Evga x58 RAM 6GB installed 1.99GB Usable - Page 2

  • Increase Vtt/QPI to 1.30-1.35v.
  • Check MSCONFIG and make sure BOOT Advanced Options → "Maximum Memory" isn't checked.
  • Loosen your CPU cooler.

Ok, I reseated the ram and it now says 2.99 usable of 6gb, I'm sure all the hardware is good, I'll just have to tweak the settings and such. The only on-board thing these boards have is audio and ethernet ports outside of the 10 USB ports

Ok, the system is reading a full functional 6gb of 1600 mhz ram. I'm going to restart and see if that is the end of the problem.

It appears the problem was merely improperly seated ram (Thank the Lord), thank you everyone for your help and suggestions. It's greatly appreciated.
