I have recently built my PC with the following setup:
32GB ( 4 x 8G Team Xtreem 1600 XMP)
Plextor M5Pro 256GB
Colourful Nvidia GTS450
Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
I am having an issue that I cannot get the remaining 204MB back in the Resources Monitor, it may sounds nothing when using such a large amount of memory. But I do like to get them back in my hands.
I have tried :
1. Fresh installation of the OS.
2. Updated to the latest BIOS.
3. Latest driver from Intel site.
4. Reposition of rams.
5. Manually set the rams with the manufacture settings.
6. Reset the BIOS.
No matter how much memory I tried, from 8GB,16GB,24GB to 32GB. It still ate me 204MB from the memory, the BIOS and Resources Monitor can recognize all memories,1024x32.
Can anyone help me to get them back? I saw others with similar systems are fine with that 32GB memories fully used. Thank You!
There is a Hardware reserved : Memory that is reserved for use by the BIOS and some drivers for other peripherals "as per MS".
It's normal to have this.
That's Normal Its Know As System Reserve For Whatever Reason, Just So You Know Even If It Indicates Full 32GB You Can Never Use The Whole Of It, There Is Always System Reserve.
Yo Mean Like This Even Mine Shows That
My System Specification
Intel Desktop Board DZ87KLT-75K
Intel Core i7-4770K
Corsair Vengeance LP 32GB (4 x 8GB @ 1600MHz C9, XMP 1.3)
EVGA GTX 770 SC 2GB ACX
Seasonic X660 (660W)
Note I Had the RAM on a DZ68BC, MSI Z87 Based Board, EVGA Z77 FTW Before and Still Showed Same Thing, So This Is Perfectly Normal.
