I just added 2 more 1 gig modules of Corsair XMS 4000pt to my Asus P4P800-E Deluxe for a total of 4 gigs of ram and ran into a few problems. First of all the bios only detected 3 Gig of ram instead of 4. This isn't so much of a problem because I read in the manual for the motherboard that this is normal because of some (southbridge allocation). All the ram is still detected in programs like CPU-Z.....4096 mb of system ram. The problem I noticed is that the system is seriously slower since I've added the two extra modules. All the ram is exact matched pairs. Do you think I could be having a problem with the memory controller, and if so how could I go about solving this problem? Thanks.
