DDR3 Ideapad Y430

Hi,

 

I have just purchased a Lenovo Y430 IdeaPad. I am 90% sure it is using the Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset... This chipset Supports DDR3 at 1066mhz.. I was wondering if it would support DDR3 if so what PC-XXXX as there is not much documentation on what types of ram and speeds this machine will support

Re: DDR3 Ideapad Y430

The IdeaPad laptops with DDR3 memory are using PC-8500. If your laptop didn't come with DDR3, then you won't be able to utilize DDR3 memory. A DDR3 memory module is not backwards compatible with a DDR2 slot. DDR2 memory utilizes a 200-pin SODIMM slot while DDR3 utilizes a 204-pin

Hi,

Re: DDR3 Ideapad Y430

I think we here have gotten a misstake... There is supported maximum 8GB DDR3 per slot and the mainboard of Lenovo Y430 got 2 slot of RAM, it mean that you can install 16GB RAM maximum dual channel.
