    I have 2 sticks of 4gb ram and 2 sticks of 2gb. My pc says I have 12 installed and 6 available. I have windows 10 64 bit.

    Are they matching pairs? Meaning- are they exactly the same, same speed and timings?

    I don't think so. I looked on the stick and the 2gbs info isn't clear. However even just using the 2 4gbs only it only gives me 4gbs of available ram

    There's software that can tell you what exactly they are. I like HWiFO64.
