Picture be smarter than me:


How do I get windows to fully utilize this memory, or am I retarded and this is the best its gonna get??

I already tried mixing the sticks around in the slots. CPU-Z as you can see if finding it all there. Bios sees only 20472MB... Windows is seeing 22.3 GB b/c of the "committed" max, so I shouldn't have an issue with a bad slot or a bad stick?

See system specs in signature.

SPECS: 6 x 4GB sticks, memory was bought new out of box off ebay, latest bios (P6T-SE-ASUS-0908.rom) flashed

No specs listed - also list model of the DRAM and if it's a single or multiple packages of DRAM (can make big difference, need mobo, CPU......also go ahead and check if you have the latest BIOS

Updated the bios first thing, that didn't help. Am I right that something isn't right how it only shows 20GB?

Is it a single st or possible two packages of this: BLS3KIT4G3D1609DS1S00

Not familiar with what "single st" means, but that is the exact memory that I have.

Since I have no clue what serial numbers or w/e this shit is on the memory, here are pictures of them if it helps:

your board support 24gb memory..
And 64bit operating system support 128gb..

well, the easiest way, check with CPU-Z..
CPU-Z shows you "triple channel" or something else?

owh...okay..
let me see..
1. clean your "golden brigde" RAM with pencil eraser..
2. try to attach only 3 sticks in 3 slot..and see, if all of your memory detected or not..
3. if yes, then add 3 sticks more to other slot. if not, go to step 4.
4. if it's not success, try to reattached the CPU. Many peoples said it will fix x58 memory problem.

(sorry bout the 'st' was a typo) That appears to be two packages of DRAM the model # is for a 3 stick pack of 4GB sticks....may have a bad stick and that's why it's not usable but showing...since it's 2 sets of DRAM XMP isn't going to work as the needed settings are programmed by the package and while base timings are same, the advanced timings will diff i.e. in particular the tRFC goes up the more sticks involved...would suggest going into BIOS and manually set freq to 1600, go to the base timings (which may show as correct) and typing in the base timings manually (9-9-9-24), set CR (command rate) to 2T manually, and set DRAM voltage to 1.55 and raise the MC (memory controller) voltage, believe QPI/VTT on your mobo, up + 0.07 from current setting
