Lenovo Ideapad 330-15IKB RAM upgrade

2019-11-17, 12:07 PM

Hello!
I have this model: 330-15IKB (Type 81DE) Laptop (ideapad) - Type 81DE - Model 81DE01K0IN

4 GB Ram is soldered, and 4GB is replacable.

I wish to replace it and put in a 16GB RAM stick. (So total 4+16GB)
Can I do that?
Various other discussions say that in my model, I can upgrade only to 4+8 = 12 GB.
However, here in the device specs, it says that the 16GB model is supported.
The same is said here, in the compatibility chart (Sheet: IP G; Column: V; Rows: 227 and 228).


Also, what is the difference between Lenovo 16G DDR4 2400 SODIMM MemoryC-WW, Lenovo 16G DDR4 2400 SODIMM MemoryC-JP, Lenovo 16G DDR4 2400 SODIMM Memory-WW and Lenovo 16G DDR4 2400 SODIMM Memory-JP?

 

Please guide me.


A 2400 or 2666MHz DDR4 laptop 16GB RAM like this or this will work, right? (I need >= 2133 MHz, right?)

Solved! See the solution

Hi 

 

Based on the ideapad 330-15IKB Platform Specifications as shown on the image below. On this system the MAX tested Memory is 16GB.

Some of this model did not came with 4GB soldered on them so they can use a 16GB RAM stick.

 

On your case since you have 4GB soldered, you can add upto 8GB for there is no available 12GB RAM in the market but that will not limit you from using a 16GB RAM stick especially if you already have it onhand so you can test if it will work since its not yet verified if a 4soldered + 16 RAM stick will not encounter any problem.

 

2400MHz or 2666MHz both will work/compatible with your computer.

2666MHz is better for RAM with higher frequency is technically faster.

 

The only difference between these RAM 16GB DDR4 2400 SODIMM MemoryC-WW, Lenovo 16G DDR4 2400 SODIMM MemoryC-JP, Lenovo 16G DDR4 2400 SODIMM Memory-WW and Lenovo 16G DDR4 2400 SODIMM Memory-JP are there manufacturer code but they all have same specs.

 

Both RAM sticks you saw from Amazon are compatible with your computer but once again a 4soldered + 16 RAM has never been verified yet to work without any problem on Ideapad 330-15IKB

 

NOTE: If you really want to try that 16GB RAM sitck  then please check on the return policy of the item so if it will not work then atleast you can still return it without any problem.

 

Hope this help answer your query.

 

Regards​

Thank you! That is a very detailed answer!

 

I am mostly planning to try out the 16 GB RAM in a few months. I will post my experience and the result on this thread, once I do so.

Hi AliabbasM,

 

I have the exact same laptop and the exact same question, and I'm looking forward to see if the 16 GB RAM upgrade will work on your system. [I hope you'll do it a bit sooner though ;-) ]

 

All the best and good luck.

I am overjoyed to annonce, that it works! I successfully replaced my 4 GB Removable Memory with a 16 GB Card. I now have a total of 20 GB memory. Plus, it works in dual channel mode!
For reference, I bought this RAM: https://www.amazon.in/gp/product/B07K3V55X6

Hi AliabbasM,

 

Ik am so glad to read it works, not only for myself, but most of all for you, so you did not waste your money, as it was a risk you were taking.

Of course following your positive experience I'm going to order the 16 Gb as well.

Thank you so much for keeping us posted.
