Thanks. I'm going to try reorganizing the RAM and putting them in different slots. By the way, CPU-Z recognizes my 8GB of RAM but Windows does not.
I tried putting three of my four sticks into the three black slots and it wouldn't even boot. I then put them into the three red slots and it booted but still could only detect 4GB (CPU-Z still detected the correct amount however).
I'm going to keep trying to figure out a way but I'm really stumped here :s
Thats an interesting issue. I can't be the help you need unfortunately as I am still using Vista and a 775 socket system so I'm not familiar with the issues with the newer stuff, yet.
Some of the other guys should have some good input. Good luck!
