259MB Hardware Reserved after installing GTX 760

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,
recently I bought a new Gigabyte GTX 760 Windforce 3 rev2 video card (using the latest beta drivers from nvidia - 331.40) and few days ago I noticed that in the system properties for the ram it says:
Installed memory (RAM): 8.00GB (7.75GB usable) and in the Resource manager there are "259MB Hardware Reserved".

I have an Asus M5A99X EVO REV2.0 mb, AMD FX-8320 and 2 sticks of 4GB Adata ram. At the moment the ram sticks are on slot1 and slot3, but I've tried placing them to slot2 and slot4, as well as exchanging the sticks themselfs (memory in slot1 goes to slot3 and vice versa). I also tried with no virtual memory page, with windows managed page and with custom set, still no go. Restored my BIOS defaults few times and I'm running out of ideas, so I'm asking for some advices. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you!

I will attach a screenshot with few CPU-Zs, resource monitor and system properties.

Does your motherboard support memory remapping aka memory hoisting?

There is Memory Hole Remapping, which I have no idea what it does. Tried with both enabled and disabled states, but it's the same.

That's it. It is a workaround of legacy memory design. Some hardware require memory addresses in the 3.5-4GB range... this trick moves them out of that range.

By default this setting is set to ENABLED in my bios configuration. I disabled it and the hardware reserved memory was bigger - 771MB. Enabled it back again and now hardware reserved memory is 250MB... I will have to choose the lesser between the two evils. smile.gif
