Hey,

I'm having a bit of trouble with my new system. I just built my new PC. The main components are:
i7 950
GTX580
OCZ GOLD 1600 6GB
ASUS Sabertooth x58

For some reason, when I check BIOS, the system information page shows only 2GB of ram. Thinking thatthe other two are DOA, I requested an RMA. However, to double check, I ran a few tests, and CPU-Z says that it found all 3 sticks. However, it's saying it's Single channel instead of triple.

Here's the log from CPU-Z

Be certain the memory voltage is set to whatever is required for your memory modules (to function with particular 1666 MHz timings) per the manufacturer, but, should be able to set most other functions to autodetect. (Not every stick will run at 1666 MHz effective with default voltage...try setting mem speed to 1333 if necessary to figure out what the issue might be..)

Be certain the modules are in the correct 3 slots per your MB documentation, and that the MB's BIOS is configured correctly for triple channel...

You can test each memory module in the single slot known to function.

Alright, so I got the RAM working, windows is showing 6GB, as well as the system info section of BIOS. In bios, I set it so the ram would be at 1600MHz, but once I do that, it asks me if it wants me to keep the volts at normal, or auto increase them. I hit auto,and it increased to 1.47v. I booted into windows, and it only showed 4GB. I reset to default settings in bios, and windows began to show 6GB again. Is this a common issue?...
