Thank you for your kind response. I'd like to assure you that I have researched way too many resources to find the answer, included the topic you mentioned. But, it just quotes the manual, which I already read, too.
And, the manual is from January 2011, and the first Intel CPU of 3rd generation was released in Q2'12 if I'm correct, which makes manual outdated. Also, for example, it was stated back then that max RAM for this model was 8GB (2x4GB), simply because then there were no 8GB banks, but regardless of that I succesfully upgraded it with 12GB.
Once again thank you for your support. Basically I just need to know if somone tried it.
