I have Aorus Master X570 with Ryzen 9 3950X and separate graphics card (ASROCK Radeon RX 5500 XT Challenger D 8G in PCIe 4 16x slot) I have installed 4x 32GB DDR4 corsair modules (VENGEANCE RGB PRO 64GB (2 x 32GB) DDR4 DRAM 3000MHz C15 Memory Kit) to it which makes 128 GB in total. I have the latest BIOS (F11).

However I'm not able to use all 128 GB. My system only has ~126GB available, more than 2GB are reserved.

Is there some setting in BIOS i need to change to have the full capacity or RAM available? Is this somehow pre-allocated for some internal graphics (some ryzen do have internal GPU).

I'm using Linux (Kubuntu 20.04), here are the outputs from dmesg | grep emory,free and cat /proc/meminfo commands:

I executed memtest couple of times and the modules seems to be working fine. Also lshw shows correct parameters for them.
