I 've already installed a 4GB module of DDR3 and works fine, but i would like to buy another one to reach 8GB...the question is, will the mobo recognize the second module or will it not? I mean, has anyone really used this board with 8GB of DDR3?
That's what i think too o1die, this mix-up between the various sites/manuals is a little worrying though so i thought I'd be 100% sure before buying the new module...One reasonable explanation that i can give for this, is that earlier BIOS versions of the board didn't support a total of 8GB of DDR3, and that was later fixed with an update(?) ..after all, the manual in my box is dated May 24, 2010 which is only 3 days after the first Bios update had been released..
Anyway, i' ve also contacted Gigabyte via e-mail and hope to hear from them soon
Thanx for your time o1die, any other replies from people who have tested this are very welcome!
So, here's the official answer to my e-mail by the Gigabyte support team:

Still, they don't mention anything about the manual as well as other Gigabyte's sites saying 4GB of DDR3....guess i 'll go with my own explanation that earlier BIOS versions only supported 4GB...Anyway, i 'll stick to their answer and go buy myself another identical stick
