asus m5a78l m le usb3 Ram problem

asus m5a78l m le usb3 , amd fx-6300 six core 2x4gb ram
The problem is that windows shows 8gb of ram (3,89gb) usable. In bios it says 4gb of ram. bios is the newest version. Motherboard is totally new. Tryd two totally different ram sticks and it does the same.
Olso tryd run-msconfig
I am out of ideas.

  1. Are you using a 32bit operating system?

    * Due to OS limitation, when installing total memory of 4GB capacity or more, Windows® 32-bit operation system may only recognize less than 3GB. Install a 64-bit Windows® OS when you want to install 4GB or more memory on the motherboard.

    Try going into the BIOS and under Advanced, manually set the "DRAM Controller Configuration".

  7. That is listed as "Value Memory" which is low-end low price product. Sold as singles there is no guarantee that combining two will work together.

    You may need to lower frequency, relax timings, or increase DRAM voltage to get two working together. There is no guarantee that you will be successful.

    I suggest returning the memory and purchasing a kit of two that has already been tested together.
