    Is there a connection between the pins and the memory??? I haven't check them yet.

    Ok, i took out everything and installed them again. Now the memory is 6GB. I checked the pins and all are ok. I'll leave the system to work and run memtest to check if everything works ok. Thanks again. Just to mention that i had revert back to F6 bios cause i had alot of BSOD.

    I am having the same problem on my UD4P board. I have rotated all the sticks through slot 1 and they all appear to work fine. I can even run all 3 sticks in dual channel mode in slots 1, 3, & 4 just fine, but if I move that last stick to slot 5 for triple channel, I drop back down to 4gb.

    Win7 shows 6gb installed, but only 4gb usable, CPUZ shows all 6gb available, the f7 BIOS only shows 4gb. I have removed the CPU and inspected the socket and don't see any obvious bent pins. I sent an email to Gigabyte on Sunday and haven't gotten a response yet.

    Does anyone have any good ideas?
