You are watching: Why is only half of my ram usable



Anyone know why my mounted memory (RAM) is 16GB but it claims only 7.95GB of my RAM is useable?MY SPECS:OS: Windows 8 ProProcessor:AMD FX 6300 RAM: 16GB (2 8GB Sticks) of ram (correctly set up in slots 1&3) both my Bios and also CPU-Z recognize that I have actually 16GB mounted. But my device just claims fifty percent of it is usable...Motherboard: MSI 970A-G46 through the BIOS variation 2.6 set up.

Check all sticks are firmly seated and attempt, if still troubles can try raising DRAM voltage + 0.05 and CPU/NB voltage + 0.10 - might also be bent/damaged pins on the CPU

This generally occurs once one of the modules isn"t seated effectively. Take them both out, clean the contacts through a solvent, and test them individually in each slot before reseating them both.
Thanks that addressed it, I took them out and put them in the opposite slots and it functions fine now. Thanks so much guys!
