What does the CPUZ Memory tab say?

Having 8 out of 12 is not good, have you tried re-seating them?
CPUZ sees 12 gigs. I have swapped ram around. My Intel dealer replace the ram. We have sent the motherboard back to Asus, got the same one back. I have tried 3 different bios. Run the bios at default (Auto) and many many o/c and everything I could find on line. Re-seating cpu cooler many times. I can't get over 1600 with the ram because it won't boot trying all kinds of settings. 6X2, 2 sets of matched ram.
As mentioned below in Paul's link, with more than two RAM cards and 4GB RAM or more you might need to bump the integrated memory controller voltage, QPI/DRAM, sometimes the DRAM voltage may need a little bump also.

You can run memtest86+ to test the RAM and motherboard slots.
Have a look at this tutorial.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Run it for 8 full passes, with 12GB RAM this may take more than several hours, best to run overnight.
If you get any errors you can stop the test.
Check your DRAM and QPI/DRAM voltages in your BIOS, let us know what they are and we can suggest a bump.

Post a CPUZ tab snip of the CPU, Mainboard, Memory, and SPD tabs.

Let us know if you have any questions.

6 gigs installed shows up as 4 gigs. The spd 2000
KINGSTON KHX2000C9
I found this, not sure if it works -

i7 930, ASUS P6X58D, 12GB OCZ DDR3 Showing up as 8GB - My fix - Overclock.net - Overclocking.net


Edit, sorry I know its not your memory but the mobo is the same and he had the same issue

Nice speeds! That's a Vengeance kit, right? I'll be getting the CMZ4GX3M2A1600C9 (2x2GB) kit with my next upgrade... In theory it should be pretty close to yours.

Pity about your CPU only supporting 1066/1333 memory speeds. I bet your RAM will outlast your CPU next time you upgrade...

Depends if I upgrade to a ddr3 cpu or not I guess. Thats one reason I havent sold my ddr 8 gig ram I now got spare now tho, so if I do upgrade and then keep this i5 as a secondary system the old 8 gig is still there to use with it.

Although I want vt-d which this hasnt got (wish I got i7-860 now), I dont see why I should bother with sandy bridge, its only 1 gen up. I could overclock to get the ram running at its max speed but this pc is pretty powerful and is enough for what I need it for.

I must admit, I am slightly confused by that... According to this page, the i5-750 is DDR3 1066/1333..? DDR3 slots aren't backwards compatible with DDR2, so if you're currently running DDR3 then your CPU supports it, just not at their full speeds.

That's a valid point... It might change when Ivy Bridge comes out though, according to a note on Wiki, it's expected to have about a 20% increase in CPU power compared to Sandy Bridge... And it's apparently going to be backwards compatible with the Sandy Bridge platform.

I have an i5 750, and am running 1600MHz Ram. I always assumed it was the Motherboard that determined what Ram can be used? A Guy
