QVLs are good, but they tend to be out of date. Gigabyte may test 8GB DIMMs with their board, but you can't count on it.
If you insist on trying 8GB DIMMs, you may have to rely on the memory manufacturer to certify compatibility, rather than Gigabyte. It might also be good to buy them from a vendor with liberal return policies, in the event that you can't get them to work properly.
