My intel specs says: "16 GB maximum total system memory (with 2 Gb memory technology)."

"Supported Memory Configurations
1024 MB SS1 1 Gbit 128 M x 8 / empty 8
2048 MB DS2 1 Gbit 128 M x 8 / 128 M x 8 16"

2GB technology? Does this mean I can only use 2GB RAM modules and not 4GB modules? I doubt it, cuz then it'd be impossible to reach the max 16gigs, but what does the 2GB limit mean?

It will support 4GB single sticks. If you check the QVL, you will see there are 4GB sticks supported. ( http://www.cmtlabs.com/mbSearchResults.asp?sManuf=Intel... )

I'm sorry if this is bad form, but I'm in a similar situation and am confused with the options. I've got the same motherboard and right now I'm running 3x2g modules but want more memory. Can I just buy two pairs of 4g modules (DDR3 1333mhz) and not use that 4th module? This would double my memory but I'm not sure if it would actually work like I think/hope it would. Thanks!
