I've been using this board with OCZ Reapers memory... until stick started to die - but it had nothing to do with a mobo.
From my research when I've had the problem, I would say that board will show less ram than installed either when the memory start to fail or if there is physical damage to the board (socket pins, etc.)

Also I would say it's among the least picky with regard to the memory.

I've been searching a long time for the board, picked this and I don't look back, one great board, brilliant for OC.

I bought an open box P6X58D MB but it would only show 4GB of the 6GB of OCZ Gold I installed. I then installed Corsair and the result was the same, only 4GB. I RMA'd the board (still in progress)and purchased a new one. The new board works fine with the OCZ Gold 6GB.

Thank you for this info i am greatfull

luke997, thank you to you too, i will change my ssd form sata 3 to sata2 after my system has passed (or failed) the burn test.

And i have found out the problem, the power supply.
I took out one of my Gpu's and now it dosn't crash at 15XXMHz which it did befor ( so i concluded that that the power supply is to blame)
Are the Hx850 and the Hx 1000 the same (other than power obviously)?
i will just have to run with one gpu for now.
Currently Stress testing @ 4.2 with h/t on and a little supprised it hasn't crashed yet! i used Xmisery's settings (thank you) And with a little more voltage (that i'm now not sure i needed) Will try to get memory up to 2005Mhz now
thanks to all you have been a great help

The 850HX is newer and from what I understand, is built on a new DSG platform while the 1000HX is on the old PUC platform. From what I've read, while the 850HX isn't the end-all / be-all vs the 1000HX (obviously there's a power difference), it is an all around better unit.

During my numerous GPU waterblock problems this past week, I ran into this exact problem, which I hadn't seen before with this mobo. I was able to remedy the problem by slightly backing off the backplate screws on the Heatkiller CPU block.

When I took the block off during loop maintenance, I noticed that the backplate screws stayed attached to the bottom of the block. When I reattached the block to the mobo, i had a feeling I tightened them a little too tight. Upon posting, I noticed only 2 sticks were recognized. I tested each slot and the 1st slot (closest to CPU) was inop. I backed off the pressure on the screws a 1/4 twist, and voila, the mem slot was recognized.

Obviously, YMMV on this one but anyone who has installed a backplate for CPU cooling might want to check the screws.

Nope. I just landed on that one when I did the attempt, trying for higher tomorrow. Although I was slowing booting @ 4.6 than 4.4, what could fix that? And what do you think the QPI should be at? Any other setting that I might need to modify?

Safe my XMISERY!..(any other member also welcome..)
