Hi !

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums.

 

The system clocks will depend on the processor memory controller, some processor can hold up to 2400MHz only for DDR4 memory. Refer to this link from Intel. Hence, if you'll purchase a DDR4 memory with 3200MHz the system will down clock it to 2400MHz specially if your Proccessor is Intel® Core™ i7-8550U.

Hope these helps.

Thanks for the information. The machine has an i5-8250U processor. Found that it only supports up to 2400MHz. Wondering if it causes any problems? After upgrading the RAM, the fan has a lot of noise. Have updated everything through Lenovo Vantage and Windows Update.
