I'm looking to upgrade my laptop standard 8GB generic brand RAM to something a bit better for intense gaming and video editing. I'm looking at Corsair Vengeance 16GB 1600MHz CAS 9, and also GSKILL Ripjaws (same speed and latency). Would either of these work in the laptop? The specs seem right, but I don't know if the BIOS will accept new memory.
Also looking at buying a Samsung 840 Pro 256GB SSD and a Western Digital 1TB My Passport Ultra external HDD. Any comments/advice?

I bought a Lenovo laptop. Model y510p with 4Gb of RAM. I would like to buy and install another 4 GB. Can I remove the bottom cover without fear of loss of warranty? Can you give me the parameters of mounted RAM? My computer: Lenovo Y510P (59395035) 4GB RAM.

Thank you for your response. During a telephone conversation Lenovo Support said that only authorized service can replace memory.. I hope that you're telling the truth, and the guarantee will stay active

The memory comes under CRU, Customer Replacable Unit, so as long as you use "Certified" memory, you should be fine.
Replacing a part is different than upgrading. I removed my DVD drive and put in the Ultrbay GPU, that didnt void the warranty (since it is certified by Lenovo ).
I believe the memory parts are clearly stated in Lenovo Manual for Y510p. I have been trying to search as well but here in US, the exact part I am looking for is around $100, so I will stay with 8GB RAM for some more time.
Also on Youtube, I have seen that the guy replaced his stock RAM with RipJaws, so I guess those should work fine as well. They are NOT certified in the manual.

Thanks. I saw the guy with the Ripjaws too, but I just wanted to make sure. I've ordered the RAM now, hope it works .
