Did you add any swap file tools that write to RAM? (Have you installed any tools or apps lately?)
With the little info provided I would even remove a stick of RAM and see what happens. Switch sockets wouldn't hurt either as it would ensure a good connection as well as help with the 4GB reserved issue by seeing if a socket or stick is faulty. (32bit max is 4GB but 64bit limit starts at 8GB and up depending on the version.)
You note you built this system a while ago...we talking weeks or months? Did you do a burn-in or just start using the system?
Start with this and get back to us.

Some gamers and/or power users install a program that moves the swapfile/page file to a ramdisk and loads it into memory at system startup. A typical amount for this is 4GB. I've done it myself but now that I use a SSD I avoid the extra writes and removed it. (Does it make a difference...depends...don't do much gaming these days so I didn't notice much of a change but it was an interesting project and learning experience for an afternoon.)
but i dont know exactly what you mean by installing tools
