Max RAM

I've got the same question as others about max memory. Can I exceed the 8GB of ram?

 

The computer says "Not to exceed manufacturer supported memory."

 

This is my scan info number.  

Your scanner ID:074B671531D926C3

System info:

Windows 7 SP 1, 64 bit

Intel Core2 Quad CPU Q9300 @2.50GHz 2.50GHz

Installed Memory 8.00GB

Video Card:  nVidia GEFORCE® GTX 1070 Founders Edition

Re: Max RAM

Hi dmjohsnx2,

 

Thanks for contacting us. I pulled up your system scanner and it does appear that the system maxes out at 8GB of RAM. We would not advise going above 8GB of RAM. This is a limitation with your motherboard.

Thanks for the reply Yogi. I was advised to get a couple of 16GB sticks, but to wait til after holiday season, but I thought there had been something said about maxed out RAM.
