System memory = total memory of the system.
Please look in the lower left corner of my post (My System Specs)
That is what we need and the place to install it.
I think the problem we/you are having is the understanding of terms.
That is why we need system specs display properly so we can try to eliminate such problems.

Please read and follow the instruction of this again.

Sorry for jumping in.

Each slot can handle a max of 4GB for a total of 8GB. I believe earlier you said you had 6GB modules installed in each slot. That configuration wouldn't be supported. I think I remember hearing or reading that exceeding the maximum RAM (in this case 4GB per slot) could have an adverse affect on the mobo. It could fail to boot the computer, it could "reset" the RAM max, it could work but only record the max amount supported by the mobo, etc.

Again, my apologies for jumping in and no disrespect intended to Layback or Northernsoul.

oh no,
I appreciate any and all help. I chose to run with the (2) 4-gig sticks of corsair, for this Mb. I did notice that the Corsair memory runs much cooler than the Mushkin.

marsmimar not problem at all. You are welcome as far as I'm concerned to join the fun.
-----------------------
delamite your specs show that you have 4 sticks 2 gigs each installed which equals 8 gigs of total system memory.
Is that correct?
Are all sticks of ram matched. Same part #, same speed and the same volts. All DDR-3 or all DDR-2.
Your motherboard specs.

DDR3:

2 x 1.5V DDR3 DIMM sockets supporting up to 8 GB of system memory (Note 1)
Dual channel memory architecture
Support for DDR3 1333(O.C.)/1066/800 MHz memory modules

DDR2:

2 x 1.8V DDR2 DIMM sockets supporting up to 8 GB of system memory (Note 1)
Dual channel memory architecture
Support for DDR2 1066(O.C.)/800/667 MHz memory modules

(Note: Mixed mode, populating DDR2 and DDR3 memory modules simulta- neously is not supported. Go to GIGABYTE's website for the latest supported memory speeds and memory modules.)
------------------
The reason I ask all these question is because I'm trying to make 2+2=4.
Is your motherboard set at default. No over clocking.
Windows 7 receives the information on how much ram is installed from the motherboard.
Thanks for filling in your system specs.
