If he was it would only see 3.something GB of ram.

We need more information from him.
1.6 QPI will kill a some chips, I have done it. 1.6 on the Vdimm is another story.
I think someone has the volt's crossed.

It should still see all the RAM but only read about 3.5 of it.

I was under the mistaken impression due to fried brain cells that Win 7 - 32 saw 8gs of ram. But if its the bios not seeing it, memtest 1 stick at a time.

No one has wires crossed dude.. don't know what you did wrong.. or weak chip or didn't retain the .5 ratio perhaps or most likely.. 1.6 'should' not kill an I7.. but definately (99%) not a 950 or above as this is well established..

too many ppl are going off 'old' news and not facts.. not saying your wrong just that when ppl say 1.6qpi is nuts, well in reality they either don't have a clue and are most regurgitating others.. which is more often than not weak as piss when facts don't support it. Every single architectural revision such things happen

i am sorry but no one will tell anyone to push 1.6v through their QPI/vtt unless they are going for DDR3 2000mhz with 12gb of ram. You push 1.6v through your chips memory controller?

Okay Let me provide folks with as much info as I can to see if this helps. I have 6 identical 2GB sticks that appear to be operational. When I boot into windows it tells me that 12 GBs are detected but only 8 are available. In the bios the qpi/Vtt Voltage is 1.175 and the DRAM Voltage is 1.5. Should I up it and see if the memory is detected? Thanks again folks I'm still learning.

LOL, take it easy, I just thought you meant Vdimm. I did nothing wrong other then push the chip to hard and it had a crappy IMC.
I don't think 1.6 is nuts but it's not what I would run for 24/7 use, not worth it IMO.

Edit: nbat, start by setting your RAM timings and recommended volt's for the RAM. Bump QPI to 1.2 or normal.

my lord yes, not to 1.6v on the qpi/vtt but more like 1.25v just to get all the RAM detected. 1.2v is needed for 1600mhz for 6gb kits, so if you want to get your RAM upto spec i am sure 1.35v for qpi/vtt will be enough.

That is if the voltage is the problem, you probably need to increase the Dram voltage to 1.66v.

I have had that detection thing and actual thing happen to me, i had to remount the CPU block/cooler.

You don't recommend 1.6v through the qpi/vtt to anyone know doesn't know exactly what they are doing. Especially someone who is just trying to get their RAM detected.

People say 1.5-1.6v is ok for qpi/vtt because that is what they bench at, plus RAM manufacturers say that to cover their asses because Intel has crappy IMCs inside the whole i7 X58 lineup. Except my 990x has a great IMC.

Also just to add to the frustration...often the system will boot three times after it posts giving me the following error..."Recovering lost DRAM size". Following the 3 boots I am able to get to Windows 7.
