This is maybe a stupid question, but I was looking at upgrading the RAM on my old motherboard from 8GB (2GBx4) to 32GB (8GBx4) because I've begun RAW photo editing and I could use as much RAM as possible. However, I thought to look up the motherboard's specs and according to ASUS the max supported RAM is 16GB (4GBx4).

Is this one of those "we don't *support* 8GB DIMMs" type of situations, or will 8GB DIMMs truly not work? If they might function but with reduced speed that would be fine for my purposes; I need a lot of RAM, not necessarily super fast RAM.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated. I tried a Google search and came up empty-handed.
