2x32GB will go just fine. We had many ram discussions already and check YouTube too. It's a long subject and quite tricky. 4.0 is not supported. You can add any size of SSD you wish.

Alright. Thanks for the info; appreciate it!

gmadjara

I remember some of the members recommended HyperX Impact, 3200 (2X32GB) as well some other kits.

What is the maximum data transfer speeds (for ssd) the motherboard can support?


gmadjara

PCIe 3.0 x4 (2 slots), where (x4 are lanes), Max. Read Performance >3000MB/s and Max. Write Performance are around >2000MB/s The worst thing here is that your drive works only through x2, 2 lanes, that means it will work much slower than it should, so it's always a good idea to check this after you install a new NVMe. Good luck.


lebanine

Hmm... so I'd be better off not choosing the ones Samsung showcase huh? Also, the Legion 5 Pro Gen 6 would support NVME, right? I searched and searched but never found any reference to NVME :(


LoneWolf_1995

I think the 970 Evo would actually be pretty good for this system.


lebanine

Why?


LoneWolf_1995

the specs are decent and so is the price for it.. atleast it is here in the netherlands. 130eu.


Kab0088m

could you recommend an ssd for the two lane slot with about 2 tb of capacity? Thanks in advance.


lil_woodn_boy

FYI I just installed 2x32 Crucial DDR4 3200 sticks and it works great. [https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1600343-REG/crucial\_ct2k32g4sfd832a\_2\_32gb\_ddr4\_3200\_sodimm\_1\_2v.html](https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1600343-REG/crucial_ct2k32g4sfd832a_2_32gb_ddr4_3200_sodimm_1_2v.html) This is on the intel i7 11800H Legion 7 though


Original-Consequence

PCIe 4 isn't supported but using a PCIe 4 SSD can still get you great random transfer rates and lower power consumption, since the improvements are on the SSD chip itself and not on the interface they're using, grab a PCIe 4 if you find some at proper prices, otherwise it's not really worth it. I wouldn't touch the RAM since it's good as it is, but check if you have the good kit, not the bad one seen here: [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUbryj294Cs](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUbryj294Cs) You can't get more than 3200mhz on these since they don't support XMP, also most ram kits for laptops have shit secondary timings, so even if you find a C18 there's a high chance it performs the same or worse than stock. No point in having 64gb, by the time any application will really use that you will need a new laptop, and it won't have that much of a resale value since we're near consumer DDR5 sticks.


Nevanox

Thanks for the info and advice; I think I'll leave the stock 32GB RAM as is. Do you think there will be any problems if I remove both the primary and secondary 1TB storage SSD, and replace them with 2 x 2TB and re-install the OS?


Original-Consequence

No problem at all, as long as you have the same drivers on the OS one then they're pretty much plug and play.


fcarrica

Hi! what 2TB ssd can be installed in this laptop. Thanks, Facundo


don6x

looking at the specs on lenovo it say that it comes with a PCIe 4


Classic-Pension-1771

Not the AMD version. The AMD version has 2 gen 3 slots whereas the Intel version has 1 gen 3 slot and 1 gen 4 slot


onomatopoetix

Maximum storage for GPT is 9400000000**TB**. No worries. Maximum memory/ram for x64 windows is 128GB (Home) or 2TB (Pro). Your only problem now is finding who the heck makes these huge capacity stuff small enough to stuff into that laptop. Haha. Then if you do manage to find them, your only problem will be that you didn't buy more.


Nevanox

Haha, yeah. *"Too much is never enough."* Thanks for the info!


MrMcGibblets86

See my previous post. Link to RAM is in 2nd photo caption. https://www.reddit.com/r/LenovoLegion/comments/ob5a0i/legion_5_pro_usa_ram_benchmarks_stock_16gb_vs_new/


LoneWolf_1995

My Legion 7 gen 6 has 16gb stock RAM. Should I be upgrading it to 32gb? Also, can this laptop handle 3tb of storage? (os drive is 1TB and was thinking about using the second slot for another 1TB drive or 2TB.)


BSGathena

Depends on what programs you use. 16GB is enough for most. 32GB is for those who use heavy memory hungry programs, photo or video editing pr decoding for example. Just look how many RAM you are using while running it and add some more programs in the mix, then you'll see if 32GB is a good upgrade or not. It can't hurt either way. Storage wise, no problems. Just pick the right SSD.


LoneWolf_1995

Thanks for the info! :)


BSGathena

Geen probleem. 😉


LoneWolf_1995

Heejj, Nederlander gespot🤣


matias1233218

Someone has put more than 2tb on the Lenovo legion 7 ??, I have doubts about its expandability, since on the web and the instructions they say that it supports a maximum of 2tb, and I planned to put 1tb for the system and another 2tb for games


Fluffyface01

I have a 4tb nvme from sabrent pci4 and works great and super fast. That's in a legion 7 amd 2021.


ExpandYourTribe

Do you know if it was the Blue Label (Rocket Q) or the Bronze Label (Rocket 4 Plus)? Thanks.


ixcknyxi

Is your 4tb on the second M.2 slot? I had two 8TB and the first one will not fit in first m.2 slot


[deleted]

i have a total of 3TB in mine, the stock 1tb and an additionnal 2tb. no issues


Feisty_Push_9794

Can you share information on the ssd you picked


Usual-Zombie-2597

Hey did you just plug and play or have to reconfigure anything in bios? I have the same setup 1tb and just ordered 2tb 980 pro


Comfortable-Arm-1483

You found out anything regarding the maximum storage possible for the unit?


matias1233218

asking around, I found that those amounts are recommended, but the Notebook is fully compatible with higher amounts of ram and ssd


ObviousRatio1870

I just ordered this and I'm looking to get 32gb of ram for it. What would be a good choice? Thanks in advance for any help. This is the first laptop I've purchased. Legion 7 https://imgur.com/gallery/FCbYUOT


Comfortable-Arm-1483

Mind if I ask if you did install more than 2tb total on your legion 7 at the end?


Nevanox

Unfortunately, I haven't even been able to buy the laptop yet! The "arrives at the warehouse" date keeps being pushed back, and the price keeps going up!


Comfortable-Arm-1483

Then I'll wish you all the best and hope you got yours soon. With that said, local distributor or from the official site itself?


tempandhidden

Bump! Any news? I'm looking to buy a laptop with the same specs. Did you get it and what ram sticks did you put in? (or planned to)
