Has anyone successfully used an 8gb or higher stick with the Classified SR-2?
 
I was looking back at the original manual for this board, and if I understand correctly the maximum memory per stick mentioned is 4gb.  I am not sure if that is because 4gb is the maximum supported per stick or because the manual was published back in 2010.  Maybe that was the maximum any manufacturers made back then but the board can support higher?

They did not have 8gb sticks back then. I used 8gb sticks on my EVGA x58 Classified3 and my FTW3 boards.
Gskill Sniper DDR3 1866 no issues at all. I ran 2 on them for total 16gb

It seems 4GB/slot and 48GB Max.
I have a English sr-2 mannual in my conputer but now I am not at home.

Is It usual? my supermicro X58 (x8dtl-6 nearly the cheapest level) can use 16gb/slot.

Yes that is definitely what my SR-2 manual says too. 
 
However I am wondering if maybe that is just because 8gb sticks were not invented when that manual was published. 
 
I would love to know if anyone has successfully used a stick larger than 4gb in the classified SR-2.

Upon further investigation, it seems like the answer is that yes, some 8gb ECC memory works with this board to bring the max capacity up to 96gb.  More details here: https://forums.evga.com/8...s-on-SR2-m1538509.aspx

I currently have an 8gb stick plugged into memory slots A1 B1 and I have slots A2 and B2 empty, and the computer is working, the manufacturer says my board can handle 16gb, but it never  specifies 4gb per slot. Is this an ok config or am I going to burn up my mobo? I have 2 more sticks of 8gb ram, all 4 sticks are identical, I figured before I plug it in and see if my computer turns on, I would ask advice here. I'd rather not permanently damage anything.
