Dell Latitude E6520 Max Ram?

Jump to solution

I have Dell Latitude E6520 with i7-2720QM 2.2Ghz and 8gb Ram.

Can I upgrade the ram to 16gb or more? Specs say no, but I see a few on eBay listed with 16gb.

If anyone knows, thanks!

Hi xojins

Welcome to the Community

Your Computer has 2 memory slots and it can accommodate maximum of 8GB of memory.

For any upgrade compatibility issue you can refer to the below link.

Although unsupported the part is available on crucial here.

Sometimes you can put more memory in than Dell state as maximum, I have put 4 GB in an older laptop that stated 2 GB was the maximum and could use 3.25 GB fine.

Thanks. I was able to install 16GB since the processor supports up to 32gb. It's working great.

Did you have to adjust any other settings?

nope... you just need to check your CPU to verify the max ram.

As soon as I put it in, the BIOS picked it up and it was available in Windows. I think both memory sticks need to be identical. I bought a 2x8 16gb kit from Microcenter.

I have the EXACT same machine as yours, so I'm assuming that I do what you did.
