RAM Amount

Hey so i have a CQ5320F with 3 gigs of RAM. My os is Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. I want to upgrade to 8 gigs of RAM but i have read from Crucial.com http://www.crucial.com/upgrade/HP+-+Compaq-memory/Presario+CQ+Desktops/Presario+CQ5320F-upgrades.html that my computer can only handle 4 gigs. However on HP they say that Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit can handle 16 gigs of RAM http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph03886&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=4107708 I am confused.

    Crucial is correct in saying that you computer can only handle 4GB of Memory. Here is the HP specs page for your motherboard. It is limited to a maximum of 2X2GB DDR3 DIMMs in PC3-8500 (DDR3-1066) or PC3-10600 (DDR3-1333) Speeds. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01925534&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&lc=en&product=4107708#N134
