Mobo Wont Detect All Installed Ram


I currently just finished a new build, and I am having issues getting my current mobo to detect all 8g of ram. Windows is only seeing 4 and I have no idea where to start in diagnosing this issue. Iv read issues specific to the motherboard, but it could be something else.

Mobo: ASUS Rampage IV Gene LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Ram: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (4 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL8Q-8GBRM

Where should I start?

  1. Ok, we don't currently care what Windows sees, lets worry about what your motherboard sees in the bios.
  2. You could start by making sure your PC is running a 64-bit version of a Windows product greater than XP Home! ;) Windows 32-bit can only address 4GB of RAM.
