Lenovo Ideapad L340 Gaming - Maximum Memory

2020-05-23, 6:41 AM

Hi!

 

My laptop is Lenovo Ideapad L340 Gaming 15IRH, with 4gb soldered memory and a 4gb SODIMM in the memory slot. Upon checking the technical specifications, it seems that the maximum memory for this laptop is 16gb. 

 

Does it mean total maximum memory (4gb soldered + size of ram in memory slot) or the maximum memory card that I can put in the memory slot?

 

 

Thank you in Advance!

Hi jpresuello07,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Product specification is 16GB max offering / 2400MHz DDR4, optional 4GB memory soldered to systemboard, one DDR4 SO-DIMM socket.

 

Keyword here is max offering since OEM variants as follows as OEM guaranteed - tested configurations.

 

8GB = 0GB onboard + 8GB SO-DIMM

16GB = 0GB onboard + 16GB SO-DIMM

12GB = 4G onboard + 8GB SO-DIMM

4GB = 4GB onboard

8GB = 4GB onboard + 4GB SO-DIMM 

 

Other resellers offers total 20GB with a  soldered 4GB plus 16GB as shown here.

 

You can safely stay with OEM recommedndation of 4GB soldered plus 8GB DDR4 for total of 12GB.

If you really need more than 12GB, then you may want to try adding 16GB instead with reseller guarantee.

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

Hi! Thank you for your answer. It's clear to me now on how it works. If I go for the additional 16gb ram, is there a possibility that it incur any physical damage in my laptop? Also, will there be any conflict with the GPU and the CPU? Thank you

Hi jpresuello07,

 

Greetings.

 

Some would claim overheating on the ram contacts after 2-3 years.

 

Personally, any gadgets that is extensively used over pro;omged time would eventually break.

 

So basically, if there is really a need then it is something you can consider else try consider costing over usage.

 

Regards

Okay will take note of that.

 

I do have another question. The store that I bought the laptop from, installed another memory module, which was a Kingston DDR4 4gb 2666 MHz, but it says in the product specifications that the laptop's soldered memory is 1x 4GB DDR4 2133 MHz. Will it still be efficient if I replace the 4gb memory module into an 8gb memory module with a frequency of 2666 MHz or should I go with an 8gb memory module with a frequency of 2133 MHz?

 

The reason I asked this is that ideally, the most efficient combination of ram is that it should have the same size, same frequency, same brand, to maximize the dual channel mode. In the case of this laptop, the 4gb soldered memory can't be replaced (as it is fixed).

max support for this laptop is actually 36gb....but frequency is 2400.. even if you install 2666 frequency stick you will get 2400 speed....the information that this laptop has 16gb or 20gb max ram support is totally wrong.....this laptop support upto 32gb for non soldered ram or 36gb for soldered 4gb ram....so if you need more ram just go and buy 2400 32gb single stick....and if you installed a 32 gn stick ...post screenshot of that..so orther can get help

thank you for the info on this. Will there be an effect in the performance, especially that the dual channel mode will only work for 8gb ram (4gb soldered, 4gb for the memory stick in the memory slot), and the remaining ram in the memory stick will work in single channel?
