What I have:
Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R Motherboard
i7-960 3.2GHz 8MB LGA1366 CPU
GIGABYTE GV-R6870C-1GD video,
Kingston SSD 120GB HyperX SATA3 6G SH100S3/120G system HD
40GB RAM (Kingston HyperX Genesis 8GB memory sticks (KHX16C9/8) x4; 4GB memory sticks (KHX1600C9D3/4G) x2)
OSX 10.6.8 Snow Leopard
Previously I had 32GB of RAM that worked fine (Kingston HyperX Genesis 8GB memory sticks (KHX16C9/8) x2; 4GB memory sticks (KHX1600C9D3/4G) x4).
Because I constantly use Kontakt’s sound library under Logic I needed to upgrade my RAM to 40 GB. This amount of RAM memory would be enough for me. So, I bought two 8GB sticks and now I have 40 GB RAM inside my machine.
The System Profiler shows the 40GB is recognized (see the picture). But when I open Activity Monitor (System Memory page) to see what's going on, I find that the pie graph only shows 32GB (see the picture).
What do I need to do to get Snow Leo to recognize the whole amount (40GB) of RAM, not to ‘see’ 32GB only?
Dear professionals, how do I solve my problem?
I tried swapping memory sticks into different slots, but it didn’t help.
