Are you running a 32 bit version of Windows, by chance?

What OS are you running? I believe 32-bit XP or Vista have problems accurately recording RAM above 4GB

Default Re: 4 out of 6 gb of ram found

windows 7 64bit premium

Ok so i tested each stick of ram separately and tested one in each slot... results came through with flying colors... yet I can only get 4gb of ram detected and not 6gb... I'll even say again that cpu z found the 6gb of ram, it also found it in slots 1,2,3 (technically 2,3,4.)

p8p67 pro doesn't go great with tri-channel so I went with dual channel 2x4gb:

Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL

thanks guys!
