I am using an Asus p5n32 sli se deluxe MB with twin corsair cm2x2048-6400c5 memory. I tried to add another 4 Gb identical memory, but MB won't boot. Supposedly, the MB will handle 8 Gb memory. Looks like a lot of people are having trouble getting it to run 8 Gb memory. What MB WILL run at least 8 Gb of memory?

1) Check to see if there are any bios updates to your motherboard that might address ram issues. Do not update the bios unnecessarily.
2) It sometimes takes a bit more voltage to power 4 sticks vs. two. Try updating the ram voltage a notch.
3) Run memtest on each stick individually to exclude the possibility of a bad stick. Test a known good stick in each slot to exclude the unlikely possibility of a bad ram slot.
4) Corsair support perhaps can help you.
5) Verify that your ram is either on the motherboard QVL ram support list, or is supported according to the Corsair ram configurator.

If the motherboard supports 8gb or whatever, and you are using supported ram, then you should post. No new motherboard should be needed.
