Upgrades for my A515-51G

R7vmcR7vmc Posts: 58Member Devotee
Hi,

I was thinking about speeding up my laptop and buy m.2 SSD with RAM upgrades too and repasting the CPU and GPU to get better temps so I have some questions

1- what kind of m.2 does A515-51G support? With product link pls

2- what is the maximum MHz for the RAM?

3- what is the best thermal paste and is there any videos or tutorials for repasting A515-51G?

Thanks

    Please check if your device already has a second SSD.
    This model supports 128GB , 256Gb SSD up to 2TB with 6.0Gbits/s Fast data transfer rate.
    This model has two M.2 Card, One for WiFi (half card) and One for SSD (full or half card)

    For thermal paste you can use Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut, Arctic MX-4 and IC Diamond.
    It is not recommended due to warranty complications
    Instead of re-pasting thermal paste, it is better to buy a cooler pad. When a thermal paste is the issue, more airflow won't help.

    Generally cooling pads only result in a few degrees of difference in temperature, passive or powered.  For the best results an angled cooler that allows greater air circulation to the air intake vents.  Even with high capacities powered coolers don't tend to add much to the equation.  If you opt for a powered cooler look for one with the highest volume of air (CFM) as is reasonably possibly, a single large fan is likely to be quieter than several smaller ones.
