Default Flashed bios now only reading 8 / 12 gigs memory

Hey guys, so I have an x58 classified motherboard and i went to flash the bios... before the system had 12 gigs of usable memory... now it says it has 8 in the bios and 8 out of 12 usable when booted into windows. The flash was a success as I did everything proper and loaded default settings before the flash so my oc'ing wouldn't mess it up and then reset the cmos after the update. Everything works fine and the update was suppose to make oc'ing more stable (really unstable before the flash)... and I've looked over every option in the bios as far as a switch goes to register the remaining 4 gigs but no luck. Any ideas? Would a voltage increase do the trick... i'm thinking no so havn't tried it but if someone gives me reason to try that would be cool.

Live And Let Learn.

Try reseating the memory modules.

Maybe the BIOS is set to only use dual channel, instead of triple channel?
