    look in the bios in system info page and see how much ram is listed,then look in windows control panel/system and security/system and see how much ram is show there

    it can be bent pins/overtightened cpu cooler/not enough qpi/vtt voltage or a blown capacitor,as ive had a board repaired in the past for the same issue and it was a blown cap

    im guessing at voltage/bent pin ot too tight a cpu cooler

    hi guys thanks for the replies, yep seen hundreds of things around Google about the x58 loosing ram lol I had t before and yep it was to do with bios settings if I remember its something to do with x58 liking manual ram settings rather than XMP

    well today I was just about ready to swap my x58a ud3r for my spare p55 ud6, yes a huge downgrade but thought to hell with it I'll have another go and lift the 2 pins that were ben a little higher and hay presto I now have 12gb back, WAZZA I hope you remember back along last year you helped me a lot and finally got a good stable o/c with using the DVID on here well today I found that F8b bios and a saved profile I had for it that was called wazza 4.0 all good" lol and that's been on here all day running prime95, I will keep testing as I haven't had time today really for anything on here with grand kids staying over tonight lol should be fun but tomorrow I'll do some serious testing and post back results..

    thanks to everyone helping and for all the advice

    well done on fixing the pins

    it pays to leave the cpu clamped down and not mess with it unless splitting the board for selling ect,i never touch mine,even on a rare repasting I leave it clamped into the board,that way you wont disturb anything

    keep tweaking with the oc and post back if you need anymore help

    Hey Kev,
    In regards to a soundcard, I am using the Asus Xonar DG with the same board as you. This is what I did--Disabled on board sound in bios ( Integrated Peripherals--Azalia Codec ), I then installed sound card driver per manufacturer directions ( used most recent driver off the mfg web site ). I did have problems getting the driver installed and ended up going into "Safe Mode" to install the driver and this worked fine.
    see ya--rclark

    it all started back last year iv always gone with onboard sound but someone talked me round lol I had the xoner dx and if it was installed then any game would simply crash the system I could even hear the realeys on that card switch off then I swapped that for this xfi and I now get the same problem but if the system isn't o/c at all then all works fine

    EDIT
    another thing that happens when I o/c is I have a tv freeview card in the only PCI slot this board has, with no o/c the tv works fine but when I o/c the tv jumps all the time, I don't know if the sound card and tv card problems are related but its like to me when the system is overclocked it looses power it sends to the PCI slot and other PCI-E slots iv tried the sound card in the little white slote PCI-E 1 AND THE BOTTOM pci-e 8x slots and its the same either way

    I just had a very similar problem with my GA-X58A-UD7 [ver. 1] board. I upgraded the processor and the memory [unchanged] suddenly had only 15 of the 24 GB usable. I tried everything in BIOS and even loosened the cooler....finally, I purchased jeweler's glasses and looked at the 1366 tiny pins on the socket. ONE was slightly out of line. It isn't easy to move one without moving those next to it...but I finally managed to get it straight. With my heart in my mouth I put it all back together and turned it on.....all the memory was recognized! Only took several weeks of to figure it out and solve it. I must have tried several hundred BIOS changes. Be VERY careful with removing and inserting a cpu with a 1366 socket...those pins are very sensitive!
