US specs for 80SV:

You have 4GB soldered and 1 memory socket, with 4GB. 

Max is 12GB.... you would have to replace the 4GB in socket with 8GB stick.

From what I see, removal of DVD is necessary to add 2nd HDD/SSD.

First of all, note that I'm more of an "experienced noob" (not exactly noob, but not far from).
I would like to ask if someone could explain me why this wouldn't work with this laptop - it's 2133 MHz, CL=15.0 (dunno what it means but CPU-Z tells me the installed memory is the same).

And also, if the above would work, would the performance be actually better? I mean, I guess it wouldn't be dual channel anymore? (yes, I'm not at all far from being a total noob...)

Thanks in advance!
