Windows only sees 8GB but CPUZ sees 12GB

  1. Hi all,

    I've recently upgraded to w10 but weirdly now windows only sees 8GB. When I had w8 it saw all 12GB of ram but now only 8GB.

    I've checked CPUZ and it can see the 12GB fine but windows still only sees 8GB (and not '8GB usable', it actually only sees 8GB).


    I've already looked to see if I should update motherboard BIOS but it's an Asus Rampage Extreme III and the last BIOS was released in 2011 (I have that one installed).

    Does anyone have any idea what I should do?

    Thanks for your time!

    Would that actually make Windows 'see' the 12GB? It just seems strange to me that it cannot see 12GB at all, in System it just says 8.00GB.


    I'll have a go though thanks! :)
