So would you use the 1x8gb equivalent of 2x4gb kit even thought it is not listed in the QVL but share the same specs???

THANKS!

QVLs are good, but they tend to be out of date.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.

Maybe a better approach would be to check with the RAM manufacturer for the boards a specific module is guaranteed to work in. G.Skill for one has such a list and for a specific set of RAM listed for a specific board, it's guaranteed to work. They offer great support as well to help with compatibility issues.
They even replaced a set for me that I got as a gift.

Newegg has a 32gb kit of G.Skill DDR3 2133 1.5v memory seen at Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-17000CL11Q-32GBZLD

Expect to be paying out around $375 as seen there more or less depending on where you go. Here I went with Kington Hyper X 1.5v memory which has worked out well. Before that I had Muskin Enhanced in but the dimms sit up about 1/8" higher then any other brand it seems due to a heat shield.

That was a far better price then what they catch for a 32gb kit of DDR3 1866 Corsair Dominator! Try $500! Newegg.com - CORSAIR DOMINATOR GT 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 15000) Desktop Memory Model CMT32GX3M4X1866C9

The only thing is a vendor doesn't do testing, they sell things.
From your specs, if correct, you should install Service Pack 1.
