Welcome to the forum!
That's a DDR3-12800 memory chip, this type of memory doesn't work in Thinkpads X201 (and same/older generation) you should try to get a DDR3-8500 or DDR3-10600 module instead.

I had problems with some 2GB DDR3-12800 Hynix modules
As a rule of thumb I avoid DDR3-12800 in anything prior xx30 generation. Just to be on the safe side
