One DIMM per channel only

I recently built a new computer. I use it to do 3d modeling and gaming. Unfortunately the 4 gigs is slowing down my rendering and makes the program slow down when millions of vertices are displayed such as when I'm sculpting. So I'm looking to get 8 gigs of ram in my computer. However, it looks like the motherboard might have an issue with that. The ram compatibility list manual states.

According to Intel spec definition, DDR3-1600 is supported for one DIMM per channel
only. ASUS exclusively provides two DDR3-1600 DIMM support for each memory

My motherboard is ASUS P7P55D-E Pro LGA 1156 Intel P55 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

The ram I have is G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL

After looking around the web it appears some people have had success and some people have not with getting 8 gigs of ram in.
Does anyone know if I'll have trouble with 8 gigs. OR if I'll be able to send the ram back in if it doesn't work?

  1. I would also like to know this. I have the same Mobo but I have this RAM and was going to buy another 2 DIMMs so I have 8GB RAM but now I am reading this. Will I have to get 2x4GB sticks instead?
