Having issues with new ram, "Unable to use X amount"

I have a Asus P6T Deluxe with a 1366 i7-930. No OC, no bios changes; All default.
Up until yesterday I had This in the MB. I bought This and installed all 6 into the MB. No issues. But the computer only recognizes 16gb of the 24. It saying it in the Computer > Properties: Memory 24gb ( only 16gb is useable ). (Windows 7 btw)

I did not touch the bios either. Anyone able to give me some insight?
