In the run program type msconfig go to the boot tab select advande in advanced you should see ram cache or memory cache limit it to 3gbs that's all the system itself should ever need

Yes but if you just pulled everything and reseated it, then this will reset because the system is going to see it as new ram not the og's your used all system will do this and if you mean you did this after reassembling sounds like you didn't submit it properly and restart the system
Okay what exactly should I do in msconfig

This motherboard?

https://download.msi.com/archive/mnu_exe/mb/E7B79v2.1-GSE-LITE.pdf

Verify that I found the applicable User Guide/Manual

From physically numbered Page 29

Always insert memory modules in the DIMMA2 slot first.

Also are the RAM modules from a matched kit for dual channel use?

Refer to the User Guide/Manual and MSI's website to confirm that both the RAM modules being used and the installation itself is supported.
