I upgraded from 8GB RAM to 24GB (G.SKILL RIPJAWS X Series), but Windows and CPU-Z shows that I only have 16GB installed?


Dec 11, 2014
Just last night, I upgraded from 8GB to 24GB RAM in my gaming computer. As the title states, both Windows and CPU-Z are showing that I have only 16GB installed.

Just in case you need my specs, my motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-Z97-D3H.
The RAM I already had was G.SKILL RIPJAWS X Series (2x4 2133mhz).
My OS is Windows 8.1 (64-bit), and I don't believe I'm exceeding the RAM limit there.
I can provide more information if it's needed. Thank you!
