Hi,
I have GA-P55-UD4 board. -> http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=...
And G-skill F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM (2Gx2) -> http://www.gskill.com/products.php?index=243

And I want to extend my memory, as much as the board can let me. (Money is not a problem.)

According to GigaByte supported memory list I can't use 4Gb memory. -> http://download.gigabyte.eu/FileList/Memory/mb_memory_g...

What can you suggest?
Should I follow this list and just buy another pair of 4Gb of the same that I currently have?

Can I "push" it to 16Gb with 4x4Gb?
anyone did it before?

Thanks!

1.6v ram isn't recommended by Intel; but you can try setting the voltage to 1.5v in manual mode and see how it runs. I don't think you'll do any permanent damage to the board or ram trying it for a short time. I use 8 gb of ram; I noticed no difference in performance dropping from 16 gb to 8 gb to conserve space on my ssd; I also use ripjawsX.

I didn't know that Intel does not recommend 1.6v. And I'm currently using a memory stick with 1.6v...
So what are you saying? that I should replace it? using 1.5v and it will work?

I'm trying to find the right memory sticks for my board.

Excellent. Use your ripjaws ram; it should run fine at 1.6 volts.

You can use 4GB ram on that MB. Just because the QVL list doesn't list any doesn't mean you can't. They clearly say 16GB total, 4GB support would have to be supported.

Just match your original memory and you'll be fine.

Ok, people here say two different things:
* Use the same RAM that you use.
Doing that will result in 8Gb. (2Gbx4)

* You can use 4Gb sticks, because your MB is suppose to supports it. (Even if it's not on the supported memory list)
Ok, what memory should I buy?

Which path should I go?
That is the MAIN question!

Thanks

Your board will run 16 gb of ram as stated on your spec sheet; it recommends 1.5v: http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=...; gigabyte hasn't tested any 4 gb sticks, but your board supports them. Just select "specifications" and you'll see your board's ram capacity.
