This is a motherboard limitation. If you are using Windows 7 32 bit, only 4 GB can be used anyway. If you have 64 bit, you can put in more than 8 GB, but the motherboard just will not recognize it. I don't think it will do any harm. Having that much RAM is not going to benefit you much anyway. If you need more, check for a motherboard that handles more.
