Default TR3X6G1600C7 Windows 7 10GB not 12GB


I recently purchased 2x TR3X6G1600C7(6GB) kits and it appears that once I bring the RAM up to 1600MHZ, 2GB is not recognised at POST or in windows 7 64bit and only 10GB is seen, although CPU-Z and other apps such as PCMARK VANTAGE still show 12GB.

However when I bring down the FSB a bit from 160 to 150 so the RAM is 1500 with a 2:10 ratio, then the full 12GB is seen again. I would of gotten a 12GB kit but the retailer I got the RAM from only sold the 6GB with the better timings.

Is it worth taking 6GB out and trying both 2x6GB sets at 1600 and see which shows 4GB @ 1600 and which one is fine and shows 6GB.

It seems to me that it's a dodgy memory stick. Do you recommend to RMA the faulty 6GB Kit?
