It's the way the motherboard and processor (i7-900 series chips) use the memory. In the most simplified terms the RAM is ran in 3 lanes (triple channel) instead of 2 lanes (duel channel). The theory that 3 lanes is faster than 2.

Be aware that this has nothing to do with the memory itself, it's just the way the motherboard and processor runs it. X58 motherboards (1366 chipsets) can run their memory in triple channel mode - thus the typical 3 or 6 memory stick setup.

Hope this helps.

You still have an issue as you've still got 4gig of memory hardware reserved! On a 64bit OS it should be nowhere near that!

This is my system with 6gig of memory installed. Note that I've got just 2mb (megabyte) of memory hardware reserved.

Suggest you remove one stick of memory and run just the 3 in the black slots and see how it goes. Then move from there.

As I said earlier, if that stick isn't detected....there is a problem!!! If the stick isn't working/being detected.... why use it???

Also, are all the dimms (memory sticks) the same? Same brand? Same company? Same specs? If not, that too can be a problem.

We're posting to help you; please read what we post.

Thanks.
