Ideapad 330 15IKB 81DE0195AX SSD and RAM UPGRADE.

2018-12-01, 19:41 PM

Please let me know if the additional RAM of 8GB can be installed on the Lenovo Ideapad 330 Series 15IKB  (Model 81DE0195AX). Do we have 2 slots for RAM in this model. Please share the RAM type as well that is compatible with the laptop so I can order the proper one.

 Also is there SSD M.2 PCI or M.2 SATA slot available in the motherboard of my model? 

Thank you for taking the time to answer this.

My product specifications are:

Intel Core i3-7020U, 15.6 Inch HD, 4GB Ram, 1TB, AMD RADEON 530 2GB

Solved! See the solution

Hey there, MohamedN!

 

Welcome to the Lenovo community forum! 

 

As we were checking here, the Lenovo IdeaPad 330-15IKB comes with a 4GB memory soldered to systemboard and one additional DDR4 SO-DIMM socket. The laptop can hold up to 16GB max / 2133MHz DDR4, dual-channel capable. You can check the specs here https://psref.lenovo.com/Product/Lenovo_Laptops/ideapad_330_15_Intel?CID=ww:lenovosocial:20x9m6. Also, you can check the hardware maintenance manual https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/330-14ikb_81da_g2_330-15ikb_81dc_de_330touch-15ikb_81dh_81dj_hmm_201803.pdf?CID=ww:lenovosocial:20x9m6 (See page 83, number 5) for the tested RAM module for the laptop. 

 

In addition, the laptop has an available M.2 PCIe slot if you will add an SSD. 

 

Regards!

Hi gidz29!

 

The memory type that the Ideapad 330 15IKB only supports is DDR4-2133 according to the PSREF above. Installing a memory that is higher than the supported memory type, such as 2400mhz or 2666mhz, will downclock to what the processor can only support.

 

Regards,

I have a question for tech support. For the laptop mentioned, is this RAM supported:

Corsair Vengeance Performance SODIMM CMSX8GX4M1A2400C16 8GB 2400MHz CL16 DDR4 PC Memory

 

Also, if the extra RAM module has a different latency will there be ani issue?

Hi!

 

The speed of the RAM that you're referring to will downclock to DDR4-2133, as this is the supported memory type of the Motherboard. If you're getting a part that is outside the Parts List in the Manual Below, make sure to check the return option,

Re: Ideapad 330 15IKB 81DE0195AX SSD and RAM UPGRADE.

I have a litlle bit of change in the specifications.

i5 8th gen, 8gb ram 4gb soldered and 4gb removable, 1tb hdd, GTX 1050.

So i want to change that 4Gb ram to 8gb, I am confused on which ram to buy, Should i buy a 2133MHZ OR 2400 MHZ OR 2666 MHZ ?

In the task manager it shows the speed as 2400MHZ, and in the CPU-Z app the max. bandwith shows as DDR4-2666 (1333 MHZ)

JUST TELL ME WHICH TYPE OF RAM I SHOULD BUY?. Please reply as soon as possible, it is an urgent
