Hello. I have 6GB of ocz ram that I recently purchased. When I check my computer settings it only states that I have 2gb of ram. I reinserted the ram sticks and nothing changed.
What do I do? How do I get my computer to read 6gb of ram?

intel i7 950
850 corsair power supply
ocz ssd 60gb
wd velociraptor 150gb

I think you forgot to mention the mobo and the exact model number of your triple channel kit

Your ram checks out fine in the Qualified Vendor List, yet your only seeing 2GB running...has the rams been properly inserted?
the rams should run in either the beige slots or the brown slots to run in tripple channel slots.
The ram modules could be faulty, RMA them...or if you'd want a swap
CORSAIR DOMINATOR GT 6GB 1600MHz
Mushkin Enhanced Redline Ridgeback 6GB 1600MHz
OCZ XMP Edition Black 6GB 1600MHz
I'd look at the G.skill or Corsair
