    and

    ( first thing, always install the latest bios)

    This was good reading but I've found out something about this problem.

    My ASUS x58 sabertooth mobo was detecting 4gig out of 6 gigs so I went to this forum you posted and played around with the bios, to no avail.

    Then I've decided to move the " Gskill 3 channels kit " around to test them, and surprise, the 6 gigs were detected. It seem to me like we have to insert the memory sticks a couple of times to make sure that all the contacts are touching the stick. It might be due to some residue , varnish or something preventing the new setup to work properly. Since this problem seem to happen with all brands of memory, it would be mostly a problem with the motherboard memory slots.

    So anyway, try this trick before pulling your hair off and don't OC too much...

          6months seems like a long time to wait before considering sending them back. I think you should send it back... and should have done so as soon as problem occurred.
