    Default GA-X58A-UD3R Ram issue with win7 64 bit

    Hi, I need some help with my Ram and win7 64bit. I search a lot on any forums and cant find any answer to my problem.

    My OS is Win7 home Prem 64Bit and when Im going in Control pannel I see 6Go ram (4Go usuable)

    I dont know what wrong with it, my Bios is up to date (last version from here)

    There is my setup:

    Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R - F6b
    Intel Core i7 930 Quad Core Processor LGA1366 2.8GHZ
    Corsair XMS3 TR3X6G1600C8 6GB DDR3 3X2GB DDR3-1600 CL 8-8-8-24 Core i7
    XFX Alpha Dog Edition XXX 8800GT 512Mo
    Western Digital Caviar Black 500GB 7200RPM 32MB Dual Proc SATA 3.5IN Hard Drive
    XFX 850W Black Edition PSU
    Window 7 Home Prem 64bit
    Antec Twelve Hundred case.

    I tried to tweak a bit the QPI/Vtt from 1.125 to 1.335 but nothing happens... Im a bit new to tweak bios/voltage but if you can help me with it I will really appreciate it.

    Thx.

    try re-seating cpu in the socket,check for any bent pins but be carefull when checking not to damage anything,dont let the cpu clamp close when theres no cpu in the socket as its likelyto have thermal paste on it

    If you are sure there is no bent pins, are you sure your CPU Heatsink is not causing a short on the front side of the board, or the backplate on the rear?

    If you do not think you have a short, or bent pins, please give me your full settings and I will advise back. This can be caused easily by incorrect settings if none of the above is true. Incompatible memory can also do this, but lets check your settings first.

    There is a template in my signature for you to give us your current settings.

    you can test each module aswell one at a time,just install one stick in first white slot from cpu socket,do this with each module if it boots into windows with each stick then that slot is ok,do the same for the other two white slots

    Ok but the bios can see my 3 slot with ram in it, and cpu-z detect 6go too, Ill try it but I dont think its a white module.

    just check anyway to be 100% sure,it could be a faulty module aswell,ive had a faulty ram module and it still showed 6gb in windows but when i tested with the method above it wouldnt boot and showed c1 error on mb clock

    this is what it should looklike in task manager and resource monitor,also look in bios screen andsee if it shows 6gb and not 4






    give each slot a good blow when ram isnt in just incase theres some dust in there

    He means white slots, the memory must go in the white slots 1, 3, 5, (Physical 2, 4, 6).

    In regards to your memory in the BIOS, if you set "DRAM Timing Selectable" to expert you should see - or N/A by one of the channels since you are missing 2GB, this is the failing channel. CPU-z and BIOS Total will still show 6GB though. You can look in taskmanager, there you will find an incorrect amount in "Total Physical Memory" in the performance tab.

    Sorry for the french version, "im a french canadian lol"

    there is the problem I think, the Hardware reserved (2050Mo) The exact same Mo I'm missing for a totally 6Go Ram. I dont know where Can i disable this but I think this is my problem.

    it should say 6144 not 4094,i know it says hardware reserved but it should be like my pic above if all your rams working as it should,its either a bios issue with your ram as you say you have two identical systems and both show the same thing?? maybe a newer bios will address it or try a different brand of ram??
