Lenovo Y530 with 2x 32GB DIMMs

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Officially the Y530 only supports up to 16GB DIMMs but the i7-8750H I have supports up to 64GB of RAM, so in theory it should support 2x32GB DIMMs? Is there any reason why this wouldn't work other than it not being officially validated?

I mean why not...? Sometimes you don't need a reason!

If for some odd reason you need 64gb of RAM, it would probably just be easier to build a desktop. But just FYI, I have 32gb of RAM (I had that much lying around so I figured why not), and I never exceed 16gb of memory usage, even if I have a 100 chrome tabs open. You don't need so much memory.
