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.
