Hi Yudi,

 

CompuRAM says about the Y470 series...

"This system can be upgraded to max. 16GB memory. There are 2 memory slots"

Hello , 

 

I dont think any ideapad machine support 16 GB ram. You can see all the type model of y470p and y470 below.  Please check the CPU type below and identify the maximum memory. You can see processor type using the path Control Panel\System and Security\System.

 

 

i3-2310M 2.10 2GBx2 
i5-2410M 2.30 2.90 2GBx2 
i5-2410M 2.30 2.90 2GBx2 

i7-2630QM 2.00 2.90 4GBx2 
i7-2630QM 2.00 2.90 4GBx2 
i3-2330M 2.20 4GBx1 
i7-2670QM 2.20 3.10 4GBx2 
i7-2670QM 2.20 3.10 4GBx2 
i5-2430M 2.40 3.00 4GBx1 
i7-2670QM 2.20 3.10 4GBx2 
i7-2670QM 2.20 3.10 4GBx2

Sorry for being late to the party -

 

Not sure about different configurations but I can confirm that I was able to install 16GB of RAM in my 8GB-limit Y470 (i7-2670QM & nVIDIA GeForce) - just brought my laptop to Fry's and tried it right there. I think the memory controller for that CPU can handle it and I wouldn't think the video card would affect things.

 

Good luck.

 

Now if I could just find a bios so my CPU would actually clock to 3.1GHz instead of only 2.2... I'm a little chicken to install a BIOS found on the internet.

The 2670QM on my Y470 automatically overclocks to 3.1 GHz when an application requires maximum processor state such as Prime95.

My idePad z500 supports 16 GB Ram upgrade, according to Lenovo themselves, so...
