Have a new Z87 PRO4 MB. I installed G.Skill memory, 16GB (2x8GB) #F3-12800CL10D-16GBXL. The BIOS is reporting that it is in dual channel mode, but that it has only 4GB (2x2GB) installed. "2048 667MHZ (DDR3-1333) 9-9-9-24"(twice) I know that F3-12800CL10D-16GBXL is not on the compatibility list for the MB, but F3-12800CL10Q-32GBXL is, and G.Skill explicitly lists the Z87-PRO4 as being compatible with #F3-12800CL10D-16GBXL. My understanding is that the two are of the same spec with the single exception that the latter is 4x8 instead of 2x8. Do I really need to pull out the F3-12800CL10D-16GBXL and replace it with something else? Or is there some other setting or configuration I should try to get it to see all 16GB? I have tried putting the memory in slots 0 & 2, as well as in 1 & 3. ANY thoughts, ideas, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. -Gary

More aboutz87 pro4 showing 4gb memory installed
Are you running 64bit Windows? 32bit only addresses about 4GB.
Also possible bent CPU/mobo pin or bad RAM.
Windows OS is not yet loaded on the system. I will be loading Win7 64 bit once Everything in the BIOS appears normal.
Where do you see this value?
"2048 667MHZ (DDR3-1333) 9-9-9-24"
The memory should work fine in that motherboard and show the full 16GB.
