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! :)

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.
