Windows 7: Windows 10 sees 4 dimms, mobo has only 2

Windows 10 sees 4 dimms, mobo has only 2

As per title; Windows 10 thinks my GA-H97N-WIFI has 4 ram slots, it only has 2.
Also my Hyperx Fury 1866Mhz ram only runs at 1600Mhz. Is my 4130T a limiting factor?

Edit: my BIOS is the newest (F7)
Edit1: okay, seems H97 is the limiting factor, as far as speed is concerned; supports 1600/1333

Can I use my existing account?
The way I see it, it's a bit bloody stupid having a separate forum for every iteration of Windows!
If it's a desperate concern, why not have subsections for different versions? Personally I can cope with reading the thread title, and deducing what OS version being discussed.

Hi,
Yes you will need to make another account but can use the same user name and password

I believe it's a good policy keeps us assuming a specific os is being used
