Lenovo ideapad Y700-15ACZ - M.2 SSD Upgrade

Q: Lenovo ideapad Y700-15ACZ - M.2 SSD Upgrade

Hello everybody! I am interested in buying the new Gaming Laptop Lenovo ideapad Y700-15ACZ in the TOP version with FX-8800P and 4GB R9-M385X. As I have seen, first offers come only having the 1TB WD slim hdd. So time to find out which will be the best M.2 SSD to add nearby. For this need to clarify first if the M.2 port is connected to the SATA III of the FX-8800P's internal southbridge only or if it has connection to PCIe lanes. The HMM https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad_y700-15acz_hmm_201508.pdf tells on page 26 there is PCI Express Gen3 and SATA Gen3. For the hdd is written SATA III as note and for the ssd it is NGFF which means the same like you write M.2, so it is unclear. Btw - there are NO DDR4 ports on that model yet. On page 64 you find some oem M.2 ssd models that Lenovo offers to add. Those are SATA3 models like LiteOn CV-1 and Samsung PM871 with keys for "B+M". But this also doesn't mean anything more than might be badder choices. Have a look at the mainboard on page 48. You can see that the M.2 connector has only key M (right side) which means PCIe 3.0 (cpu) + SATA whereas key B (left side) would mean PCIe 2.0 (southbridge) + SATA. That M key port would allow to put in ssd cards like the Samsung SM951MZ-HPV (AHCI) model which might be the fastest using AHCI+PCIe or even the newest model Samsung SSD 950 pro which uses PCIe 3.0+NVMe only. But if there exists only a SATA III connection, the key should be "B only" instead of "M only" or "B+M" to prevent mistake by the user. Or am I wrong? Once we know this, let's talk about the protocol that can be used. For the hdd there is IDE and AHCI meaning the M.2 should at least support AHCI. A ssd like the Samsung SM951MZ-HPV (AHCI) which support both PCIe + AHCI would be a good or maybe better choice than just a SATA III / AHCI only model. But in case of no PCIe lanes could be used this would be wasting money and a better choice would be a ssd like the Samsung EVO 850 or other good models. Dear engineers of that great Laptop (or users who already tried out): please help on this. Thanks in advance! I am sure these questions other new owners will face very soon, too. So this is important.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi I bought a Lenovo laptop about a year and a half ago the Ideapad 500-15ACZ and I have gotten attached to it due to its great performance and reliability. The thing is that this model doesn?t have a dedicated video card which makes almost impossible even launching most of the newest games. I was wondering, its there?s any way to upgrade my laptop or is it better to just sell it and buy a new one.

Hey everyone I bought this same laptop and I am having the same issues that where discussed here I have the fx8800p model with r9 M385x.  Heatup to 80-85c then throttles hard loosing ~10fps  This is copied from that post which discribes what issues Im encountering http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/ideapad-y700-15acz-review.783192/    "Theoretically the performance is very good with framerates between 41 and 47 fps (~43 avg) but after 20 minutes i experienced heavy frame drops (last screenshot). Those are caused by the CPU that throttles down to 1,4 GHz for a few seconds and thus makes the game unplayable. No tools i checked would show the CPU temps so it is hard to say what the cause is. The GPU reaches 85 degree max. and this seems to be the point where the system starts to throttle and even GPU clock speeds are lower than they should (700 - 900 MHz)." I Would love to use this laptop to game on as it does give good proformance but as the cooling setup doesnt not seem up to the task.  Also this is what Im seeing.  I have yet to see the r9m385x run at 1000mhz ever and the memory is always at 1200mhz not the 1500mhz amd says it can be used at.  I really dont understand how this product can come out with such heat issues. Im seeing temps when gaming around 80-85c and up to 92c which is scary for me. I even have a cooling pad that doesnt seem to do much.  But regardless very poor cooling and I cannot... Read more

