Can't Overclock, Half Ram is Showing in Windows

4 hours ago, Windows7ge said:

Does all your RAM report in the BIOS? If you check Task Manager does the 2nd half your your RAM appear as Hardware Reserved?

 

Start by disabling your overclock. You can also try reseating your RAM.

i fixed it .. went to reseat the cpu, not properly and bent and broke a pin .. after an hour of straightening pins i pulled the board and made sure the cpu was seated properly and now the system sees all 32gb and ram is 3000mhz and cpu 3.8 ghz at 1.36

Build

CPU : RYZEN 7 1700 

BOARD : MSI X370 CARBON 

GPU : DUAL GTX 1070'S IN SLI

RAM : 32 GB GEIL RGB LUCE 

SSD : 1 X 2TB NVME , 1 X 250 GB NVME 

 

So I have had this Cpu on a number of boards and was able to overclock it 3.95mhz consistently at 3.785v however on this board the highest i got was 3.750mhz  at 3.33v 

 

So this is my issue.. I had it overclocked yesterday, no issues, 3.75mhz and my ram was at 3000mhz 

Now windows is only letting 15.9 out of 32 gb be usable ... I am not able to overclock my cpu at all ...

 

All I did was reseated the cpu block .... I have not touched the ram ...
