Hello,

I have 16gb 2x8 DDR4 "HyperX Fury Black 8GB DDR4 3200MHz CL16" https://www.pcgarage.ro/memorii/hyperx/fury-black-8gb-ddr4-3200mhz-cl16/
Nvidia Geforce GTX 1660 TI 6GB GDDR6
ryzen 7 2700x cpu
B450M DS3H-CF MOBO Bios version F41 - AMD AGESA COMBO - AM4 1.0.0.3
Windows 10 version 2004 OS Build 19041.329 ( just installed today to see if the problem will be fixed)

Does anyone know why the windows is using only 7.95GB of 16GB ?
In bios it shows both sticks, in cpuz it shows 16GB but the windows is using only 7.95.

I tried to check and uncheck maxim memory in msconfig, i tried switching the slots on the mobo still don't works

Welcome to Toms Hardware @Baigtas!

Firstly check in BIOS and confirm it says 16GB. Also while you are in the BIOS try checking if the GPU has reserved RAM or anything reserving it, if it hasn't then report back.

Hello,

Photo with the bios. It's saying 16GB and i couldn't find any settings about reserved RAM in easy mode or clasic mode.

EDIT: Don't mind the XMP profile. i tried to activate it to see if it change something and forgot to turn it off
