Hi MaRio,
Did you solve this problem? I have the same problem (but only 6gb trippel channel) and only 4 is showing as well.

other hardware:
core i7 960
Radeon HD4890
6gb Corsair dominator 1600
C300 ssd
H50 cooling

Please help me if you found a solution.

Hi Michael & MaRio,

Did either of you solve this problem? I'm having the same exact problem - Detecting DRAM Size..." (shuts off, restarts, shuts off, shuts off, restarts "" then loads windows. Windows says 8gb (4gb usable memory). I've tried removing and resetting all 4 dimms as well as the CPU that didn't work.

Anyone know what this might be or how to fix it?

Hi geakerson,
I found that the source to my problem was bent pins on the cpu. I carefully raised them with a small screwdriver and PUFF problem solved.

Hope this can fix your problem as well
