X58 sabertooth board

Hey i recently built a computer (about 3 weeks ago) and i've had a specific problem being that my computer is only recognizing 2gb of ram out of the 6 that i've installed.

Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 950 @ 3.07 GHz 3.07 GHz
windows 7 64bit
x58 sabertooth motherboard.
and i physically installed patriot memory 1600mhz
I've run some troubleshoots and so far i'm thinking that it must be my motherboard or ram. i called the memory company and asus, the asus employee was absolutely no help at all and the patriot tech support said that it's possible that its a defective piece which it could be but i wanted some advice from other people before i send in for a new piece.

P.S when i press the memory ok button on the motherboard it does read 6gb of ram for about an hour and then in thin air it just changes to 2gb.

  1. What does it say in the BIOS? The chances are that it's bad RAM and you should if possible, get a refund/replacement. If under warranty of course.

    Is it dual-channel? Tri-channel?
  2. I use that board in my gaming machine, that I just upgrade, and one of the first things I did was go to the Asus support page and look up what memory to use from their QVL.
    this is what I'm using with no problems http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145295
