Windows 10 shows 32GB of RAM are installed instead of 16GB, in system information/task manager. What might be the reason?
RAM:
Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 2666 MHz DDR4 DRAM (8GBx2)
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z390 UD rev. 1.0 BIOS version F8
OS: Windows 10

I also use an XMP for 3200MHz.

What does it show in sysinfo?

this is what mine shows -

installed physical - 16gb
total physical 15.9
available physical - 10.9
Total virtual 31.9
available virtual - 25.3
page file size 16gb

on task manager, does it show as 32gb on top header?

are you looking at the committed total as that includes page file

my sysinfo shows:
installed physical - 32.0GB
available physical - 27.8GB
total virtual - 36.9GB
available virtual - 31.5GB
page file space - 5GB

and yes, on task manager under "performance->memory", it shows "memory 32GB" on top.

It's possible you really do have 32GB RAM installed (16GB x 2)

May be you are mistaken about what you really have?

I've often dealt with issues where available RAM is less than it should be, but never more than it should be.
definitely not.
i bought and installed it myself. definitely Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 2666 MHz DDR4 DRAM (8GBx2)
can still see it in my amazon order history.
