    Whenever I insert more than 2 i get three beeps when trying to boot. I tried cleaning and using the rams to another computer to see if they are broken.

    MB: Asus P5p41d
    OS: Windows 10
    Ram: 8gb/ 4 x 2gb

    It looks like that motherboard can only handle RAM sticks with chips on 4 sides. That could be two sticks with chips on both sides or four sticks with chips on one side.
