I have installed Ballistix Sport 8GB Kit (4GBx2)  2 times.

I put the first 2 in slot 1 and slot 3 AND the other 2 in slot 2 and slot 4 of my Motherboard (Z97x gaming 5).

https://www.amazon.de/Ballistix-Sport-PC3-12800-UDIMM-240-Pin/dp/B006YG94Y2?th=1

So I basically should have 16gb, but in Task manager 2gb is already 50%...

In the other tab I have 8 gb usable?

In the next BIOS and in the system description I have 16gb installed

Attached File  Screenshot (13).png   154.1KB   0 downloads

 

This is what the resource manager shows: (Arbeitsspeicher = RAM. only 7.46 gb avaible)

 Attached File  Screenshot (15).png   149.5KB   1 downloads

 

How can I use all of the RAM :|

Hi, looks OK to me, Task manager shows ram usage by process if you click on the 51% then the list will go from highest to lowest, showing other processes using your memory. Windows ten likes to use Ram (that's what it's for) and you show 8.1 in use 1.26 compressed, (BTW memory compression along with svchost single process was introduced to 10 recently, it does improve stability). And 7.6 unused.

@jenae So its just a projection "problem" and the RAM is used correctly? I was wondering about that, because Black Desert Online is an mmorpg with super good graphics but horrible optimization. Thats why i was surprised it can not/ does not use a lot of RAM.
