Closed Lga1156 with 2x8gb? Tags: Asus CPUs Intel DIMM Motherboards Last response: March 1, 2013 3:35 PM in Motherboards Share Memorypleasenow March 1, 2013 1:06:26 PM Can this be done? On intel's site my 1156 cpu says max 4gb dimm if dual ranked, but they were made before 8gb sticks. Gskill claims that their 8x2gb kits are supported by 1156.

And the PC will not boot. Memorypleasenow March 1, 2013 1:37:04 PM Best answer selected by Memorypleasenow. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
