To check your DIMM slots, leave the first module in, and take the other 2 out. Then boot up your computer. Run Prime95 "Blend" test, through the 1024K (1st test), if it passes, move that module to the next DIMM slot, boot up and rerun the test.

You will be testing slots 1, 3, & 5>>>or 2, 4, & 6
Which ever your using.

To check your memory, pull all but 1 memory module, boot up, and run Prim95 "Blend" test for 2 hours. If that stick passes 2 hours with no errors, then take that stick out and test the next one.
Repeat this with all 3 sticks, and ya, I know this will take some time. Sorry bout that!

I'd either say you have a bad DIMM slot, or a bad memory module.

If thats the case why does it sometimes read all of it? Like sometimes it reads FULL 12gb with no problem...

Thats the nature of bad hardware, it may work now, but may not the next time it's booted up, thats why testing needs to be done to determine what is the culprit. Some others here may know of a quicker way to test your memory, to see if you have anything bad.

Best of luck to ya!

For now it seems to be running without error.... next time it goes to "usable" i might just have to do that... thanks man!
