I Just put together a new system and I cant utilize the 8 gig of memory that I installed... I'm hoping there's a workaround for this.
Here's the system.
Intel I7 860 2.8GZ
Asus P7P55D-E Pro Motherbord
G.Skill Ripjaws Series 4x2GB DDR3 1600 (12800CL7D-4GBRH)
ATI Firepro V4800 GPU
Intel X25-M SSD
In the BIOS only 4 gig is recognized, Under system information in Win7 64bit, 8 gig is listed with only 4 gig listed as usable. The manual for the motherboard states that " acording to Intel spec definition, DDR3 1600 is supported for one dimm per channel only. Asus exclusivley provides two DDR3-1600 DIMM support for each memory channel." it then refers to the Ai Overclock Tuner in the BIOS. I did change settings around in that section but still could'nt get the full 8 gig to register in the BIOS. Honestly I'm not familiar with settings for Over Clocking.
I'm hoping some one here can help me with the settings to get the full 8 gig utilized.
