See the DH61WW Technical Product Specification. In there it indicates that the -003 revision Updated maximum memory supported from 8 GB to 16 GB in March 2012.
With BIOS version BEH6110H.86A.0020.2011.0218.1538 released February 18, 2011 the max memory size was modified to 16G. You're running the current BIOS version release BEH6110H.86A.0113.2013.0226.1448 that was released February 26, 2013. You should be able to realize the maximum memory capability.
thanks again John!

Hello Bithing14, thanks a lot for posting your question at Intel communities.
I was checking the BIOS versions available for this motherboard on the download center, and there are 14 different files from the current version and the latest one.
Technically speaking, going straight to the latest version shouldn't be a problem, but in the practice and based on experience, there is always chance. So I would recommend you to update the BIOS installing as many versions you can.
The current BIOS version installed is 0041. The following versions included fixes related to memory. I would recommend checking the BIOS Update Release Notes on this URL. You will be able to see the fixes and features included on each version.
These are some important versions you could flash on your system.
BIOS Version 0046 Intel® Download Center
BIOS version 0099 added support for Microsoft Windows 8*. Due to structural changes in version 0099, once a board has been converted to 0099 or later, it will no longer be possible to downgrade the BIOS to version 0048 or earlier. Intel® Download Center
BIOS Version 0109 Intel® Download Center
BIOS Version 0111 Intel® Download Center
BIOS Version 0115 Intel® Download Center
If the system is working fine using BIOS version 0115, it won’t be necessary to install the latest version.
