Lenovo yoga 720 15 inch RAM Upgrade

I want to buy the Lenovo Yoga 720 15 inch the model is 80X7003HIV, with 512 ssd, 8 gb RAM, i5 7300HQ and GTX 1050 4 GB. My question is: can the RAM be upgraded? And if so which RAM stick should I buy that will be compatible with that laptop, and does adding ram remove the warranty?

Hi IdanLo,

Warm Greetings & welcome to Lenovo Community, happy to have you here.

As I understand that you have query related to Memory upgrade for Yoga 720

According to psref this model has one SODIMM slot and maximum memory it can handle is 16GB/ 2133MHz DDR4. 

Upgrading Memory will not impact the warranty of your system unless you are damaging the product while doing so.

 

I hope the above information helped you.

Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

 

Regards,
Prabhansh

Additional information:

16GB max / 2133MHz DDR4,
8GB soldered to systemboard, one 260-pin SO-DIMM socket

 

Thus you could add a 8GB stick for a total of 16GB.  

OEM memory page 63, item 8.

What about the 80X7006KUS model, can I add additional 8 gigs of memory to it without damaging the warranty?

As stated via psref, 8gb soldered. 1 slot. add 8GB.  Any model of machine. If you mess the machine up during Ram install, warranty no cover. Two forums users have explained this item as best we can.

No, installing RAM will not void your warranty.

 

The Yoga 720 15" comes with 2400MHz RAM actually, though it does run at 2133MHz.

 

If someone makes a slimmer 16GB stick ever, it might fit in the Yoga and you'd have 24GB total.

Is the 16GB SODIMM thicker than the 8GB SODIMM stick?  They look exactly the same size on the Crucial website.

 

Also, is it bad to mix uneven size memory in a duall channel?

 

Thanks in advance for any insight!

Re: Lenovo yoga 720 15 inch RAM Upgrade

I'm running on my yoga 720 15 with an additional 16gb ram module, so I have 24gb ram.

I can't say if something will went wrong, I need more ram for testing systems on vm's so ram is important for me.

My system runs perfectly, best Regards

I'm running with this module:

https://www.amazon.de/KINGSTON-2666MHz-SODIMM-HyperX-Impact/dp/B01N7K4DV4/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=150...

Hyper-X 16GB DDR4 sodimm. The system will cut the frequency to 2133mhz.
