I had working that motherboard with 8GB. Just make sure that you are using a good power supply. Preferably ATX v2.2 min 500W, Upgrade BIOS to the latest version 0572 & used pared memory preferably from the tested and validated list of memory found on Intel web site.
Very Important: 1.8 V (only) DDR2 SDRAM DIMMs with gold-plated contacts
What memory did you have on that board. That chart is a year old.
I was using Kingston KVR800D2N5/1G