In my first post i posted about y700ACZ throttle. it was very serious throttle from 3.4ghz to 1.3ghz while playing games. To FIX this follow my words. 1.Its not the gpu or the apu that is throttling nor any other hardware flaw. 2.Its the AIR intake vent. TO [email protected] remove the hood and look upside down there you will see a cloth like fiber cloth covering the vent THATS the main reason of throttling. 3.remove the cloth carefully leave it open and run any of your game.look  at the cpu in task manager 4. i played assassin creed syndicate for 1 hour and was no throttle even the gpu temperature was @60-65c 5.there are some lag in games though which is barely seen but what i think is its bcuz of 15w TDP !! but thats ok not an issue 6.ALSO I RUN HEAVEN BENCHMARK AND @EXTREME SETTINGS I GOT MIN 20FPS AND MAX 45FPS 7.BUT FIRST OF ALL DO CLEAN THE FANS AND ALL OTHER PARTS. SO CONCLUSION THE MAIN CAUSE IS THE DESIGN FLAW AND ITS LENOVO'S FAULT NOT AMD SO AMD !!ROCKS!! SUPERB HARDWARE. CASE CLOSED.........

Hi chura78 ,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Here is a similar discussion that may help you.
As there are a lot of cloners around, you may try each at which ever works for you the best.
 
Do not delete or change the original drive yet until you have verified that the cloned drive works as expected after multiple restart and cold boots.
 
I hope this helps answer your query.

Pretty much what it says in the title.  I have recently been needing to use my Notebook for extended periods of time, and I had found that, despite the laptop reconizing that the charging cord is in, it fails to charge while in use and only charges when the computer is hibernating or when then laptop shuts down. I've taken a look at the battery settings, including Conservation Mode which seems to cause this type of problem, but I've had little to no luck fixing to problem. I would really appreciate if someone could give me some advice on how to fix the issue, as it is getting in the way of my work having to use it for only an hour, then have it charge for an hour.

Just curious, I've read a lot about the throttling issue with these laptops, and I've even removed the dust guard which has helped a little, but does anyone know of any third party software to control the fan speeds that's verified working with the Y700-15ACZ? I'm a huge gamer and I don't care about fan noise, on my desktop the GPU fan is usually at 100% while gaming which is quite loud, even bought a externel fan for this thing and it's not enough, gaming performance is lousy due to heat, and I also complete SETI projects regularly, not a fan of my GPU constantly being at or above 80c thanks for any help.

Go to power options->change plan settings->change advanced power settings->Processor management->set minimum and maximum processor state to 100 %......... Even if it did not solve u might have to consider installing AMD Overdrive(Like Intel XTU) and change the processor multiplier of all cores to your specific clock frequency......

Hi all Please some advise. I have the Y700-15ACZ (FX-8800P, M385X 4GB). While gaming, the GPU clocks go down to 300MHZ from time to time (about every 2-3 seconds). I don't see why - the TDP remains the same according to HWInfo and the temps are quite ok.I even used MSI Afterburner and downclocked the GPU to 0.5GHZ/1GHZ (core/memory) which is a lot lower and it still happens (and TDP/temps are much lower too). Any clue? I've tried several drivers from Lenovo and from AMD and nothing helps. The performance is actually quite ok, except these jumps in clocks..Thanks

Hello all, I recently bought a Lenovo Y700 15ACZ(the AMD model of this laptop which sports the AMD FX APU with the R7 integrated graphics and the R9 M385x discrete/dedicated graphics). Anyway, I recently installed a fresh copy of Windows 10, I installed my games. They all run but I can't tell if they use the r7 or r9. So for example, I have everything set in the AMD settings to use the "High Performance" I have also adjusted the power settings to "maximize performance as well. The device driver versions on the r7 graphics and r9 graphics are currently matching. So anyway....I go to launch a game(GTA 5 in particular since I can easily see how much graphics memory is available...this game was set to use the high performance graphics) anyway, I ran the game and went to the settings to adjust the graphics settings....it showed I only have 1024MB graphics(integrated....since the r9 has 4096mb) How do I get games to use the R9 properly or how can I tell if they are. Any help appreciated! My first install of Windows I got the drivers from AMD's autodetect and got everything up to the latest, I reinstalled(for a few reasons) and now have the drivers in from Lenovo, BIOS is also up to date and set to use discrete(instead of UMA). Looking forward to replies from other y700 owners, thanks!

