All of my memory not detected on X58/Socket 1366
i have PVT36G1600LLK 3x2gb 1600mhz with gigabyte ga-x58a-ud3r (rev 1.0) and intel i7 930.
I can't use 6gb i only have 4gb usable, what can i do for use 6gb?
Now the memory is running at 1600mhz.
i can see on "msconfig/boot/avance option" that the max memory is unchecked, but in the Resource monitor shows: "2050mb hadware reserved".
*ANYONE find an Answer to this ****
I'm also having this problem did anyone ever answer this question.
I have a i7-930
Asus P6T-SE MOTHERboard
and the pvt36g1600LLK 3X2 TO Equal 6 gig's.
I have the same thing going on. In the bios on the ai tweaker I have it set to
XMP accourding to intel's profile on there.
Gonna take some pic's of the bios screen. It'll be alot easier than typing
be back with those shortly.
First, check to see if the memory works at the rated timings. If it does not, test each socket with each stick to eliminate if it is a memory issue or a possible dimm socket issue.
Second, It could be a bios flash issue. Check to see if you have the latest bios.
Third, Check the cpu to see if any pins are bent. For platforms with an onboard memory controller, it can fail to recognize a module/slot if a pin is bent.
Fourth, Try to tweak the voltages; Particularly QPI to voltage. QPI should generally be .5 less than Dram. So if the memory is set to 1.65, try setting QPI to 1.15, 1.20, 1.25, 1.30 etc.
Fifth, Uncore should be double the memory speed. If your memory speed is 1600MHz set the uncore to 3200. Usually if it is 4000 or above it can cause a detection issue.
Finally, try setting Trrd to 7 and use the most direct baseclock from native 133. If none of these suggestions work (and the memory checks out) check with your motherboard manufacturer. It can be a bios issue or motherboard memory detection issue.
I have this same issue here also.
Windows 7 64bit
Core i7-930 2.8GHz Processor
Patriot Memory Viper II 12GB Series Sector 7 (3 x 4GB) DDR3 1600MHz CL7 DIMM 240-pin
Tried each stick separate all work fine. When all 3 are fitted it only recognizes 8GB instead of 12GB
Have rehoused the CPU several times and checked all pins etc.
Adjusted settings in the bios with info from here:
Checked bios version is the latest.
Any help on this at all
Is this the official Patriot forums?
Sorry for the late reply.
If the aforementioned tips did not work (post 3) and the memory checks out (every stick on every slot) then we recommend contacting the motherboard manufacturer. Unfortunately there's not much we can do if the issue can't be narrowed down to the memory.
I had the same problem with a Patriot Viper II ‘Sector 7’ Edition 12GB (3 x 4GB) Model PV7312G2000ELK kit with a Rampage III Extreme and Core i7 980X. Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit was recognizing only 8 of 12GB.
Additional things I did that may or may not have sorted things out for me - I did them all at once + what has been mentioned on this page, so hard to isolate which worked:
- reseated my CPU
- I didn't have a great setup with my waterblock/backplate so - and keeping this short - I ensured that tension was EVENLY spaced across the waterblock (this involved a trip to the hardware store for some plastic washers)
- after all this, when I powered on I did so with only ONE DIMM installed and then set my manual overclock as follows:
BCLK Freq: 143
QPI/DRAM Volt: 1.35 (Auto)
DRAM Volt: 1.65625 (ignored the warning in the BIOS about voltages over 1.65 - could someone from Patriot comment about this? exactly 1.65v is not avail to select)
CPU PLL: 1.855
DRAM Freq: 2009
Timings: 9-11-9-27, CR 2T, Trrd 7, all others AUTO
I rebooted to ensure the system accepted the overclock and it did. Then I powered down and installed the remaining 2 DIMMs, powered back on and bingo 12GB of 12GB memory now reported.
Hope this helps, I spent hours researching this annoying problem...

Thanks for the feedback. Hopefully this helps someone else out with this issue. If 1.65v is not available then the next selection up, 1.65625 should be fine. Some boards may even use 1.66v.
