I have a Thinkpad L440 with 4GB of RAM.
I want to upgrade it and I have two questions:
1. Is it OK to add 8GB (so I will have 12GB in total) or it would be better to add 4GB in order to have two similar SODIMMs?
2. Are there any known incompatibilities for specific brands? I found two SODIMMs from Kingston (part numbers KVR16S11/8 and KVR16LS11/8) and one from Crucial (part number CT102464BF160B). All are clocked at 1600MHz.
Thanks in advance,
PS: I beleive that I can upgrade the RAM without voiding the warranty, can't I?

Welcome to Lenovo Community!
As per the query we understood that you are looking for Memory up-gradation for your ThinkPad L440.
Yes, you can install 8Gb RAM, but make sure you are having same memory bus speed. Please find the below FRU parts.
03X6655 - 2GB DDR3L 1600 SODIMM
03X6656 - 4GB DDR3L 1600 SODIMM
03X6657 - 8GB DDR3L 1600 SODIMM
Hope this helps.

Hi, I ordered KTL-TP3CL/8G, by seeing this chat. But afterwards I went to Kingston Website and searched, then it was showing another model i.e KCP3L16SD8/8). I have a Thinkpad L440, 4th gen i5(4GB RAM), clocked at 2.8 GHz. So I am confused.
