I have aquired some DDR3 1600mhz ram´s for my pc, 32gb in total, 4x8gb sticks, i only have 2 slots my motherboard supports 16gb ram maximum, but it wount recognize more than 8gb, 2x4gb according to bios.

This is my motherboard:
Asus k30bf_m32bf_a_f_k31bf

The ram´s are Corsair vengance DDR3 1600mhz.
I use Windows 10 Pro (64bit)

In bios i can choose between default and profile 1 under D.O.C.P but when i choose profile 1 the screen flashes and it says something under advanced menu but i cant find anything there and it seems like it goes back to default profile again...

And the ram´s run at 1333mhz apparently...what else can i do to activate the remaining 4gb in each stick? and the remaining 277mhz in the ram? =P

Thank you

Why did you buy four sticks when the mobo has only two slots? If the system wont recognize the full amount the cpu has to be upgraded afaik. You could try flashing the bios of the mobo with the latest version. There's also no guarantee that more ram will increase performance, the bottleneck could be the GPU or the CPU. Ask this on Toms Hardware forum.

hmm, i replied on my phone and apparently some of it dissapered....

anyway, i got the sticks for free :)
When i bought the computer from the store in 2014 he said it will do 16gb of ram, so i´m guessing the cpu should do it aswell? :)
Its a amd radeon a8 7600 radeon r7 10 compute cores 4c+6g 3.10ghz
Bios is the latest version available

I have noticed a good increse in performance going from 4 to 8 gb of ram atleast :)

I didnt think Tom´s hardware forum was still alive, totally forgot about it =P thanks for the tip
