Max Ram on thinkcentre edge 72

Hello,

I have the ThinkCentre Edge 72 Desktop with Intel i5.

How many RAM can I plug in the two slots?

I have read somewhere that the maximum Ram is 16 GB. Is this true and means it 2x8GB or 2x16GB?

Wich manufactors are best for this motherboard?

 

Regards

Andreas

If the max is 16 GB, and you have 2 slots, then it's 2x 8 GB.  

 

I'm working on an upgrade thread.   After you find memory for your system on Kingston and Crucial (and Lenovo) let us know if you have further questions.  

 


It is advisable to update your BIOS before a hardware upgrade or new OS version install, to ensure you have maximum hardware support and fixes.

 

Memory:
For maximum system performance, you want to keep maximum memory utilization under 70% Use Windows 'Task Manager' to view your memory utilization. (Further performance to be had with 'dual-channel' mode -- identical spec modules installed in pairs.)


If you do not wish to buy memory from Lenovo, both Kingston and Crucial have 'System Specific' memory for your system that is OEM equivalent and guaranteed compatible. Memory timings must match what the BIOS expects for the system to recognize it, generic memory sometimes doesn't work. Some older system types (eg. some models of M58), require a BIOS update to support 4 GB modules.


Use your system's Hardware Maintenance Manual for instructions on how to upgrade the memory. After making any memory change, run 2 passes of MemTest86 to ensure all is well.
