RAM upgrade for L440

Hi All,


I have Thinkpad 440 and want to upgrade to ram to 16 gb(8x2). But seeing the installed ram I am unable to understand which type of ram it is DDR3 or DDR3L.  After bit of googling, I came to know that installed ram is DDR3L.

I am thinking of buying Kingston DDR3L 1600MHZ ram. 


Please help me in choosing the compatible ram.


Thanks in advance.

Nope... A 4th gen core i CPU will support RAM modules of maximum 8GB each, and your L440 has two RAM slots, resulting in a max RAM of 2x 8GB...
