So I got som old RAM bricks from a friend of mine (DDR3 4x4gb). When I´m installing them I can only get 8gb out of them. I´ve tried starting the pc with two RAM bricks in slot 1 and 3, and also 2 and 4. The pc starts up just fine and works as normal. When I put in the two other brick, nothing happens and the computer can still just find 8gb, and 2 out of 4 bricks. 

I´ve tried updating BIOS aswell. 

 

 

Motherboard: Asus Maximus V Gene

Hi Joak1ng,and welcome to our site.

 

:welcome:

 

I would be inclined to get the machine working, and then visit the crucial.com site, download their  tool to assess the exact type of RAM modules required for your particular motherboard.

 

The tool is free to download and will also provide you with details of compatible RAM and prices.

There is no obligation to purchase RAM from them, but their tool is of excellent reputation and recommended by many experts.
