Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is a 2010 system.

While it states it upports up to 16 gigs of Ram, That may be 4 x 4 gig modules. The Mother board may not support 8 Gig modules. Can probably be verified in MB manual (or At Asus support web site). it is also possible, if you have NOT updated the MB Bios, there may be a Updated revision to the Bios that adds/improves memory support.
