DDR3 Ideapad Y430

2009-03-03, 3:38 AM

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

Solved! See the solution

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

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.
