Your system does not support DDR4. It only support DDR3 and at 8Gb(2x4gb dimms) you are maxed out on the amount your board supports.

Just note it may not work. Official specs state an 8GB(2x4gb) max but there are some reports of 2x8gb kits working and some of them not working. Crucial and Kingstons memory configurators only offer a compatibility guarantee with 8GB kits on that system.
Which one do you think has the highest chance of working?
