CPU: Core i7 860
MB: GB-H55M-UD2H (Updated BIOS to F8 – Newest)
MEM: Kingston 6GB kit Hyper X 1600
PSU: Corsair 650W
OS: Win 7 Ultimate x64
I am having two problems:
1. Windows reporting 6GB (3.96GB Usable)
2. BIOS CPU Temp 90C, but Easy Tune and Core Temp in windows are reporting ~45C
Both BIOS and Windows suggest the System Temperature is around 40C, no problem there. Using stock CPU cooler, which is affixed correctly and is plugged in and the fan is spinning etc. etc. no visual problems.
Both issues were present before updating the BIOS and still exist after updating
Im using 3 sticks of memory on a dual-channel motherboard with 4 slots, dont know if this is an issue? i have tried different combinations of slots also.
