CMZ8GX3M2A1866C9 Showing only half memory.. and the default frequency is 1333MHz


Recommended Posts

Purchased New memory a week back.. CMZ8GX3M2A1866C9

Installed on a Asus Sabertooth 990FX (Found this memory in the QVL of motherboard) with AMD FX-8350. PSU- GS700


I installed Windows 7 64 bit version, and checked in on with the system properties in MY COMPUTER, it showed only 4.0 GB RAM.


In the BIOS setup it shows 4028MB and the speed displayed is 1333MHz.. :confused:







Wat possibly could be the reason ? any solutions ? :[pouts:

So will this manual setting be considered as overclocking ? I'm concerned because of the fact that i wont be able to claim any warranty if in case in future something happens to my RAM sticks as by definition i would have overclocked it !!

No it would not void your memory warranty.


You would need to apply more than 2.0v to them to do so ,that is the max the memory can handle before voiding the warranty or causing damage to them, but you would fry your CPU long before you would the memory.


You might still have to set the voltage a little higher than what is on the label, but it's not going to be enough to hurt the memeoy or the CPU.
