    Something is wrong there.

    Download the latest version from here.

    Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

    The current latest version is 4.20.

    Burn to blank cd as an ISO.

    It is not going to take 2 minutes from pressing power button to start Memtest.

    @Wazza300

    I think the Max CPU multi is x21 only conditionally. Otherwise, max is x20.

    I can't access either of my i7 pcs at the moment. But on my i7 930, for instance, I cannot use x22 even though it is an option. I think hitting x22 is part of the new set of power saving features...

    I think it used to be like that,but now it lets you set 21x,don't know if it let's yo7 if turbo is disabled,earlier bios's only went to 20x while turbo added the extra 1x

    @Doug H

    I think Turbo is part of the new power saving feature. It actually chokes back the cpu multi most of the time and only increases it as the need arises. So even though control panel will say that your cpu is running at 3.2 or 3.4, CPUZ should tell you that you are running at a much lower multi. This is fine, though, because the chip will increase its speed only when you need it. Turbo should lower your power bill compared to keeping it off and probably will decrease the wear on your chip. :)

    @Wazza300, when I get access to my pc again, I'll check it out. I only flashed to the current BIOS, Ff2, from FB only a couple of days ago. :)

    on a 920, standard multi is x20 and turbo puts it to x21. if you manually set yout multi to x21 then you force Turbo on all the time.... same goes for a 930, but the multi on a 930 is x21 and turbo is x22...

    These are the power saving settings
    CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E) ................... [Enabled]
    CPU EIST Function ............................ [Enabled]

    by having these enabled your multi will go to a multi of x12 or something when the system is "not operating" and that is how you are saving power... Running at 1.6Ghz while in idle instead of 2.6Ghz. and the multi of x21 comes in when the system is near fully loaded... helping you get the work done quicker so you can go to idle faster.

    the settings that wazza posted should work just fine for you, and was what I was going to suggest. that way you keep your memory running at your already tested 1600Mhz

    Thanks, Vinster, for the input.

    I spent the last three months with the power saving features off. But I think it's not worth it for me. The system only spends half the time really working on projects; the other times, it's doing nothing. ^^;

    Ok, so I changed a couple of settings per this thread and the system is coming up at 3.359 no problem. First thing I noticed though is the bios is showing only 10GB of 12GB of memory ok. Windows shows 12G installed and 10G available. When I load CPU-Z it shows all the sticks and 12G total.
    I started memtest86 which is running now and it shows all 6 sticks in the "Memory SPD Informations" section. but only showing 10G on the "Memory" line at the top left of the screen. Anything you could tell me on this? Here are the new BIOS settings:

    Thanks,

    Set x44 QPI speed, you'll need to lower this back to x36 if you increase the Bclk much, but x44 (7Gt/s) will be fine for what you have above

    The issue you are having with memory is due to incorrect QPI/Vtt voltages, and probably uncore speed too since you have that on auto.

    First try setting your uncore, for x10 memory multi set x20-22 uncore multiplier. Then test that and see if that corrects the missing memory.

    If not you will need to increase your QPI/Vtt, try 1.38-1.45 and see if that corrects it.

    Your issue is actually not uncommon for X58, regardless of motherboard make. See here.

    Troubleshooting Thread for Incorrect Memory Amounts on X58 and P55/H55/H57 Platforms - The Corsair Support Forums

    You are going to have to do some troubleshooting on your own there. I sympathize. If your problem is not voltage related and if your ram sticks and motherboard are not faulty then it can even be caused by over-tightening of the cpu cooler! :D
