Did the ram come as a kit of 4 sticks or you bought 4 individual sticks?

Where are you seeing this 16GB?

Seeing it in bios and in taskmgr

Corsair vengeance LPX
DDR4 32gb [4x8gb]
2133 mhz
ver 8.30

Yes, bought as set from corsair.
Memory has been reseated numerous times.

Just was in bios and saw something did not notice before
only recognizing B1 and B2
showing A1 and A2 as empty, no matter how I arrange ram sticks

went back into bios, under memory, under SPD
Now shows A1 and A2 active, but B1 and B2 empty.
Have tried xmp on and off.
Seems to alternate between A's and B's after booting

searched everywhere, no function to enable or disable dimm slots that I could find

Post a link to the ram you bought.

What bios level do you have?

semi-new build ... if it was cpu pins, wouldn't that cause a specific set of slots to act up and not be alternating? It was what I could afford at the time.
