I got 3x2 GB Corsair Dominator GT 2000 MHz
The model is: CMG6GX3M3A2000C8
CPU-Z says that all slots are populated and recognizes 12288 bytes of my wonderfull DDR3 Memory.
But Windows says noooooo... You only got 10 GB, sucker....
Windows 7... 64-Bit
This is driving me nutts....
I tried reseating the CPU and looked for bent or broken pins... Nothing wrong as I could see...
I tried fooling around with the voltage, but the only change that happend was a drop down to 8 GB... so I put it back to Auto mode...
Any suggestions how to fix this?
If more info on my system is needed:
CPU: Intel core i7-930
MB: Asus Rampage Extreme 3
GPU: 2x XFX 5970 Black Editions
PSU: Corsair HX 1000 W
OS: Windows 7 64-bit
HDD:2x Corsair Force SSD 120GB - Raid 0
HDD: 2X Velociraptor 300 GB
Also got one 1 TB WD for backups....
Please don´t bother to say "whatcha gonna do with 12 GB stupid?"
I got my reasons
A portion of the memory is reserved to manage system/motherboard resources. While 2GB seems like a lot, it may be spot on given the large number of devices you have installed. Have you run memtest to verify all of your RAM is good? If not, do so.
I theorize all will check out and that you are fine as is. Good luck!
Hey, just to add that Windows by default indeed have mem caps. So even if you have 256 GB of memory, Windows will still cap it at 10 GB, reserving 246 GB of hardware reserved portion. I heard you have to change a setting somewhere.
