OVER JUICING THE RAM OF MY LAPTOP - is it the right thing to do?

Hello Guys

I am using my Sony Vegas Pro 12 on my Dell 3450 (i5 + 6GB RAM + Two basic level built in Intel and AMD graphic cards) for the HD Video Rendering though the computer becomes very very slow and sluggish during the process and I want to upgrade the RAM.

Dell website says the max amount of RAM for this laptop is 8GB and I stumble upon one we blink from DELL Online Community Forum in which one guy said that INTEL website says Dell 3450 can take 16 GB MAX though Dell insist on 8GB Max and then later in same blog one more guy said that he is using 16GB with his Dell 3450, its working for him.

It sounds tempting and yes I would really like to upgrade the RAM to 16GB so I can do some HD Video Rendering smoothly for another year or so though really want your advice and opinion on this upgrade - is it safe to over juice the machine? any technical issues or conflicts that can occur?

I know that most of the times companies want to hide the max limit of their products from their customers to protect their future sales/profits though if I can upgrade to 16GB with intel 2nd Gen i5 then I think I am good for another 3 or 4 years BUT really want your advice on both matters promptly.
