Re: Anybody have 4 GIGS or know how to use them?
This is right out of both my asus p4p800-e deluxe and asus k8n user guides: "When all 4 sockets are populated with 1gb dimms (total 4 gb), the system may detect only 3+gb (a little less than 4gb) due to the southbridge resource allocation." I ran into this problem and i tested each stick of ram to find all were fine. now if you check your mobo asus probe program it shows all four gb in use. so as far as i know you do use all four, just one gb is dedicated to the southbridge. also when you use all four your system goes into dual-channel mode by default. hope this helps
