    Hi! 

    I have posted about this before, but I did not get an answer and I have found some more information. 

    I have a Huananzhi x79 8D motherboard with 8x8GB of DDR3 ECC memory and 2 x Xeon E5 2670 CPU:s. 

     

    The unraid dashboard lists my RAM to be 32GB (instead of 64GB). The system information as well: 

    Model: Custom
    M/B: HUANANZHI X79-8D Version VAA31 - s/n: MB-201903272019
    BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. Version 4.6.5. Dated: 03/28/2019
    CPU: Intel® Xeon® CPU E5-2670 0 @ 2.60GHz
    HVM: Enabled
    IOMMU: Enabled
    Cache: 512 KiB, 2048 KiB, 20480 KiB, 512 KiB, 2048 KiB, 20480 KiB
    Memory: 32 GiB DDR3 Multi-bit ECC (max. installable capacity 192 GiB)
    Network: bond0: fault-tolerance (active-backup), mtu 1500
     eth0: 1000 Mbps, full duplex, mtu 1500
     eth1: interface down
    Kernel: Linux 4.19.88-Unraid x86_64
    OpenSSL: 1.1.1d
    Uptime: 

    The "free" command gives me 64GB of RAM: 

                  total        used        free      shared  buff/cache   available
    Mem:       65966588    19896080     4611780      696308    41458728    44772192
    Swap:             0           0           0

     

    lshw -short

    Also shows 8 sticks of 8GB RAM:

    Hi there,

     

    I've passed this along to the devs to take a look.  I'm guessing that this is only an appearance issue and that nothing functionally is broken (e.g. you can still assign more than 32GB of RAM to VMs and whatnot).  Please confirm.

    Thank you. Yes I can assign more than 32 GB of RAM to my VMs.
