So I’ve got 16gb installed ram, 12gb available, is this normal? I’ve recently installed new RAM, updated bios and re installed windows x64 (done all this due to recent memory issues) any ideas?

Open Task manager>Resource monitor>Memory. Normal W10 usage at idle is about 3.5GB. Depending on what's running in the background could use even more.
 
Is your ram all from the same kit?
If not, you may have compatibility issues.
What is the make/model of your ram sticks?
What is the make/model of your motherboard and cpu?
If you have 4 sticks of 4gb each, possibly one of the sticks is faulty.
