8GB sticks work, they don't get recognized in the BIOS, but it works and they get addressed by the OS.

But only if you run a x64 system. A good friend of mine bought a laptop with 8GB ram many months ago. Some day he recognized he's got just a x86 OS :Banane56:

They work but I believe they clock down to 1333MHz :) that may be system ram speed limit for first gen Intel Core series cpus.

It's good that some one can confirm about 16Gb of RAM on M15x. I'm confident to go ahead with this upgrade now, been on the list for a while :P

I have seen a few people done that, and I can confirm it is true. You simply put two 8th ram in and system will recognize them (although motherboard stated max ram is 8gb). If you buy ram of more than 1333Mhz, the system will only use 1333mhz.

i have tried several makes of ram, everytime my m15x says starting windows and reboots, ubuntu fails to boot also. when i run a memory test it gets so far and reboots, i doubt its faulty ram as i have tried a lot now, any ideas?

Are you sure you put the ram properly in their slots? At first I had one of the two sticks that was not fully inserted and caused the start up to stop at BIOS level.

I have 2x8Gb of 1333MHz Ram in my M15X, and it works well (though it is pretty useless, for some apps you need a bit more than 4Gb, and 8Gb is more than enough).

Sorry, if that can be merged with the previous post by a moderator:

The exact reference of my RAM is: G Skill F3-10666CL9-8GBSQ.

As far as I know 16gb works fine, was thinking about upgrading myself (though I'm not sure that there's any point). The reason for the max "supported" memory being listed at 8gb is most likely due the fact that 8gb SO-DIMMs didn't exist at the time, and thus were unable to be tested (could be wrong there).

8gb is enough for me haha. Though ram is so cheap anybody upgrading now should jump for 16gb. You'll need it for games coming up in the next couple years. Even BF3 from like last year uses over 6gb for me.

In my M15x I have 2x8GB Kingstone KVR16LS11/8 with 740qm.

With 920xm situation is the same.

Bios can't see module but Windows 7 see all 16GB RAM.

RAM have 1.35V and 1600MHz but I can max 1333MHz.

Everythink works good and better with 16GB.
