Whilst there clearly is no limit at 32Gb (as you already have a 40) - it's still very common for there to be another limit at 128/137Gb (or thereabouts) - which will almost certainly not be specified one way or another.

Looking at the BIOS updates for the board, it is not mentioned either - my expectation is that this limit would exist.

The mode to support these higher capacities is called 48bit LBA mode, and requires support both in the BIOS and the Operating System