Hey everybody, this is for all of you that bought the Lenovo Y700 15ACZ gaming laptop with Amd FX 8800P processor and are having an issue with the CPU throttling.  I bought this laptop a little over a month ago, and right out of the box, it didn't perform as it should.  It throttled down from the full 3.4ghz to 1.3, and I encountered a huge drop in my framerate while gaming.  I would start a game like Battlefield 4 or Farcry 3 and have pretty good framerates for a laptop, something around 35-40, but after playing for a while I would see my frames go down in the teens.  I knew there had to be a problem, and a solution.  I've done a ton of research on it from the time I got it until now, and I finally have the answer, thanks to numerous posts on the Lenovo community.  It takes quite a few alterations, but it helps, I promise. First, you need to make sure that all of your settings are set to High Performance.  Do this by going into your Radeon Settings and clicking Preferences on the bottom.  Click Radeon Additional Settings and in the Catalyst Control Center make sure that anything you can change to performance is set to that.  High Performance is what you want, so when you open a game it will switch over to your dedicated GPU, which in this case is a Radeon R9 M385X.  One other thing I noticed is that Catalyst Control Center takes up roughly a steady 30% of your CPU us...

Hello! I have a Lenovo Y700 15ACZ Gaming Laptop with 8GB DDR3 RAM that I recently upgraded to 12GB DDR3. A few months before I upgraded (when I check task manager) it reports that my RAM speed is 800 MHz i instead of the 1600 MHz speed advertised! So, I thought upgrading the RAM, as I said, would fix the issue. BUT it didn 't. So, what I just want to know is, if my RAM is underclocked does that mean my computer is dying? I'm perfectly fine with the underclocked speed, as it doesn't affect my gaming performance. I just want to put an end to this mystery, though. So, any help would be appreciated!Thanks! :-)

I decided to invest in a new laptop as my other one had fallen on the ground, and lately for the past two month's all I've been having with it was troubles. Ther first problem I had was with the external microphone I used (Blue Yeti) It wouldn't detect or something and eventually made my speakers and microphone stop working all together. With no clue on how to fix it I ended up factory resetting my product. Everything's been fine with this problem, but if you have a fix to it if it arrises again then that'd be helpful.
 
Just yesterday I had a problem with my laptop where I was using it and the screen suddenly went black, I restarted it and the LENOVO loading screen came up only to have it stuck on the screen with a loading symbol and my curser.

I've tried searching everywhere but can't really find it; found the nvidia and reltek stuff but that's it. Secondly, the black screen of death; this was something that happened to me the very first time i opened the laptop, and the second time after i reloaded it.

I've tried looking for it here on the forum, but all the instructions are for windows 7 or maybe 8, nothing for windows 10 (the instructions for windows 7 can't apply to windows 10 because the options aren't the same).

I recently bought a Lenovo Ideapad Y700 and I was wondering 3 things. The first is many sockets do the RAM and the SSD have? Also, am I able to have a SSD and a Hardrive together? The second thing is what is the max RAM and storage the laptop can have? Lastly, will upgrading the RAM and SSD void my warranty? Thank you to anyone who can help.

Does anyone have any problem on playing Blade and Soul with Ideapad Y700 (Intel Core i5-6300HQ, 8GB, 1TB HDD + 128GB SSD, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M, Windows 10)? I do not much problem playing other games (Tera, Aion, NFS, and etc) on this laptop but this is the only game that I have trouble playing. I personally, do like this laptop and it is value gaming laptop, so I should not expect much from it. But it runs other games perfectly... I tried changing the Nvidia 3d setting to high performance but I still get low FPS (30~40), even with the lowest setting.  Is this laptop not capable of playing this game or what is the problem? If you have any solution, please share with me.
