Hi King Manga,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community!

 

As I understood that you are looking the information on system hardware up gradation on ThinkPad E545.

 

For ThinkPad E545 available processors are:

 

AMD A8-4500M processor (2 cores, 1.9GHz, 4MB cache)

Radeon HD 7640G, DDR3 memory controller (up to 1333MHz)

AMD 4C A10-5750M processor (4 cores, 2.5 GHz, 4MB cache)

                Radeon HD 8650G, DDR3 memory controller (up to 1333MHz)

AMD 4C A8-5550M processor (4 cores, 2.1 GHz, 4MB cache)

                Radeon HD 8550G, DDR3 memory controller (up to 1333MHz)

AMD 2C A6-5350M processor (2 cores, 2.9 GHz, 1MB cache)

                Radeon HD 8450G, DDR3 memory controller (up to 1333MHz)

 

And regarding the memory up gradation of Kingston’s HyperX, the system will support 16 Gb RAM and the specification should be DDR3 PC3-12800, DDR3 PC3-14900, DDR3 (non-ECC).

 

If the Kingston’s HyperX memory is available with above specification then it will support.

 

And for further assistance on the above up-gradation we request you to visit the nearby Lenovo authorized service center, so that they will verify and guide you further.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Best regards,

Hemanth Kumar
