Lenovo G500 Memory Upgrade

Hi

 

I have lenovo G500 Series. I want to upgrade Ram memory but i want to ask technical information first before make an order.

 

Lenovo G500 can take up to 8GB ram / slot?

Type of frequency? Up to 1600Mhz or 1866Mhz or 2133Mhz?

 

Let you know that i have unlock InsydeH20 bios and i have advanced settings now. 

(It seems that i can choose frequency up to 2133 Mhz ....but default option is Auto)

Or it is risky to change bios ram frequency for my new Mem Ram? 

 

I want to buy 

1) KINGSTON HYPER X IMPACT 16GB SODIMM DDR3L NON ECC CL9 1600MHZ (HX316LS9IBK2/16) (2 X 8192)

or

2)HyperX 16GB (Kit of 2) 2133MHz DDR3L CL11 1.35V SODIMM HyperX Impact Laptop Memory HX321LS11IB2K2/16

or

3)HyperX 16GB (Kit of 2) 1866MHz DDR3L CL11 1.35V SODIMM HyperX Impact Laptop Memory HX318LS11IBK2/16

 

Thank you

Re: Lenovo G500 Memory Upgrade

Hi David_Bodo,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Would you have the machine number (MTM) from the sticker or get it from here?

It can help us get details specfic to your models variant and other details.

 

In general, G500 specification DDR3L-1600MHz max 16GB so 2 sticks of Kingston DDR3L (low voltage) 1600 MHz should work fine. 

 

Regards

Re: Lenovo G500 Memory Upgrade

Thank you very much for your reply.

 

I just ask it because i want to upgrade laptop....

 

Chipset HM76

 

Product: 20236
Serial: xxxxx
BIOS: 78CN25WW(V2.03)

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I made other upgrade in past

I have now Intel core i7 3610qm (It has i3 3110m then i upgrade in i5 3210m and now  i7 3610qm)

Also i have SSD samsung evo 850  500GB in 1st Slot and SSHD Seagate  Firecuda 2TB in Cd-rom place.

I make DvD-CD external because everybody use USB stick now.

EXTRA question

The only problem is that Cd rom place is  Sata II and increase SSHD speed.

Is there another slot in sata III in laptop motherbord ? 

 

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Now i want to upgrade RAM memory.

 

Also i unlock InsydeH20 Bios and i have Advanced configuration open. 

My question is that it has option  1066MHz     1333MHz     1600MHz     1866MHz     2133MHz  and Auto.

Then i thought if i can add Memory with 2133 Mhz or 1866MHz . 

I know that laptop use up to 1600Mhz for sure.

 

Also CPU i73610qm supports up to 1600Mhz memory.

Hi David_Bodo,

 

Greetings.

 

OEM recommended RAM functional speed 1600MHz which they have certified for the machine so we cannot guarantee going more.

 

Suggested parts are also listed here with part number 11200504 SS M471B1G73BH0-YK0 DDR3L along with 42 substitutes available for the 8 GB DDRL3 1600MHZ SODIMM (click memory on commondity type).
