Inspiron 15 3543 with i7 (5500U) ram upgrade to 16GB

Times goes by and Crucial came with new so-dimm 16GB RAM and on spec page for this processor type (i7-5500U) they writes "Max Memory Size (dependent on memory type) = 16GB" .

I know that in manual for 3543 Inspiron they writes maximum ram is 8GB, but...

I found that some Inspiron notebooks in 7000 series has processors with same mother board in same intel generation like that: https://www.dell.com/my/p/inspiron-15-7548-laptop/pd

Does anybody know more? Is it possible to use this 16GB RAM?
There is anyone who tryed this new RAM ???

Processor spec: i7 5500U Spec
RAM: Crucial 16GB 1600 DDR3L

I cannot verify if 16gb of ram will work in this computer. The specs, as you know, only support 8gb.

Memory module connector This system has only one memory slot.
Memory module capacities 2 GB, 4 GB and 8 GB
Memory type 1600 MHz DDR3L
Minimum memory 2 GB
Maximum memory 8 GB

I see some sellers on ebay with 16Gb DDR3L specifically claiming them to be for the 3543. Has anyone tested this to see if it works? I see lots of posts with people asking, but none with anyone confirming.

Long story short.....16GB is not going to improve performance......unless you have a specific gaming computer playing sophisticated games.  Just saying.  Also, with a nice Nvidia graphics card.
