My Thinkpad T470 came with 500 GB and 4 GB of RAM and so planning to upgrade with an SSD and 8 GB of memory.

Have finalized this SSD:

Samsung 960 EVO Series - 250GB PCIe NVMe - M.2 Internal SSD (MZ-V6E250BW)

Which  I think would work with these parts from Lenovo:

01AX994 Ct470 Adapter Hdd Asm Bracket

00UR496 Cable M.2Ssd

Does anyone have any recommendations for the memory? Either Crucial or Samsung?

Also, will I be able to make use of dual channel with my 4 GB + 8 GB setup? Or do I have to have 8 GB + 8 GB?

Thanks a lot.
