I have a HUGE problem that I only now took seriously. A couple of months back I added another set of 6gb ram to my computer.. everything worked perfectly fine up until about 2 months ago when I noticed how windows shows that I have 12 gigs of ram but only 8 are usable, I put everything in stock settings and just left it be.. today - I finally got enough time and formatted my windows in hopes that this thing will go away.. yet it hasnt gone away and is the same.. I decided to overclock a bit and overclocked my CPU to 3.0Ghz and memory up to 1645Mhz (thats the advertised speed of the RAM).. its still the same.. so I decided to take out one set of RAM and see if it helps.. and now it says I have 6 gigs but only 4 usable.. I have no idea what to do anymore.. I am running windows 7 ultimate 64bit..
spec is as follows:
EVGA X58 FTW3
Intel Core i7 930
Corsair Dominator 12gb DDR3 1600Mhz tr3x6g1600c8d
Enermax Revolution 85+ 1050W
1x WD velociraptor 300GB (Main boot drive)
1x Seagate Barracude 2TB SATA III (Storage)
Any help is appreciated..
(NOTE, computer boots up perfectly fine with one beep I can't see how this is a hardware issue)..
Computer is a year and 2 months old
