Lenovo Y580 RAM upgrade

2012-11-22, 7:45 AM

My lenovo y580 has a 6gb ram and recently I ran the crucial system test to see how much ram I can upgrade to. It said that the max is 8gb(4gb each slot) is this true? Has any one upgraded theirs to 16gb?

Hi Z,

On 01-11-2013 Iordered an IdeaPad Y580 Laptop - 20998NU for $799 / 846.94 w/ TAX.

 

Ordered a RAM upgrade to 16gig from Amazon, a Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) Laptop Memory (CMSX16GX3M2A1600C10) for &83.98.

 

When it all arrives, I will install the ram and see how it goes!

 

I hope to post the results.

Do give us an update if you are able to make it work with 16gig of RAM cause that would really make things sweet...

 

Cheers... :smileyhappy:

Ideapad Y 580
Core i7 3630, 8Gb 1600Mhz, 1TB HDD + 32GB mSata SSD, 1920x1080.... BDRW.....
Win 7 for now ......... till Lenovo gives us Rapid Drive on Win 8 ;-)

I received the laptop on January 18th, 2013. That is a total of 8 days since ordered on 01-01-2013. Pretty fast delivery. I have not yet received my 16g ram update from amazon.com.

I installed the 16g ram (2 8 gigs), without a problem at all. It automatically regisered 16 gig. No more 8 gig! Now what to do with the 8 gig? The hardest part was pickig the ram, if you are not familiar with doing so, and also the little strange curly clips on the left and right of the laptop ram (how to pull them back when deinstalling old ram and reinstalling new ram). There is a video on youtube on how to remove and install ram on the y580, yet it is not an upgrade, but just showing you how to remove and instal the 8gig.

 

I hope soon to get a msata on whoich to instal Adobe publishing products. We will see how that goes.

 

Thanks, Pat.
