Asus MemOk!:

The P7P55D-E Pro's manual describes MemOk! as follows:
MemOk! is the fastest memory booting solution today. This remarkable memory rescue tool requires nothing but a push of a button to patch memory issues and get your system up and running in no time. This technology is able to determine failsafe settings that can dramatically improve your system booting success.
That's an interesting claim and a potentially useful feature. Memory compatibility is nowhere near as problematic as it used to be, but issues can still crop up from time to time. Buyers who jumped on the P35+DDR3 wagon train back in 2007 and paid top-dollar for the privilege are ironically the group most likely to have problems today. Asus has published a video demonstrating how MemOk! resolves compatibility problems as linked below.



We set out to determine whether or not MemOk! made a difference when mixing various kinds of DDR3, but were unable to create a boot failure in the first place. Even when stuffed with a mixed set of 1GB and 2GB DIMMs with different SPD settings and built by four different manufacturers, the motherboard booted into Windows without a hiccup. This is, of course, exactly what we want the motherboard to do, but we were hoping to find a scenario that allowed us to test MemOk's ability to resolve RAM incompatibilities. Absent of this, we can't comment on MemOk! one way or the other. If you're partial to Asus and have some old DDR3 it's a feature you might want on a new board, but we can't guarantee it'll make a difference, either.

definition of rammap from Mark Russinovich and Bryce Cogswell

Have you ever wondered exactly how Windows is assigning physical memory, how much file data is cached in RAM,
or how much RAM is used by the kernel and device drivers? RAMMap makes answering those questions easy.
RAMMap is an advanced physical memory usage analysis utility for Windows Vista and higher.
It presents usage information in different ways on its several different tabs:

Use Counts: usage summary by type and paging list
Processes: process working set sizes
Priority Summary: prioritized standby list sizes
Physical Pages: per-page use for all physical memory
Physical Ranges: physical memory addresses
File Summary: file data in RAM by file
File Details: individual physical pages by file
Use RAMMap to gain understanding of the way Windows manages memory, to analyze application memory usage,
or to answer specific questions about how RAM is being allocated.
RAMMap’s refresh feature enables you to update the display and it includes support for saving and loading memory snapshots.

cant think why you have checked everything can you run one stick in one slot on its own ? then take that out and run the other on its own to see how windows allocates the ram?
