    Great, and are you comparing your scores with the ones on the left? If so, what category are the results on the left for? Do you know what memory speed was used for the results on the left?

    Quite simple actually, I ruined a socket 775 board I was using, and wanted a replacement, but did not want to spend the money on an expensive board.

    A local PC retailer, Micro Center, had one of their usual deals, the ASR Z77 EX 4 for $90 when purchased with an i5-3570K for $190. So the total for both was $280. Quite a deal, and I'm not lying about the prices.

    The EX 4 has the CMOS clear button on the back panel too. Firewire does not matter to me, I have it on other PCs, but I don't have any devices that use it.

    Notice the speed in the screen shot against memory type. it runs at 2134 Mhz.
    One more thing, my memory shows 31.9 GB usable. Why does it shows so. It used to show full memory with AMD rig. Is it because XMP ?

    Yes nice memory speed, most memory will only run at its rated speed, and no more. There really are some new very high speed types of memory coming out, Corsair has one that is rated at 3000

    The 31.9 GB useable display, I don't know, what is showing that? What does Windows or the UEFI show for memory size?

    XMP (really XMP data) is just an extension of the JEDEC memory settings, designed by Intel. It does not use up memory, XMP data is stored in the SPD data area, which is not used by the PC as memory.

    XMP data is used to store the fastest memory settings the manufacture states the memory can achieve. But to make sure that high speed memory will work on more PCs, or the first time you put it in your PC, the default memory settings are slower, just to be safe, so the PC will always start. Then to make it simple to get the memory running at its highest speed, you can select XMP in the BIOS, and the board will use those settings for the memory, instead of the slower default settings. If a PC cannot work at the higher speed and BSODs, it will switch back to the default speed settings. Less trouble for everyone.

    It might be because you have the maximum amount of memory your board can use, 32 GB.

    What does Windows Resource Monitor show in the Memory tab?

    That's good, must have been a memory leak earlier...

    It could be worse, someone posted about why they only saw 3GB out of 8GB installed... (32 bit Windows... )
