    The 15" 2011's will allow 16gb RAM. I had one and maxed it out. No problems (with the ram).

    16GB will work if used with 2 8GB modules.
    You can even install up to 2133Mhz ddr3l RAM and the system will utilize the 2133Mhz.
    many threads on the subject.

    I belive Kingston hyperx ddr3l SODIMM are popular and works

    I believe both the 13" and 15" 2011 MBPs will accept 16 gb of ram.

    I wish you best of luck with your 2011 MacBook Pro. Are you aware of the gpu issues on that particular model. I'm dealing with it right now.
    Also 16 gb ram is podsible

    Apple says it only supports 8GB, but they utilize 16GB just fine.
