Re: Ideapad flex 14 memory upgrade

Hi Budir79 , 


Welcome to the Community Forums. 


There are times that added ram may contibute to additional heat as common for overclocked systems as it request the CPU and board for additional requirements . Same reason why most OEM set recommended standards for functionality and maintainance . 


Would you have the machine type model specific to your machine located from the sticker or to check it from here (keep SN confidential) . 


You may also get recommended part number from the FRU listing  by downloading the hardware manual from the documentation tab of the support site. This would also inform the specifications for your system and max ram.


Example: for Lenovo Flex 14/Flex 14D/Flex 15/Flex 15D :

RAM specifications : DDR3L-1600 8 GB SODIMM × 1  (page27) (page 71-72 item 14 for recommended 8GB DDR3L)

Part number : 11202080 DDR3L 1600 8GB M471B1G73QH0-YK0 

Part number : 11201301 DDR3L 1600 8GB HMT41GS6AFR8A-PB 8GB DDR3L 1600

Part number : 11201514 DDR3L 1600 8GB SM322NW08IAF 8GB DDR3L 1600

Part number : 11201304 DDR3L 1600 8GB MT16KTF1G64HZ-1G6E1 8GB DDR3L 1600

Hope this helped answer your query.
