That motherboard has a Max of 4GB, if you install more, it will not POST.  Also, It would not work with AMD only RAM, lol.. It's not AMD.

Can confirm - that board is older, so it's only going to take 4GB RAM total. https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P5KPLAM/specifications/

Many LGA 775 boards were produced before 4gb sticks were available and we're not tested with them. Sometimes while not being certified, they still do work with the dimms maxed out at 4gb each.

 

"AMD only" ram is high density and will only work with a small percentage of am3 systems.
