Lenovo Ideapad 500-15ISK 80NT RAM upgrade

Hi everyone,


I want to upgrade memory on my laptop and would like to know if the below options will be supported? I currently have an 8GB single channel memory installed. As it's a lower speed (800MHz) I don't want to add another 8GB stick with 1333 or 1600MHz as it would be pointless as the cpu will use the lowest speed.  I want to get a faster dual channel 16GB (1600MHz). 


1. Kingston HyperX 16GB(2x8GB) DDR3L 1600MHz



2. Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3L 1600MHz CMSXC6GX3M2A1600C10

Your hardware manual specification would provide you details (page 26) for your ideapad 500-15ISK.

The compatible RAM are listed on page 89. The RAM you mentioned will also work with your laptop.
