    In the worst scenario the PC will not boot or will not recognize the full amount once booted.

    If you don't find an user that actually tried that combination, the best way is to order the ram on amazon or similar service where is easy to return the wrong ram and get the money back.

    You can also check if your chipset has a generic limit. In that case, no matter the firmware installed, you have no chance.
