Hello everyone.
I put my computer together and installed 6gb of ram. I go into dxdiag to check things out, and I'm only getting 2gb. I ran the Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool and nothing was found to be wrong.

My setup is as follows:

G.SKILL PI Series 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7T-6GBPI

Intel Core i7-930 Bloomfield 2.8GHz 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80601930

GIGABYTE GV-N460OC-1GI GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 1-Pack for System Builders - OEM

This is my first build so I probably made a mistake a long the way. I'm going to check the mobo tomorrow to make sure the all the sticks are firmly in place where they should be.
If they are, I'm uncertain as to what my next step should be.
I'd appreciate any advice.

Thank you,
