Wonder if anyone on here can give me some advice. I upgraded my RAM today on the following setup:
Asus Maximus III Formula
Intel i7 875K @ 2.9 Ghz
Win 7 Pro 64 bit
I bought the G.Skill Sniper F3-14900CL9-8GBSR 16 gig package but here is the catch. My OS only detects 8 gig installed. Also CPU-Z only detects 8 gig installed.
Another funny thing is that the Part Number listed for the memory under the SPD tab in CPU-z states that it is a F3-14900CL9-4GBSR installed.
So my question is the following:
1) Is there a setting that I have to set that the RAM detection is correct?
2) Could it be that the RAM itself is not the same as stated on the packaging. That I was sold a 8 gig package instead of the 16 gig package?
I have turned on the XMP profile and disabled the Max memory in the msconfig setup.
Yea, it sounds like you got hosed there. You should be able to see the size of each chip printed on the modules if you look around. Your motherboard does support that much ram, though I'm not positive if it supports 8gb chips. Those are pretty new.
