Welcome to the Community Forums.
As per general RAM specification from the hardware manual:
1,600 MHz SODIMM × 1 (max 8 GB)
Similar to the recommend M471B1G73EB0-YK0 Samsung:
8GB 2Rx8 1G x 64-Bit PC3L-12800 CL11 204-Pin SODIMM specifications
Yoga 500 AKA Flex 3-1470
8GB max / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, one 204-pin SO-DIMM socket
OEM recommended RAM here on page 85 item 9 of the manual.
In purchasing from other resellers like Crucial or Amazon, best to also check the return option although as long as the specifications are the same, it is not often that it won't work. Low voltage compatibility is highly recommended 1.35V as your suggested part also does.
Hope this help answer your query.

Checking on the specification in your pick with Kingston 8GB RAM as per detail specs:
KVR16LS11/8 8GB 2Rx8 1G x 64-Bit PC3L-12800 CL11 204-Pin SODIMM
"1G x 64-bit (8GB) DDR3L-1600 CL11 SDRAM (Synchronous DRAM), 2Rx8, low voltage, memory module, based on sixteen 512M x 8-bit FBGA components. The SPD is programmed to JEDEC standard latency DDR3-1600 timing of 11-11-11 at 1.35V or 1.5V "
This does show same specifications requirements of the Yoga 500 14 that this should work.
Technically, those mention on the hardware manual FRU list is those that have been tested and certified to work.

I should have stated Kingston Value ram causes issues.
I use Crucial.
Whatever you choose, money back guarantee is required as noted by Spidey101.
Yes Crucial also offers dual voltage memory. Try to select a stick which matches your machines memory voltage, which is 1.35V and a NON dual voltage stick, if possible.
Beep Beep at boot up time? Where is the return depot(place of purchase}?
Up the street, a country aways, etc?

I’m also looking for 8GB RAM for the Yoga 500-14IBD of my son. Unfortunately I’m not that expert in HW.
Try to understand a little this thread, I found these two options by Crucial:
My first question is: the different speed between the two models is realy appreciable or the 1866 is just a waste of extra money?
Than ... I found a couple of cheaper potential options:
A) Patriot Signature Line PSD38G16002S
B) Timetec Hynix IC 8GB DDR3L 1600MHz PC3-12800 Unbuffered Non-ECC 1.35V CL11 2Rx8 Dual Rank 204 Pin SODIMMA) Patriot Signature Line PSD38G16002S
Are those two compatible with my Yoga? If I understood a little of the discussion, the right voltage must be 1,35, right? If this is the case, option A) should not be ok.
Thanks a lot in advance.
