System specs

Window 7 64 bit
8GB (4GBx2) DDR3/1600MHz Dual Channel Memory Corsair Vengeance

MSI 970A-G45 AMD 970 Socket AM3+ ATX Mainboard

My trouble and btw bios is currently updated to v 1.5, is my memory in BIOS as well as Windows will only read at 1/2 of its actual value. I have tried forcing the 1600, clearing cmos , re seating it stick by stick or in pairs, going dimm 2 dimm 4 first and NOTHING has worked.

does anyone have a idea because its seems I know bout as much if not more then the turkeys at MSI Tech Support. thanks
