What type of RAM is OEM in my Lenovo Y50-70 4k UHD *not touch*

Hello,

 

I can't find what type of ram comes standard inside of my Lenovo Y50-70 4k UHD - no touch. I would like to upgrade and from what I have read it's best to stick with the same brands as whatever came in the machine. I'm by no means a hardware type of guy so I know very little when it comes to this other than I want to go from 8gb to 16gb. Also from my understanding the maximum supported RAM is 16gb right?

Hi maxshuty,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Yes, maximum RAM supported is 16GB.

 

Specifications declared from your hardware manual for this model :

DDR3L-1,600 MHz SODIMM × 2 (max 16 GB) 

 

You have 2 slots for the RAM so 2 pieces of 8 GB DDR3 L (low voltage) 1,600 MHz SODIMM would work best for your machine.

 

OEM certified RAM here on page 91 item 11 :

 

11 RAM, Hyn HMT41GS6AFR8A-PB DDR3L 1600 8GB Part Number: 11201301 
11 RAM, SK HMT41GS6BFR8A-PB/RD 8GB DDR3L 1600 Part Number: 11202707
11 RAM, M471B1G73DB0-YK0 25nm 8GB DDR3L 1600 Part Number: 11202082
11 RAM, RMT3160ME68FAF-1600 8GB DDR3L 1600 Part Number: 11202450
11 RAM, Mic MT16KTF1G64HZ-1G6E1 DDR3L 1600 8GB Part Number: 11201304

 

Page 46 of the manual describes the steps on replacing the memory.

 

Hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

If I am replacing all the memory in a machine, I get the same brand.  If I am adding a stick, I get anything compatible.  I have never found any measurable difference.

If you are looking to find the exact brand name, you can use a free utility called RAMMon by PassMark to show you all the details about the current ram, including the brand name..   

 

It is not really nescessary to match the exact brand, but matching the same speeds, and installing in pairs (2x4GB or 2x8GB etc.) is considered a good idea.

 

The Y50 psref states the following.

16GB max / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, non-parity, dual-channel capable, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets

 

Good luck, 

 

 

And we're back...
