Memory module reporting incorrectly


Recommended Posts

Hi, I purchased a 16gb quad channel kit for use in my new X-79 system part # CMZ16GX3M4X1866C9 . I notice that in BIOS and in Windows the memory is only reporting as 14333 instead of the full 16gb. I tried reseating all of the memory modules and resetting the CMOS with no luck. I individually tested each module and was able to find the one stick that wasn't reporting correctly. I tried the stick in different slots on the motherboard but it always shows up as 2gb. The system posts with no issues and I even played games for a week before I discovered the error. I have had no instability or crashes caused by the faulty module. Is there anything else I can try to correct the problem or is this just a faulty memory module? I did receive a case # from corsair support a few days ago but haven't heard back from them yet. Thanks for any help.
