Hello. I just bought a components to build my first computer. But after istallation I found that I am using only 3.95gb out of 8gb ram. I tried probably everything. My bios is up-to date. But here is some strange. In bios I can see only 1 installed stick. But in windows I can see 2 of them. Also the ram are 2800 mAhz but in bios is only 2144. I am really out of ideas.

Specs:
CPU: Ryzen 5 2600
Mobo: ASUS Prime b450m-k
GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 1060 3gb
Ram : 2X4gb Viper
OS: Windows 64-bit with 64-bit processor ( lattest version)

Power down the PC, remove one of the sticks, power it back up, and then see what's reported in the BIOS. If it reports normally, power it down again, remove the stick already on the motherboard and then replace it with the other stick. Power it up and check again what's being reported in the BIOS.
