So my Gigabyte M68mt-s2 motherboard says it has max ram capacity of 8gb.

I just ordered these new ram for it:

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL

When i boot it get stuck at bios screen if i place both in, but if i take out the one from second slot it boots up just find. If i place it in the very first boot it says it found both ram stick and says memory is at 8168 or something around there passing 8gb is that the main problem of the ram getting stuck at bios that its actually a little higher then 8gb? or is the second stick just defective? thanks.
