    Question fatality killer

    is it possible that the fatality killer has 1/2 of my physical ham locked down as "hardware reserved" ?????????????

    it looks as if f-stream tuner has hardware reserved ram

    for me to lose 16 gigs of ram is grievous, and i do not care how or what i have to do to stop it, it needs to be done now!

    ASRock has at least seven Fatality Killer mother board models, you'll need to be much more specific before we can start.

    Your PC's specs would be a big help too, such as CPU and OS version.

    It seems you have 32GB of RAM, and literally 16GB is shown in Resource Monitor as Hardware Reserved? Do you have a RAM disk created in F-Stream?

    the specs r up, the ones that are relitive to our situation at least

    no ram disks
    i have uninstalled the kraken software and run the system with the kracken usb interface unplugged, so i know it cant be that

    the 2 video cards i used b4 and never had this problem, so i know it's not that
    the dvd drive never gave me problems whene it was on a different system, i know it's not that

    i doubt the PSU would reserve ram, and that leaves just the SSD, and the processor itself

    Without the exact model number of your Trident X memory, I assume it is one of the 4 x 8GB sets of the G.SKILL 32GTX series.

    There are very few 8GB DIMMs listed in your board's memory compatibility list, and no G.SKILL GTX models at all.

    ASRock > Fatal1ty 990FX Killer

    Checking G.SKILL's website, your board is not listed in any of the QVL lists for the 32GTX models. This memory is mainly meant for Intel based boards:

    http://www.gskill.com/en/finder?cat=31&series=614

    Unfortunately you can't use any model of DDR3 memory with and board, and since the memory controller is part of the CPU on your processor, it is more a compatibility issue with the CPU than the board.

    You were lucky IMO to get this memory working with your system at all, but getting it all available to the OS may be impossible.

    Did you try using just 16GB and check the amount of memory recognized, without changing anything else?

    the numerical value of the ram i lose to "hardware reserved" is always half of my physical memory.
    if i put 1 stick i lose 2 gigs, 2 sticks i lose 4 gigs, so on so on

    i also have 1 gig sticks, and 4 gig stick i have played with

    My exp when this happens is the ram timing or speed are not working correctly. First thing go into the bios and set the ram to 1333. Reboot and see if windows is now reserving the ram. If your system is OC's removed that as well while in the bios before booting into windows and report back.

    so far i have tryed this with multiple OC's
    i have changed the ram from plug and play to 2133 and dropped the timings, and tweaked it back and forth

    still no luck

    only 16 gig usable, and 16 in reserves

    Does the BIOS's Main tab show all 32GB as 4pcs 8GB installed?
    #1 - Please, when seeking help, enter the make and model of ALL parts that your system is comprised of in your Signature, or at least the model #'s in your System Specs, then "Save' it.
