Hello, I recently purchased new memory and have been having issues getting all of it to be recognized by my motherboard.

Ram and Motherboard

I have the most recent bios update but I cant seem to find out which slots I need to put the memory in for it to recognize the full 16gb, as of right now only 8gb is being recognized.

Manufacturers page for the motherboard can be found here

Thanks in advance for any help given.

Your mobo doesn't support 8GB sticks, only 4GB sticks up to 6 x4GB 24GB total

I currently have one 8gb stick installed and windows is reporting 8gb installed so I don't think this is the case.

Check for BIOS updates then, it came out only supporting 4GB sticks, they may have updated the BIOS then

They don't show anything that shows they have started supporting 8GB sticks - might want to email them, have seen a few mobos that don't officially support 8GB sticks pick up on them before, could try increasing DRAM voltage abit maybe try up 0.05
