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

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.

aw god thx for that crucial link as the ram also support m58p 7220 model
i was like **bleep** when i saw that 2gb supported per slot
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

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.
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.

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.
