ok, i have an update. after flashing the BIOS on my A8N32-SLI Deluxe to the 1405 beta i still wasn't able to get the BIOS to report 4 GB as usable, so i enabled the memory remapping and it sees it now. my question now is, does leaving the memory remapping enabled have any detrimental effects on the system? I'd hate to have to turn it off, but i can't find any other way to get BIOS to recognize all 4 GB as being available for use (I paid for it dammit, i want to use it, after 2 years its high time too).

I don't see where it says it will have any negative effects. Glad you got it sorted.

@dcommand3r I'm not sure as to why you would clear prefetch data, it's a good thing, really.

Anyways.. after a clean install of the 64-bit version of Windows 7, I booted up and clocked the memory usage at 700~800MB. Now that I've been using W7 for a month or so, the needs have grown, and it boots up with 950MB of memory being used. I've never actually seen W7 go beyond 2GB, considering my Vista install boots up to 1.2GB.

I'm not sure if this affects my memory, but I do have a 1GB ReadyBoost implementation in place, alongside my 8GB of memory.

I haven't disabled any core features of W7, either :P

I do know its real though I cant remember where I grabbed it from.
They were talking about mutiple installs etc.

16 columns multiplied by 16 rows yields 256 processors.

They're not running Windows 7, as W7 only supports up to 64 logical processors -- however, Windows Server 2008 does support up to 256 logical processors (which they're most likely running)
