  1. Do you mean it can support 8Gb a DIMM or 8Gb total. Most DDR3 MOBs support 8GB a DIMM.
    What MOB do you have? It will work! :)
  2. what MOB? sorry im not familiar at tech stuffs >.<
    this is my manual said

    "the Northbridge supports the HyperTransport
    TM
    3.0
    interface. The memory controller supports DDR3 memory DIMM frequencies
    of 1333/1066/800. It supports two DDR3 sockets with maximum memory size
    of 8 GB."

    If the board only supports 8GB then that means you can only install 8GB worth of RAM. Just because W7 supports much more, it means nothing if the motherboard is limited to a certain amount.
  4. will my system can detect 16gb (8gb x2) .based on my operating system or based on my motherboard?
  5. We can not answer this question unless we get the MOB part number.
  6. Based on motherboard.
