Adding RAM for Lenovo ThinkCentre M720q Tiny (10T7A002HC)

2019-05-16, 7:16 AM

Hi, I am planning to add more memory for ThinkCentre M720q, there are 2 slots avaliable and 1 is in used with 8GB installed. Can I add 1x16GB in slot 2 (total = 24 GB) ? Or I need to install the same size RAM in pairs: 2x 16GB (total 32GB)? Thank you.

Yes, you can add another 8 GB or 16 GB module.  With another 8 GB (providing it has the same specification in all respects as the existing module - meaning 'system specific' memory for this specific model from Crucial or Kingston Memory), it will run in "dual-channel" mode, which provides a slight performance advantage.  But that advantage is moot if you're any chance you'll use more than 16 GB.
