So basically, my computer works fine, my CPU-Z program detects all 6GB ram, but my Windows & Bios don't. now that's an issue!

My CPU-Z doesn't recognize any NB frequency either.
I've tried every single common way to sort out this problem, totally everything, checking up OS, checking up that all my hardware actually fit, no compability issues... I've update bios, I just can't seem to find the issue, memory remapping everything I've checked, without a result, I did find a thread which ended up in discovery of an crooked pin on the MOBO, may this be the same issue that I have.. Ah yes, I have 2x2GB rams, from Hynix and 2x1GB rams from Micron, all work at 667... I have installed them in a mix, 2GB+1GB / 2GB+1GB, since if I try to slam it like 2GB+2GB / 1GB+1GB, my computer keeps restarting... AH YES! And, on system start up, my bios message said that my RAM is asymmetric, but well CPU-Z is sort of stubborn and says it's symmetric, may the issue rely here?

Thanks for reading!

I had the exact same problem, except only 2gb was recognised. I found out that I bent a few CPU socket pins when inserting the CPU itself. Check that first.

I would try loading them 2GB/2GB 1GB/1GB and go into the bios and see whats going on with Clockspeed and latency timing and try to get them synchronized with Advanced memory timing option or Overclocking menu! If that doesn't work check out your manual and see what it says and give your mainboard maker a call and see whats up m-board might be defective

Yeah, I tried to put them as 2/2 & 1/1, but the computer kept restarting, I can't really understand why, I tried checking the menus and nothing unfortunately worked, guess I gotta call the manufacturer! Thanks for the help! :)

One last thing see if you can update the bios and than try going from 3GB to 6 GB!
July 21, 2010 3:10:16 PM

Aye, I updated Bios to the latest version, no luck there, I called the manufacturer and they suspect a crooked pin, I presume I have to get a magnifier glass, a led light & a flat scredriver ready... Thanks for the help! :D

One more thing are you mixing gold and tin contacts which leads to corossion, if not I would stress test mainboard dimms or Ram sandrasoft is free and benchmarks with full cycle load from www.guru3d.com Last resort sell everything on ebay at a discount or goto geek squad!
