Upgraded T430 CPU, RAM Question

#1 Post by Libre_ME » Sun Sep 11, 2022 10:48 am

I recently upgraded a T430 with a 3632QM chip. The Intel page on this CPU states that it can support up to 32GB of memory. Does that mean that it's possible to use 32GB of memory in the T430. now?

Some W530 can, but not the T430/T530, they are limited to 2x8GB.

All T/X/W x30 only support 8GB per module. So those with 2 slots (X230/T430/T530) can take maximum 16GB, and those with 4 slots (W530) can take up to 32GB.
