Speccy shows that I have 16Gb of RAM installed. All the same RAM. BIOS on the other hand only shows that I have 8Gb Installed. My Ram was working fine till about 4 hours ago (at the time of this post) and when I restarted my computer, BIOS only showed 8Gb and I now only show 8Gb in the Task Manager, DXDiag shows that I have 14Gb installed, and Speccy shows all 16Gb. Here is the Memory Tab of the Task Manager View: https://imgur.com/IyrHuHd
. I've been working on this for hours, I'm at a loss -_- I'm starting to think just two bad RAM slots all of a sudden, because I've reseated and everything, mixed them up and nothing changes.

well I mean both kits were exactly the same models, both have the same model number. Both came as 2x4Gb. XMP profile? You mean a Speccy Snapshot?

Oh, well I think I'm just going to have to get a new Mobo. I want one this time with a good onboard sound card. I'm using an Asus sound card with mine and it sits DIRECTLY against GPU almost. Any suggestions for a good 5.1 channel onboard audio DDR3 AM3+ Motherboard? I can't spend 150+ on one though.
