See if there is a model# on the board, it might already support up to 32GB.
I ran a crucial scan and it came back saying that my board can support up to 32GB of RAM.
Memory Type: DDR3 PC3-10600, DDR3 PC3-12800, DDR3 PC3-14900, DDR3 (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 32GB
Currently Installed Memory: 8GB
Total Memory Slots: 4
Available Memory Slots: 0
I am relatively new to PC building(outside of the simple stuff like dropping in a graphics card) so I'm unsure about which memory types are better for what I'm looking to do(graphic design work, gaming).
