So ,I just bought a Lenovo y520 laptop , it has following specs:
Intel® Core™ i7-7700HQ Processor 2.8GHz - 6M Cache, up to 3.80 GHz
4GB DDR4 RAM
1TB SATA HDD
NVIDIA® GeForce GTX 1050 2GB GDDR5
15.6" FHD IPS Display
Windows 10 Home


So, my laptop has an empty slot
and i want to add another 8gb ram to make it 12gb ram in total,
(I checked the compatibility, this 8gb ram matches my laptop's ram frequency, volt and stuffs)

This laptop has only 2 ram slots, and my question is , should i put my NEW 8gb ram into the first slot(primary slot), or the second slot?Does that matter at all?I've heard people saying I should put 8gb into primary slot, but I dont get why. Anyone has explanation?
Thanks in advance!

Im not familiar with ddr4 memory or motherboards. Atleast for ddr3 supported motherboards dont really matter which slot you use (laptops not desktops)

Take Power cable and battery out before replacing or adding memory. You can also press Power button for 5secs to drain before touching ram if you want.
