6GB recognized as 4GB


Recommended Posts



So I am having the same issue as a lot of other people. My system only recognizes 4 out of 6gb when the system initially boots up. The full 6GB is recognized after rebooting. This is best described in this thread: http://vip.asus.com/forum/view.aspx?id=20100320081356828&board_id=1&model=P6T&SLanguage=en-us&page=1


I ran Memtest86+ and it checked out fine. I tested each DIMM in each slot (A1, B2, C2). I reseated the heat sink, checked for bent pins, and everything checked out. I've now narrowed the issue down to the RAM frequency; the issue goes away after setting it to 1066MHz.


Is this a case of defective RAM? The product sheet states that it is "100% tested at 1333MHz in X58-based motherboards."


Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
