Default Xms3 hx3x12g1600c9 & cmx4gx3m2a1600c9

Two Motherboards: ASUS P6T7 WS Bios Version American Megatrends Inc., 1001 12/24/2010 SM Bios Ver 2.5
Intel I7 Core 975 33.33GHz 3334MHz 4 Core(s), 8 Logical
XMS3 DDR3 Dimms 3 each board: Corsair HX3X12G1600C9 1600MHz Vdimm = 1.60V 9-9-9-24 Blue slots A1B1C1
Not recommended to fill all slots A1A2B1B2C1C2 due to overvoltage draw damaging CPU

Four Motherboards: ASUS P7QP57-M DO Bios Version American Megatrends Inc., 404 1/6/2010 Ver 2.61 1202
Intel I7 Core 860 2.8GHz 2800 MHz 4 Core(s), 8 Logical
XMS3 DDR3 Dimms 2 each board: Corsair CMX4GX3M2A1600C9 1600MHz Vdimm = 1.65V 9-9-9-24 Blue Slots A1B1, also tried filling slots x4 A1A2B1B2 Black and Blue
X58 Platforms

Bios recognizes all VDIMMs as 2G even though 6 of them are 12GB each and 8 of them are 4GB each of Mem.
BIOS set to XMP Profile one that matched Dimms but still see 2gb dimms. I tried manual setting many values to what has been posted on websites in the past with no avail, still 2GB recognized. Setting to AUTO same thing.
Does Corsair have a known working profile that I can download and load into bios or is there a known working XMP setup that I can print out and set?
This problem has always existed upon initial build of computers in 2010. I spent a small fortune ending in much less desirable results than expected.

Are you asking why they're showing up as 2 GB sticks? If so, this is because that's what they are.

HX3X12G1600C9 is a 12GB Kit (6 x 2GB). Each stick is 2 GB, not 12 GB.


CMX4GX3M2A1600C9 is a 4GB Kit (2 x 2GB). Each stick is 2 GB, not 4 GB.
