Win 7 pro 64 SP1
How much memory can I use.

I just bought second hand Samsung Laptop, NP350V5C-S02AU.
Comes with I7-3610QM Processor,
Have put in Samsung 850 PRO SSD 512 Gb. Increased speed in many areas, very happy,
Tried online to find how much ram and what speed i could use. Only has 4 Gb in one slot.
All i got was many solutions, none the same. Downloaded HWiNFO64 v 5.04-2630 to get a better look at my specs.
Then I selected Intel Core I7-3610QM. scrolled down to ...

CPU IVB Features. some of the list is...

DDR Overclocking: Supported
On-die DDR Write Vref Generation: Supported
DDR3L: Supported
DDR Write Vref: Supported
Dual Channel: Supported
2 Dimms per Chanel: Supported

DDR3 Frequency Support (133 MHz RefClk): 800 MHz (DDR3-1600)
DDR3 Frequency Support (100 MHz RefClk): 1300 MHz (DDR3-2600)
Memory Size per Channel: Unlimited (16GB)

Can anyone help translating this info into how much and what speed ram i can use. I know DDR3L is 1.35 volt.
Motherboard has 2 slots. Thankyou.
