Asus rampage II gene ( can go up to 12 gb ram)
intel i7 920
6x - Corsair XMS3 TW3X4G1333C9DHX 4GB DDR3 Dual Channel memory kit
gts 250 1 gb
2x Western Digital WD1001FALS Caviar Black 1TB

So if anybody can help me solve the problem I'm very thankful for it.

Type msconfig in run or search - in the window - boot - advanced options - make sure "maximum memory" is deselected. If this sounds a bit weird - check bios first as below, and maybe select it if that doent fix it - i read this solution a while back, and Im not sure which way, but it is deselected in my OS.

If it is already deselected go into your bios - this is where it is in my Asus P5E bios as follows.
There is a setting in the bios - that should be set to enabled with a 64 bit OS - under chipset advanced - northbridge configuration - memory remap feature - enable this - worth checking.

I'm not really sure, because there are certain websites thats says it supports 12 gb ram or even 24 gb or ram. So right now I have 12 gb ram on my motherboard but it only appears 8 gb ram

Other than the standard 32 / 64 bit limits for windows, Windows 7 basic is 8GB limit, Windows 7 Home Prem. ib 16GB limit, you need Windows 7 Pro to Ultimate to Use anything from 16GB to 192GB AND I have the Asus P5E MO also the only way I could get the board to reg. my full 24GB was to use all standard presets and not save anything not even a bios password. The minute you make a saved change the Memory would only register 16GB.

24GB DDR3 Ram, Core i7 970 and only a HD5670??? something is NOT right here..

With the money you used to buy 18GB of RAM, you'd have bought a GTX 580 and still having a kick a** PC!

And probably a SSD, but hey, who am i to judge?
