hello,
i have Foxconn flamingblade gti, i7 930 and corsair xms3(3x2gb),
the problem is when run my system bios detect only 4gb from ram, when system load w7x64 says 6gb (3.99gb usable)
on resource monitor tool its say

available 1700MB
cached 1528MB
total 4087MB
installed 6144MB

hardware reserved 2057MB

(cpu-z also say 6GB installed)

any idea how i can make my bios initialize all 6GB ram, i got flashed it to the last available version but is still the same problem... :??:

a bent pin on the motherboard (remember LGA 1366 has the pins on the motherboard) can cause a loss of memory like this

Could be that or improperly installed RAM or a dead stick. My ASUS mobo only has 1 tab on the RAM slots so it detected 2gb out of 4gb and hardware showed a large reserve... reinstalled RAM and it was fixed.
