I guys,
I built my pc a few days ago and I notice that there is only the half of my ram installed usable...
I tried the msconfig thing without any result.
Can you help me??

Here my config:
R7 2700X Gold
Radeon RX 580
B450 Gaming plus
Corsair Vengeance LPX 2X8G
 
Does all 16gb show up in the bios?
If so, it's likely an issue with the operating system.
If not, then reseat the memory modules into their respective dim slots.
If you then still get the same results, try both memory modules separately in each dimm slot to test if the issue is either with the modules or the dimm slot.
 
You wrote, "I went back in the Bios and I saw that!! It says that the speed of each ram is diffrent!".

The picture shows the memory come with two XMP profiles. You can choose to enable either profile.

If you have a question about memory, I suggest you list a part number of the memory or a link to it.

Oups! I didn’t know that... but you can see
on the picture the memory size is 8G but it also show that 2 ram of 8G are installed! Shouldn’t be 16G?

The sticks arent running at different speeds, it's just two different XMP profiles you can enable for the sticks.
Have you tried reseating the CPU? Is the CPU cooler on OK?
Yes, the BIOS detects both sticks. What is 2x8? 16.
