This processor supports 2 channels, and each channel supports 2 slots, so that make a total of 4 slots, and the processor will support a maximum of 16 GB RAM.
So that means 4 RAM sticks of 4 GB each one, or 2 RAM sticks of 8 GB each one.
Oh, I understand now that line in ark.
Meanwhile I searched the mainboard info, where I got more confused -> http://www.msiwhitebook.com/product_spec.asp?model=MS-16f2-ID1
That`s my model, and i will outline only the important info :
Main Memory • SO-DIMM slots x 4 for DDR3 1333/1066 MHz if the CPU is four cores
(2 slots on the motherboard front side and 2 slots on the rear side)
• SO-DIMM slots x 2 for DDR3 1333/1066 MHz if the CPU is dual cores
• Maximum 16GB (Up to 4GB each slot)
Now it`s in question if i5 is treated as a four or double (the mainboard supports i3,i5 and i7)
In this case, this is a dual core processor, but I would suggest contacting the laptop / motherboard manufacturer so they can explain you the way the motherboard works.
Ok, thanks for your support

You need to contact the laptop manufacturer so they can provide you a list of supported memory brands and part numbers for your laptop system.
