The most ram you can use is 16gb 1600mhz. It's limited by the CPU, and also by the DIMM slots. Its impossible to find 32gb in 16x2 SODIMM. But 16gb (8x2) is plenty Smiley Tongue.

P.S. Use 2 slots if possible, dual band is faster than single.
Y510p: i7 4700MQ (Overclocked to 3.6GHz), SLI GT 755M (Each Overclocked 111MHz), Corsair Vengeance 16GB 2133MHz, Samsung 850 Pro 256GB, MyDigitalSSD SuperBoot 128GB, Intel Wireless-AC 7260, Windows 10 Home
Dell XPS 13 (2015): i5 5200U, Intel HD 5500, 4GB 1600MHz, 128GB Samsung M.2 SSD, 802.11ac WLAN, Windows 10 Home (School Laptop)

Welcome to the Lenovo Community behdaad !


The Y50-70 uses only DDR3L memory per the specifications on page #26 of your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual.   Here is a link to that manual......


For an additional reference, please visit the link below for what one on-line retailer recommends for memory upgrades in the Y50-70......
