I have an ASUS P6T Deluxe V2, BIOS version 1202 (latest) with an i7 920 and I try to install 24GB RAM, which consists in two sets of Corsair Vengeance 12GB-Triple-Channel-DDR3-Memory-Kit (i.e. 2 kits oer set of 3 x 4GB, PC3-12800 (1600MHz), 9-9-9-24, 1.5V).

The BIOS detects only 16GB, although I have read that should work to full 24GB.

Below I see that two slots seem unoccupied. I have tried the memory sets separately, they work.

What could be the reason, how could I diagnose?

Thank you.

    You lack some crucial information for your question. Are you running a 32 bit or 64 bit OS? How much memory does your motherboard state it supports as well as timings? – Eric F Apr 30 '19 at 12:55

    @EricF - While I don't disagree details are scarce in this question. The one thing that is clear is they are running a 64-bit operating system, due to the fact, their system detects 12 GB from within the OS. – Ramhound Apr 30 '19 at 13:35

    @mike - Have you tried to restore the default firmware settings. Most of the time when I have seen a similar question here, where the user has X installed but the OS only detects Y, is due to their memory channel configuration. – Ramhound Apr 30 '19 at 13:36

    There could be incompatibility between memory kits of different vendors. – montonero Apr 30 '19 at 13:45

    Which rank are the modules? – Hennes Apr 30 '19 at 18:44

I have tried many tricks in the BIOS, including setting manually memory parameters to be exactly as specified by the vendor, but no avail. Eventually, I have switched the kits in their slots and worked, it recognizes all the 24GB of RAM. Memtest did not show errors after 3 steps of checking. I know it is not a solution working in all the cases, but worked in my case.
