Hey guys. Im back with another concern. I have 4GB of DDR3 G. Skill Ripjaw 1333 ram. On window7 x64 OS. But when i right click my computer>properties the ram shows up as

RAM: 4GB (3.75 usable)

Why does it not read the full 4GB am running and 64bit OS? Have i done anything wrong?

no that is entirely normal dont worry about it, it means that windows 7 is using up .25 Gb or 250 Mb of RAM. That is entirely normal.

Mobo- Asus M4A785TD-V EVO
RAM- 4GB G. Skill Ripjaw DDR3 1333
PSU- OCZ Modxstream 600watts
Case- Antec 300

2 fans for the front of the case

Oh one other thing the tools that come with the modo. cd like turbo V and cool n' quite and etc. do i need to install them? are there anyother programs that do the same thing better that i should get? and do i have to have them start up when i boot my computer?

if you install them then i think you can control fans and leds and stuff like that. that is a very good build and i don't think you really need to do anymore :)
