Windows 7: RAM 3.25GB usable of 6GB after overclocking Q6600 to 3.60GHz

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1, 64-bit

The only other memory settings I can think of to play around with would be the "max memory" checkbox in msconfig/boot/advanced options and maybe a BIOS setting for memory mapping.

That and swapping the sticks around in the slots.

I suppose the fact that you don't have 4 identical sticks could mean something as well.
