Hi there, just want to inform here what is the maximum amount of RAM that support this laptop idepat Z580. Ive bought it with 6gb ram, but want to upgrade to 2x8GB. Information are different, somewhere is maximum of ram 8GB, but some of diagnostic software displays maximum support ram of 16GB.
so whats the true?

Crucial® Memory Advisor results for the Lenovo IdeaPad Z580 Laptop says 8GB RAM maximum...
please also see this Z580 RAM thread...

I am going to try 16gb in my z580, and see if it runs ok, i have had my z580 for a few weeks so i know how it runs.

16gb works fine in my Win7 Z580, i ran Memtest86+ v5.00b no errors, i ran windows experience index (wei) and my scores remained the same no bootst from 8gb to 16gb i get 7.5 for memory.
I ran wprime the long 1024m test and it passed no problems, i ran metro 2033 on my HD4000 and it ran great, i think i runs slighly smoother on 16gb over 8gb.
This is only a quick test, i will report again after a few days, if i can find this thread again.
