Hi guys, I have a laptop with following specs:

Intel Pentium P6200 (HM55 Chipset)
2 x 2GB PC10600 DDR3.

My question is, can I buy 2x of 4GB PC12800 of DDR3L for my laptop? my RAM is always 80% usage, even with fresh install of Win10 with HDD.
 
Recommended speed by the manufacturer is DDR3 1333MHz.

PC3-12800 (DDR3 or DDR3L) may work, and if it is not compatible spec, it can under-clock and operate at PC3-10600.

It is better to buy the PC3-10600 (1333 MHz) instead.

Crucial says I can upgrade to 2x DDR3 PC3-12800 while Memory Stock gave me 4GB of PC3-10600. I read from ARK that my chipset are supposed to accept 2x 4GB of RAM though it never mention what speed.

My motherboard model is A42JZ & Laptop Model is A42J Series.
