Hello, 

I have a question about compatibility between I7-4940mx and 16GB Ram from Crucial. 

CT2KIT204864BF160B

I know this Processor supports 32GB Ram (4X8GB) but what about 32GB (2X16GB). Anyone has any information about this issue. 

Sincerely 

Hossam

You need to ask the manufacturer of your motherboard what they will support.

Al is correct; it is the MRC code in the BIOS that determines whether it is supported​. You need to ask the vendor what their BIOS has support for.
