Title says it all, I first built my PC with 8gb (2x4 dual-channel) of ram and decided to get another 2x4 kit of the exact same ram. But when I finished installing it onto PC, the BIOS and system info only show it has 4gb??? HELP

i didn't said the mainboard can't handle 4 sticks, i said it didn't liked the mix you did and that is the way of showing it, you can buy 16 gb modules too, but i wouldn't bother with more than 2x8gbs
 
Try it with just the new RAM. Don't get the old and new mixed up, because even though they are the "same", if not bought in a kit, there is a chance they will not work properly together. When I am fooling around with RAM, I put a small dot on the old RAM with a sharpie so I don't get them mixed up.
