hi SF gurus,
i have a homebuilt computer, ASUS P6T6 mobo with 6x2 GB of RAM, Intel Core i7 CPU. i ran memtest86+ 4.20 and observed the following: although all 6 2 GB memory sticks are seen and listed on the memtest screen, it says i only have 8 GB of total memory. yet, when the tests were run, instead of going up to 12 GB, or stopping at 8 GB, it tests up to 9216 MB and then goes on to the next test, in every case. no errors were reported, but does this indicate there actually *is* a memory problem? also, given that no errors were reported up to 8 (actually 9) GB, can i assume that the problem is in sticks 4 or 5 (or the corresponding slots on the motherboard)?
thanks in advance for any thoughts.
