I see in an earlier post you had the same problem with another set of memory modules. Did you build this system and if so recently or did it work for awhile and you added more RAM?

last time i put in 8g ram and then it was unstable as **** but showed 6g ram, so same problem there with 2g not being useable : / atleast the pc is stable as long as i dont play BF or MoH :P but would be nice to not pay for a set ammount and always miss out on that tiny extra bit that u need :P

This seems to be a problem with your slot.

could be, but forgot to mention when i tried with 8 i used another motherboard aswell, the reason i changed was cause i got a new cooler motherboard 4 free and with the dimms cause my friend tol me 8gig is not for intel proccesors.

What bothers me is that all the parts i use right now are all new and all put in at the same time, shouldnt be broken when i get it : S

I have read somewhere some things bout voltages and such could be the bad guy in the drama and that you could change ur values to make it work?

Did you build the system though? X58 motherboards have a problem wherein if the CPU and/or heatsink fan are not correctly installed that can cause problems with the memory controller resulting in less memory appearing. The following link can give you more ideas to look into but the seating of the CPU and fastening of the CPU heatsink/fan are the first culprits to look into. Keep in mind that although the article concerns overclocking that is not necessary to have this problem.

Yes i built the system, checking the seatings of the heatsink etc is something ive done many times, the heatsink also uses plastic thingy to stick to the motherboard so should be a problem there, I got no idea about all the volt stuff other than that the dimms currently runs on 1.5.

Damn this problem seams much harder to fix than i expected

If you're not overclocking then the voltage shouldn't be a problem and you could set in the BIOS for it to use Default settings, but I suspect that's how you're running it anyway. What do you mean by "the heatsink also uses plastic thingy to stick to the motherboard so should be a problem there"? Did you use the stock Intel cooler and heatsink in this build? If not, what heatsink/cooler brand and model?

i linked a picture of it, what i ment was that there are plastic pluggs for installing this big boy meaning no actuall metall is touching the motherboard (should not be a problem there*** in previous post)

What is the brand and model number of the memory modules you're using? You checked the Asus Qualified Vendors List and matched the memory modules with that correct?
