Question memory problem


I have an i7 920 intel processor on a Asus P6T Deluxe motherboard with 3x2 Gb corsair dominator memory modules at 1600MHz (windows 7 ultimate). Recently I got a system crash (blue screen) and I found out that one of my memory modules does not work anymore so i removed it. Funny thing I noticed that on boot up the memory count now showed 4088 Mb and not 4096 Mb as it should (since i got left with 2x2Gb). Even in the windows task manager it shows 4088Mb, i.e 8 Mb less of what it should show!
I ran a memtest and it passed twice. I even ran 10 reps of Lin X and it passed.

I got new memory modules corsair vengeance 2x4Gb since 4Gb were not enough for me and again on boot up the memory count shows 8184Mb and not 8196Mb.

So with 2 different memory modules BIOS and windows task manager show 8Mb less!

Does anyone know why is this happening? Is it a motherboard or cpu problem?
