Just received my W540 today. I selected the 8GB single DIMM in configuration. Now I want to buy 3 other RAM that is compatible with the shipped one HMT41GS6BFR8A-PB (FRU 03X6657). So which RAM should I buy?

I have 2 different pairs in my W540.
The 2x 4GB Samsung M471B5173DB0-YK0 PC3L-12800 1600MHz ones that came with the machine and then I added a pair of Transcend TS1GSK64W6H 8GB PC3L-12800 DDR3-1600MHz that I got from our Lenovo partner, for a combined 24GB setup.
Although it's preferrable to have the RAM in pairs, it's not crucial. For optimal results though, I recommend that you stick to the same type of RAM for all four slots.
