    Wow.. it worked... 16GB.. LOL.. Grats man... No way in hell you would use all that up but at least you're set for life..
    Nothing is impossible... Just mathematically improbable..

    Bill Gates' response to people misquoting him:
    No one involved in computers would ever say that a certain amount of memory is enough [...] But even 32 bits of address space won't prove adequate as times goes on [...] Meanwhile, I keep bumping into that silly quotation attributed to me that says 640 k of memory is enough.
    In real life the 16 GB will get used up in no time.

    This is for a low budget virtual server running Microsoft's Hyper-V virtualisation technology, so the fact that the P45 chipset is supporting 16GB of RAM, and having 4GB modules from OCZ being so cheap, this will really open the door to a lot of cool stuff without needing to fork out for real server hardware.

    I have already used up most of the RAM by provisioning more VM's, so I will be using it all up in no time at all :)

    I think it is appropriate to add a second "testimony".

    I've used EP45-DQ6 with BIOS ver F12 and 2x2GB Mushkin. IIRC, the only BIOS setting deviating from default is:
    'Performance Enhance' changed to 'Standard'.

    I took the 4 GB out and plugged in two sets of Mushkin 996655, ie 4x4GB of EM2-6400, 5-5-5-18.

    BIOS shows up ... POST succeeds ... Vista Ult. x64 boots ... no problems of any kind show up.

    Scratch that "any kind", there are mental problems:
    1. Vista would like to use a swap file up to 32 GB in size. Hello, your defaults make no sense at this scale.
    2. CPU-Z says 5-5-5-18, 2T. Forgot to check whether the 2x2GB had 1T. But what can you expect?
    3. Got to dig up memtest+, or something. Prime95 (64-bit I assumed) seems to reserve only 1750 MB, even though I said 15000 MB ...

    The "16384 of ram" at the BIOS screen gave a flashback to less than 15 years ago, when the BIOS said "16384 of ram". kB back then, MB now. <sentimental smiley>
