6E1  DDR3L 1600 8GB
Lenovo part number : 11202082 RAM, M471B1G73DB0-YK0 25nm 8GB DDR3L 1600
Lenovo part number : 11202707 RAM, SK HMT41GS6BFR8A-PB/RD 8GB DDR3L 1600

Re: Lenovo G50-80 RAM upgrade

Hi cpujar , 

 

I was trying to check for a confirmation case with 4 + 8 GN upgrade done and brand part used but not successful. 

Model 80L000ALUS was not offered with 8 GB Ram on purchase but comparing with other variants of G50-80 , same board and BIOS and supported CPU RAM as 16 GB max DDR3L 1333/1600, LPDDR3 1333/1600 . 

 

Parts listed on the hardware manual would be a good reference in picking an 8 GB upgrade as it was already tested compatible. Unable to verify other brands at the moment. 

 

Before any decisions , do check for return policy option just in case you are getting it outside the listed parts. 

 

Update us as it goes as it would be a good reference for our community. 

 

Regards

Re: Lenovo G50-80 RAM upgrade

Still a bit confused...which exact RAM would be compatible? DDR3L 1333/1600? the DDR3 or DDR3L? would appreciate if you could give me the best brand & model suggestion, do not want to waste time in ordering the incorrect RAM.
