Just completed a custom build...

Specs:
HD - Western Digital Caviar Black WD1001FALS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5"
RAM - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL8D-4GBRM
Video Card - EVGA 01G-P3-1366-TR GeForce GTX 460 SE (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
PSU - SeaSonic M12II 620 Bronze 620W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
CPU - AMD Phenom II X4 840 3.2GHz Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor HDX840WFGMBOX

I have tested both sticks of RAM separately and they both work in and of themselves. Despite being a new motherboard I also checked to make sure I had the most recent BIOS version downloaded and I do. I read through the manual of the MOBO and cannot find anything useful. I am not the best with navigating and changing the timings and voltage for the RAM so if anyone had specific directions on what I need to adjust to get all 4gigs up and running it would be greatly appreciated.

Brand & Model of the Mobo? What OS?
What precisely is the problem?
Will the PC not work with both sticks installed?
Does it not "see" all 4GB?

Thank you for the quick response and apologies for your time but it seems I have rectified the problem.

I was using both sticks of RAM in slots A1,B1, as they are color coded and placed in order. While waiting on your response I tested them in A1,A2 which are different colors and not in order yet the system powers up fine and recognizes all 4 gigs.

Once again sorry for the wasted forum thread but thanks on the quick response.

No problem and glad you got it sorted out. That info would have been in the Mobo manual. :smile:
