  1. Hello and welcome to the forums :)
    Please post your full system specs and your OS.Also did you did anything special?(like updating BIOS or tweaking registry)
  2. I'm having the same exact problem. Recently I built a PC. It was showing 6gigs like its supposed to but now its showing only 4gigs. The PC is one week old.

    I7-930 (stock)
    Windows 7 64-bit up to date.
    ASUS P6X58D-E (BIOS Version 0303) second bios release and latest.
    Corsair 850HX
    EVGA GTX480 (stock)
    G.SKILL 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) at stock and shows as 1066 instead of 1333. I read thats normal. It is in the ASUS P6X58D-E list of acceptable RAM.

    I've been able to unplug the RAM and re-plug it and it shows 6GB again, but after a while it shows 4GB. That is after the second or third restart it shows 4GB.


    Any help would be appreciated. THX in advance.
