Will my Maximus IV Extreme-z Motherboard support 32 gb of ram?

My motherboard currently is running 16gb ram (4x4gb chips) And I would like to change it into (4x8gb chips) so that I will have 32 gb ram. Im running a Maximus IV Extreme-Z motherboard, with a 2700k processor in it. Will it support 32 gb of ram?

    Google is your friend :)

    4 x DIMM, Max. 32GB, DDR3 2200(O.C.)/1866(O.C.)/1600/1333 Hz Non-ECC, Un-buffered Memory
    Dual Channel Memory Architecture
    Supports Intel® Extreme Memory Profile (XMP)
    * According to Intel® SPEC, the Max. 32GB memory capacity can be supported with DIMMs of 8GB (or above). ASUS will update QVL once the DIMMs are available on the market.
    * Refer to or user manual for the Memory QVL (Qualified Vendors Lists).
    * Due to CPU behavior, DDR3 2200/2000/1800 MHz memory module will run at DDR3 2133/1866/1600 MHz frequency as default.
  2. 32GB is a definite yes - question is what 32GB? 1866 should be no problem, 2133 is probable if you have a strong 2700K, don't think I'd try 2400 or higher
