Here's the problem. BIOS only recognizes 4GB RAM, Windows 7 64bit on displays 4GB. CPU-z shows 6GB but only running in double chanel. The RAM is OCZ "TRIPLE CHANNEL" RAM. Any Ideas how to fix this..

Also, while I'm not new to computers, I haven't built a machine in about 5 years and I've never OC'd. Any help is appreciated..
I've had a same problem and done a tons of research so try out this:

1) As DOM said - bent pins on CPU socket.
If you don't like to spread TIM again, leave this step as last and start with (2)

2) Boot PC with 1 stick at a time. If any doesn't work - memory faulty, RMA (this was the case for me)

3) Boot PC with 2 sticks in different slots, change. If certain slot doesn't see it - it might be some bent pins in the DIMM slot or just faulty memory slot - check (4)

4) Loosen a bit screws on CPU cooler. Overpressure caused the problem for some

5) Check if your cooler's backplate (or anything else) is not shorting on the back of your mobo

6) Last, but not least, try to change CPU clock skew from auto to 100, 200, up to 500ps.
In certain cases, the default mobo setting doesn't work with certain memory.
Very rare but worth a shot before sending mobo/ram...

Just ordered this board and I see Dominators are a pretty popular choice for this mobo. What is another good choice that is a bit cheaper? I would like to stay around the $150 - $175 range (U.S.). I have used GSkill in the past with success, but am not a fanboy of any manufacturer.

Thanks!

I made sure that I was extraordinarily careful when installing the CPU and I checked to socket pretty well. It should be fine. Will try reseating the RAM and checking the mounting screws and the CPU mounts. That could be the problem but we'll see. This is a new build and I finished putting it all together last night.

I'm also thinking that I need to press the MemOK button and let the mobo do its thing to test/configure the RAM. From what I've read that could also fix the problem. Also, after installing the mobo, I had to remove a stick of RAM that was in the socket closet to the edge of the board. I may not have reseated it right, so I'll check that one first.

This will just reset BIOS settings to safer ones, but it'll help only if you've played with the settings (been there . No harm trying though

That's weird. This should get your vcore to max 1.288v under load and 0.96v when idle. What volts CPU-Z shows for you?
Perhaps you've typed 0.25000 instead of 0.02500? This would give you ~1.5v and high temps.

I get 79 max on hottest core and ~63 on CPU (on this reading 67.9 is intel spec for long life operation), though I have H50 push/pull with shrouds, it is in exhaust and under desk in the corner of the room so not the best circulation.

Thanks to BlackDragon24 I've started playing with this settings, basically it allows CPU to decrease voltage when idle which greatly reduces temps on idle.
