Lenovo Ideapad 330S-14IKB RAM upgrade (81f4017buk)

2021-03-30, 9:00 AM

I'm looking to upgrade the RAM on my ideapad from 8GB, and I'm finding conflicting information as to how much I can actually add. 

A bit of googling suggests that there's one slot of 4GB that can be upgraded, but the max limit is either 16GB or 8GB for this slot (bringing it up to 20GB/12GB).

Which would be the best option?

Hi geejaytee,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


That is correct. According to the PSREF documentation for this device (81F4017BUK), this device has the following memory support:


12GB max / 2133MHz or 2400MHz DDR4, 4GB soldered to systemboard,
one DDR4 SO-DIMM socket, dual-channel capable.


The memory configuration of the device is as follows:  4GB Soldered DDR4-2400 + 4GB SO-DIMM DDR4-2400

So you have one 4GB soldered that you can not remove, and one 4 GB you can upgrade/replace with a 8GB memory stick for a total of 12 GB (Max).


Best Regards
