    8gb out of 16gb of my ram is Usable?

    If you don't have already, go get a copy of CPUz and install/run. I was reading that others had this issue and it was showing that the mem was in single channel mode, not dual mode. That's a setting in BIOS/UEFI to enable Dual Mode. Since you just swapped your CPU, it may not be set to Dual. Easy check to rule this out.

    CPU-Z | Softwares | CPUID

    I have 2 sticks of 16GB, and I show Dual and 32GB available.

    Something else I just ran across.

    Memory used by the Boot Process. It will use and release mem, unless this has a value, and then will reserve it. That's my understanding.

    Run MSCONFIG, boot tab, advanced. Make sure the memory is 0 and box unchecked.

    8gb out of 16gb of my ram is Usable?

    So I double checked to see if my BIOS was fully updated by going to Support For 760GMA-P34 (FX) | Motherboard - The world leader in motherboard design | MSI USA. The weird thing is on their website they only state version "P.0" and "P.1". Though my computer shows it to be version 2.6?
