32GBs o' RAM in a W701?

I Hear this is true, now a days we have 8gb chips so while IBM's official Specs say max RAM Output:16GBs it may actually be higher but I wanted to get a more expert opinion/s!

It is possible, but keep in mind that you must get four 8GB 2Rx8 RAM modules. If you were to slot-in four 8GB 1Rx8 RAM modules instead, it would not get detected due to their incompatible chip density.

Speed on another note, matters much less. However, I would recommend DDR3-1333 at the very least (or DDR3-1600, but it would be underclocked to DDR3-1333 speeds).
