I've never encountered this issue with any other of my computers.
So are you saying that if you wanted the 4GB to show up, you'll have to manually change the timings, DIMM voltage, and DIMM clocks?

I just changed the dram timings in the bios from auto to the rated speed, then it showed up 4gb i windows.

Voltage, etc is set on auto.

I'm still really nervous about what I have to do. I'm almost positive it's a bad ram slot because of what I posted earlier. Problem is it's going to suck to have to RMA the MB and wait for a new one, then on top of that have to install everything again. Arrggh

every time I hit windows+pause/break the "usable" ram goes lower. and lower. and lower. it's at 2.37 now. Was at 2.75. Was at 6gb. >.<

hmm, had a look around and this problem seems to only affect Intel systems.. so most likely it's got something to do with the on Die memory controller which was introduced with the i7 CPU, AMD having had an on Die Memory controller in their CPU's for years maybe have more experience in this department.. i may be wrong, I'd like to see if RMA'ing the mainboard fixes this issue..

Hey man I ve just got a I5 2.8 system, Asus Mobo, had the same issue 4 gb installed 2gb usable tried everything update bios, MSCONFIG unticked, mem remap on in bios nothing worked. Removed CPU pins were damaged/bent straighted them as best as possible. now have 3.49Gb usable. I have seen this fix mentioned in other forums hope it helps

My friend got an x58 mobo and had the same issue(but saw 4 instead of 6gb). turned out to be a bad slot.
