T420 RAM Upgrade

Hi All,

 

Been reading around and I was wondering if I can exceed 8GB of RAM on the T420? I have read that someone was successful upgrading to 16GB of RAM. 

 

I'll most probably be running Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit. On a fresh SSD.

 

Has anyone achieved this?

 

Thanks,

M

T420 runs fine with 2X8GB=16GB total

It needs to be at least PC3-10600.  PC3-8500 is not good.
