I want to upgrade my ram and I need your help!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey,
I don't know if this is the right place to post it, but I'm a totally noob at tuning Laptop's and I need your help.

So I have a Lenovo z570 with a Windows 7 Home Premium System.
The Laptop came with a Intel Core 2670QM, a GeForce GT 540M, a Mainboard is called Sandy Bridge and 4GB Ram.

I want to upgrade my Laptop so it's faster and to have a better gaming experience for games like GW2.
And as i know games like gw2 use alot of ram, so i want to buy some more.
But how much and which ram can i use with this System setup ?
Can i buy 2x8gb or should i only buy another 4gb ram? (One Slot is free)
Is my Ramaxel ram compatible with a Samsung/Kingston ram ?

Below you can see some images i've made with CPU Z and a image of the Ramaxel ram. CPU Z Images (Click to show)





I hope you can help me out and thank you in advance for your reply!

The maximum amount of RAM the z570 MB can handle is 8GB. Here are the specs:

  • Maximum 8GB of RAM
  • PC3-10600 (1333 MHz) DDR3, non-parity
  • 2x 204-pin SODIMM sockets

So you can buy one additional 4GB SODIMM. Generally, it's best only to run RAM sticks that match, so if you can't find another Ramaxel stick with the same speed and timings as the one you have, you should just buy a 2x 4GB kit, such as any of these.
