    I tried this with some skepticism, but it has worked! How weird, and how did you know to try that?
    Many times it is just that the RAM isn't seated properly. I'd be willing to bet you could now probably switch them back to original slots and your problem would remain solved.

    MSCONFIG maximum memory is not ticked. BIOS looks like this:

    your memory is running in single mode, dual channel mode should be faster

    I had a similar situation: a single 8 GB module, which of course caused single channel mode. I replaced the single module with two 4 GB modules and the result was a visible faster system, using Kodi Jarvis RC1.

    YMMV,
