Having some issues on having all 12 GB of Mem. Sticks working.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am currently using a MSI X-58 Pro-E Motherboard, along with 6 x 2GB RAMs from TeamXtreme Dark series (CL 8-8-8-24).
At first after putting them in, my system reads at 4GB instead of 12.
After updated to the latest BIOs, my reading goes to 8GB instead of 12.


Anyone help?

thanks =)

Remove the CPU cooler, remove the CPU. Tighten down the metal socket bracket. Replace the CPU and HSF. I've had this issue before on a couple motherboards and this usually fixes it.

If it still won't recognize all the RAM and you know for a fact that all the RAM is good, you have a bad motherboard. I've had to RMA a couple before and if tightening the socket doesn't work, RMAing the MoBo has fixed it.

Ok i tried to reinsert them after having some contact cleaner on it and it shows good reading.

However i have another set of 12GB worth of RAM that i test out but only reads 4GB thus far.

RAM faulty?

Faulty RAM is more likely to crash a PC or make it not boot rather than not show up. Poor contact on the RAM (improper seating) or poor contact on the socket (which my suggestion fixes) are the more likely cause. I have seen this issue FREQUENTLY with x58 motherboards - it's to the point where when I start a new build, the first thing I do is tighten down the metal retention bracket as tight as safely possible before I put the CPU in it.

It can also be the VTT voltage, more memory usually needs a VTT voltage bump or you can get disappearing memory.

In addition to the suggestions posted already, try loosening subtimings like tRFC and round trip latency. What works for three DIMMs does not always work for more.
