This motherboard was not designed for high capacity memory. When it was released there were no 8GB memory modules. You can try your luck with the latest BIOS release. I have no other idea how to make it work.

Return the stick and buy something that works with your board. The webpage for your board will have a list...

Did you take out the other stick(s) when you put this in? Where is the second stick of the ram you bought for dual channel?

Two/2 DIMMs supporting 8GB..which means 2x4GB. Notice in the memory QVL list you aren't seeing 8gb capacities?

Again, did you remove the other sticks when you put this one in?
