Question CPU(fx 6300) doesn't detect both ram sticks

So, I got an amd fx 6300 upgrade(from 4100, found a good offer for 20$, I am perfectly aware that this isn't a particularly high price for the 6300, they go around 40$ most of the time) and when I swapped the CPU this one only detects one of the sticks, the other is listed as "hardware reserved", if I swap back the 4100 everything appears to be fine. Any ideas? Side note: It had some really slightly bent pins that I straightened, they're perfectly fine now, I personally can't even notice they were ever bent.

N68-VS3 FX , that's what I assumed too so I put https://www.asrock.com/mb/NVIDIA/N68-VS3 FX/#BIOS 1.80 from here, which is the latest ever released, it was successfully updated but that did not change how it behaved and it still looks like that https://prnt.sc/oyoeng I am also fairly aware it's a very low-end mobo so I gave up on the 80s CPUs but I had hopes that 60s would work, 8350 and so on were a no go, still I am unsure if it's a broken CPU or exactly what only thing I know is that it works fine with the 4100 inside but not with the 6300.
