Which RAM brand for Lenovo Flex 2 15?

Hi everyone!

I am looking for ram to upgrade my lenovo flex 2 15 which has only 4 gb of ram and it's so so slow. I have found on the forums information about ram upgrade that it can be done. I have free slot avaialable. I have found in the manuals that it can handle only 1600 mhz speed.

 

I am not sure which brand I am supposed to buy.. I have found Crucial RAM 8GB DDR3 1600 MT/s CL11 SODIMM 204pin and judging on informations from my system info software it is compatible with my system.  What do you think?

Hi LeiceQ,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

The hardware manual for your system does have ram listing of OEM certified ram.

In cases when you need to get third party ram for upgrade, just make sure that it shares the same specification (DDR3L low voltage(1333MHz/1600MHz) SODIMM × 2) and review return options.

 

This discussion would further answer your query on your planned upgrade.

 

Regards

Do i have to buy ram module with 1.35 & 1.5 V or just the one with 1.35 V like the ram modules from the link you provided?

Hi LeiceQ,

 

DDR3L low voltage 1.35V is usually backward compatible with 1.5V.

So these two would be a fit
Crucial RAM 8GB DDR3 1600 MT/s (PC3-12800) CL11 SODIMM 204pin 1.35V/1.5V

 

Kingston 8GB 1600MHz 8192 MB DDR3
1600 MhZ
1.35 V
CL11

Hi LeiceQ,

 

Either of the two should work.

Just have to pick one with a good return option and have closer specification to the original ram inplace.
