Question about Gigabyte GA-8I945P-G Motherboard
Hie , im using the 8i945P-G mobo and just recieved 4 (!) G.skill pc2-6400 1024 sticks ... wich is good so far. thwn i installed the first 3 the bios identifies them correctly and shows 3072MB of ram when i add the forth stick it increases the ram to 3400 ... i'v tried to change places of the sticks, use diferent combination and even tried it with a 3*1024 +1*512 ... still the bios says that i got 3400. the funny thing is that windows (xp64) shows 3250MB YET CPUz shows all the 4G correctly i'v updated the bios to it's latest (F11) version and still nothing *** i know that the Mobo supports ram up to 667Mhz and those are 800Mhz sticks *** but it suppose only to alow them down (and its realy good 4 OC coz the *** Mem runs @ it's natural speed when i'm using 250 FSB (3000@3700 Mhz) any idea what may cause this messup ???
Due to standard PC architecture, a certain amount of memory is reserved for system usage and therefore the actual memory size is less than the stated amount. __For example, 4 GB of memory size will instead be shown as 3.xxGB memory during system startup.____To use a DDRII 667 memory module on the motherboard, you must install an 800/1066MHz FSB processor.____Please also refer to the image below
