Re: Maximum DDR3 memory DIMM for ThinkCentre M58 MT M6234-A1U

Crucial has 4GB memory modules avail for your specific system now, Jan 2016, guaranteed to work (must be System Specific), just like Kingston did.

 

http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/compatible-upgrade-for/Lenovo/thinkcentre-m58p-%28type-6137%2C-6234%2C...

 

For your specific model, aren't there 4 memory slots?   And four x 4GB is the 16GB you're looking for (2x 8GB not required/possible.)     See page 110:

Re: Maximum DDR3 memory DIMM for ThinkCentre M58 MT M6234-A1U

Thanks! 

 

Why they all suggested RAMS are 1600? I read manuals for my mother board and it says it supports 1333 (of 1060) only, I cant remember. 

 

Should I instead buy 1333 then? (Cheaper than 1600)

1600 is now more common, so it's easier and cheaper to source than 1333.

Looks like we have the same machine. I use only Crucial memory. I removed the OEM memory, purchased 2  4 gig sticks of Crucial memory, dropped them into slot 1 and 3 fired right up 8 gig. Shut the machine down, added 2 more 1 gig sticks in slots 2 and 4... Walla 10 gig memory running flawless. I am also waiting for my shiney new Crutical MX200 250 gig SSD drive to arrive. You won't go wrong with their stuff.

16GB of RAM is the Chipset limit. I have one 4GB sticks and 2 2GB sticks in my M58, and I am allowed use of all 8gb of it. Proof: http://valid.x86.fr/tp88ab

Re: M58: 4GB DIMM support for 16GB maximum memory (RAM)

I really hate to get in on this thread, however it is the only one that seems to be going down the same path that I need. 

 

I have searched all over the place for information about adding 16GB of RAM to my M58P 6209 ThinkCentre.  I purchased an 8GB (2x4GB) Ballistix kit.

  • 2 - 4GB DDR3 - 1600
  • UDimm 1.5v
  • BLS2KIT4G3D1609DS1S00
  • 649528755988

When I add it to the motherboard, with my original RAM (2x4GB sticks), I got a "confirguration attempt" error.  After searching for a day on that, I figured that my RAM was not compatible (for reasons unknown to me).  When I compare it to the OEM RAM, it looks like it will work.

 

The Crucial website only shows 2x2GB options for me, but I am not sure why when the motherboard maxes at 16GB.

 

I have yet to see confirmation that anyone has 16GB of RAM (and what kind) installed, but many have confirmed it as possible.  I guess I assumed DDR3-1600 RAM would work as the Crucial website suggests the same type BUT only in 2x4GB sticks.

 

Am I missing something about the 16GB of RAM?  I have BIOS 5CKT77AUS from 5/07/12.

 

Thanks!

Re: M58: 4GB DIMM support for 16GB maximum memory (RAM)

I don't think you are. But it just might be that Lenovo decided to limit it to make it a pain in the ***. In the future, I will try and get 4 4GB sticks of DDR3 to try and put in.
