You may want to learn a little more about data units...

It has 6 gigabit per second SATA connectors. SATA is the interface between your motherboard and your HDD/SSD/ODD.

For RAM, it supports "4 x DIMM, Max. 32GB, DDR3 2133(O.C.)/1866/1600/1333/1066 MHz ECC, Non-ECC, Un-buffered Memory".

You're probably running a 32bit OS.

The motherboard supports upto 32Gb of ram. Sata 6Gb/s is the speed of the sata bus(what your hdd is connected to). Try the ram 1 stick at a time, you may have a bad stick of ram or one that is not fully inserted.
