Hi all, got a problem with my Asusx58 mobo. My system is as follows, X58 mobo Core i7950 6gb Corsair CMX6GX3M3A16009C ram Vortex SSD Fenrir cooler Win 7 64bit CPU-Z only recognises 4gb ram as does Windows. CPU-Z only sees the ram in slots 1 and 3 but not 5. This is apparently a common problem with these mobos so sent it back to Scan computers who said "yes" a faulty board si eventually sent me a new board. Rebuilt it all - fired it up and guess what? Same problem, now they are saying send mobo,processor and RAM back. Dont really want to do this yet. Has anybody got any ideas before i reluctantly send it all back?

Hi and welcome to Tom's forum.
Run CMD>write MSCONFIG and hit enter>boot tab>advance options>see if the "max RAM allowed" is checked, if it's, unchecked and reboot the rig.
