GIGABYTE GA-X48T-DQ6 Motherboard - Detect memory issue

I have a old computer with a GIGABYTE GA-X48T-DQ6 motherboard. I used to run 2x2gb RAM sticks in it before one stopped working. So I decided to go 8gb (4x2gb) RAM since the motherboard supports it. However when I installed my new memory which is of the same speed as the old one BIOS only detects 256mb of RAM from each stick but in windows it shows up as 8GB (1GB USABLE) scuffed phone pic included. If I use one of the old sticks it still shows up as 2gb.

 

Would really love to get this beast(2008 beast) up and running since it still rocks older games like wow etc which I mainly play.

 

Any help or idea is welcome!

Update the board bios, older bios's can be literally garbage on memory subsystems until the motherboard flaws are tackled.

Swapping orientation of the 4 sticks around...

Tedious but can work.

 

I had a Phenom2 that HATED ALL RAM, booted to bios takes 20seconds on its own.. CPU/RAM wont go higher even if set...

 

Flashed from earliest to latest and its a Whole New Pc.

Ram can now OC from 800Mhz to 1100Mhz (FSB TUNED)

All OCs hold. PC boots in 3seconds to bios.

Ram support is NOW Golden.

Old Boards should have the latest bios you can throe on it, even trying beta bios if they are the latest.

Can be a night and day difference. Feels like i3 to i7 memory controller strength increases.

Maximums - Asus Z97-K /w i5 4690 Bclk @106.9Mhz * x39 = 4.17Ghz, 8GB of 2600Mhz DDR3,.. Gigabyte GTX970 G1-Gaming @ 1550Mhz

So quick update:

 

Flashed bios to latest version but still only shows up as 1gb in bios but 8gb(1gb usable) in windows, using 256mb from each stick for some reason.

 

Gonna add pics of my old memory and new ones. Old one being the corsair and new kingston.
