I see you`re using a 550, my bad

The only thing I can suggest is, find out the maximum amount of memory your board supports and install that amount.

6 GB is a strange amount.

All the specs I dig up say your board supports a maximum of 4 GB, but you have 6 installed, so I have no idea what the max is.

the reason it is 6 gb is the pc came with 2 1gb sticks and 2 512's i actually bought 2 dimms 4gb ram and tossed the 512's (still have em its just garbage ram though) i kinda bought the ram with out looking at the specs again but its still not a waste because as i said i still have another board only really need a case, the other board i have can carry 8gb of ram i was just seeing if there was a way i could maximize what i can use on this mobo for now.
