See http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007609%20600006178%20600213067&IsNodeId=1&name=16GB%20%282%20x%208G%29 for a bunch of 2x8GB pairs that should work.

It may interest many to know that I have successfully upgraded the main memory on my T520 to 16Gb over 1-week ago.  My research suggests that since I have a quad core i7 running a 64-bit operating system, this should not be a problem.

 

Since I do not have a dual core CPU, I have not spent much time researching this, but I believe these CPUs will only recognize a maximum of 8Gb.  I suggest to do your research.

 

I procured the 16Gb kit (by Crucial) from Newegg -

Crucial 16GB (2 x 8G) 204-Pin DDR3
SO-DIMM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
1.35v
Dual Channel Kit
Laptop Memory Model CT2KIT102464BF160B
