    Hello!
    I've got a question:
    my new motherboard (Sabertooth 990FX rev2) only see 8176mb of DDR3 instead 8192 in uefi.
    In windows (cpu-z) i see 8192 and each xms3 is 2048.

    It's all normal?

    It's nothing to worry about put it that way, just the BIOS possibly not picking up the exact size though it's 20Mb so like I said wouldn't worry what so ever :toast:

    It's probably reserved for something by the motherboard/UEFI. My i7 system shows 16339 total in Task Manager when I have 16384 installed, and my HD 4000 integrated graphics should be turned off.
