    Officially it only supports 8GB:

    If you installed higher than that, it will void your warranty.

    And while it sounds good to have more than 8GB, I think you'll be very happy with 8GB. It makes a world of difference and the OS instantly starts utilizing it.

    All 2011 Sandy Bridge MBPs can accept 16GB and it WILL NOT void your warranty like the previous post said.

    All 2011 15" and 17" can even accept and post 1600Mhz ram, while the 13" cannot and only posts 1333Mhz ram.

    RAM is User Upgradable and won't void the warranty.

    And, the OP's Mac supports 16 GB

    Please show me where that's stated on Apple's website.

    I am not doubting that it will accept 16Gb. However, upgrading this computer beyond 8Gb will void the warranty.

    Then save your old modules. Put them back in if your mac ever needs service.
