    Wait just a tick here: where did you get that information from, Yeoo? On Asus' own site - as linked to above - they say the board can support 16GB max, so I'll hazard a guess that what you've read is either inaccurate, or outdated (you may need to update your BIOS to allow for full memory utilization).

    Unless you've typed in the incorrect model number in your original post :D

    8GB will be the real world max, since it's basically impossible to find module with 8GB density, so a 2x4GB kit...
    Just like I have a board that 'support' 32GB, but 2 dimm slots... yeah right.

    8GB memory modules are pretty common these days. :eyebrow:

    I shouldn't be posting on forums so early... didn't see v2... other one only have 2 slot. Also it's been a little while since I looked, and apparently 8GB modules are easily available now, which weren't not too long ago. I'm not perfect.

    I've done some googling and you can install 16gb on this board. 2x8gb. HTH.
