Inspiron 17R 5720 - Need Memory Specs!!

Greetings ~ I have been unable to find this information anywhere, including the manual. My Inspiron 17R 5720 has 6GB of PC3-12800S RAM. I would like to upgrade it to the MAX.

Can anyone help me out by telling me how much RAM this laptop can take, and the top chip speed it can handle?

Thanks!
