Inside Lenovo Legion 5i 17 – disassembly and upgrade options

This is a 17-inch laptop with enviable portability, great performance, and cooling, as well as quite a good amount of post-purchase upgradeability.

1. Remove the bottom plate

Like last year, you can remove the bottom panel of your device by undoing 11 Phillips head screws. Then just pop the plate away with a plastic tool, but be careful on the sides, as it seems to be a bit tight there.

2. Battery

As for power away from the plug, you get an 80Wh unit.

3. Memory and storage

Next comes the upgradability. In this case, there are two RAM SODIMM slots, hidden beneath a metal bracket. They can hold up to 64GB of DDR4 memory, despite Lenovo officially offering it with only 16GB. Additionally, the RAM installed here is 3200 MHz but will run at 2933 MHz on the Core i5 and the Core i7-10750H models. And in terms of storage, you get one M.2 PCIe x4 drive slot and a 2.5-inch SATA drive bay.

4. Cooling system

When it comes to cooling, there are only three heat pipes. One thick boy, which is common for the CPU and the GPU, another rather thick one, cooling the CPU, and one thin and long heat pipe for the graphics card. In order to aid the thermal control of the video memory and the VRMs, there are two metal plates. Interestingly, they have a “Y550” branding, which is indicative of hesitations in the naming process of Lenovo’s new gaming machines.
