Hello I have asus s400-ca ca111h the max ram that should be in this laptop is 8 gb.
Currently I have two slots with 4 ram in it.
I would like to upgrade to more than 8gb of ram.
My question is if it possible to put more than 8 gb and it will be ok?
and if there is a limitation of the size per slot of the ram ( is it possible to put one slut of 8 gb?)

What you said you have and what you list as "details of the current RAM" don't match. You said you have two 4gb ram sticks, your post shows you have one 8 gb stick. For a system from 2013, adding more than 8 RAM won't help you with speeds. If you don't have a solid state drive, get one of those instead of the RAM.

With some systems they can see more RAM than the vendor stated max, but that is on a system by system basis.
