Please listen to this :

Since I upgraded the bios of my mobo, Sandra and some other similar programs indicate that my system has 4 ram slots. Well this mobo definitely has only 3. Please note that the upgrade was downloaded from the manufacturer's site and everything was doublechecked. I do not have any problems of stability or whatever but plese enlight me on what could the "misunderstanding" be.

Many thanks

There are 4 slots defined in the DMI. It will not cause any problems - it's for your information only.
