I was recently going through my task manager to make sure everything is in good shape and nothing is out of the ordinary (like excessive CPU usage) when I noticed that it was showing I have 8GB of RAM available.
This is odd to me as I made sure that when I rebuilt my computer I got 16GB of RAM, which Windows does confirm as when I check out the "About" tab in the settings menu, it shows that 16GB are installed, but 8 are usable.
It's also showing that my RAM is clocked at 667mhz, I'm not sure if that makes a difference though as I'm pretty sure this ram is meant to run at 1867mhz.
What would be causing my computer to be showing I only have 8GB available when 16GB is installed?
Thanks for your help.
