Last year I built a Core i7 920 system based on the ASUS P6T Deluxe motherboard. I have 3x1GB of DDR3 (triple-channel configuration), but only 2GB is being reported by: Windows XP, CPU-Z, the BIOS. Is this a hardware problem, or is the third gigabyte of RAM being reserved by the system for video card-related stuff? The video card has 512MB of RAM.
I realize that 32-bit Windows XP is not the ideal operating system for more than 2GB of RAM, but from what I've read it should be reporting at least 2.5GB.
