Actually... it being a mem problem... he might have the wrong setup in his bios for his memory. And what I meant for what his bios showed was to see what voltage or additional memory mobo options were available pertaining to mem. Cpuz shows what his memory is set at... not what it's rated to run at... so it is relevant. Fyl
Anytime you have a memory problem it's due to voltage... or a bad stick of ram... its simple.
If the bios has failed to recognize the memory and you have cancelled out the bios settings or voltage problem, it could possibly be a defected mobo dram slot
Mindover, you don't know what you are talking about
Post a screenshot of your bios memory settings with a link to the memory manufacturer and model
