So i bought another memory stick, i should have 32GB, but free -h lists total memroy as 27Gi.
~ free -h ✔ 14s total used free shared buff/cache available Mem: 27Gi 1,9Gi 23Gi 189Mi 1,8Gi 24Gi Swap: 16Gi 0B 16Gi ~ free ✔ total used free shared buff/cache available Mem: 27945 1905 24236 189 1803 25476 Swap: 16894 0 16894
sudo lshw -short -C memory sees all 32GB.

Where’s the other 5 gb?
Is this some kind of 1000 vs 1024 thing like with SSds? They list 500GB but you actually get 450GB because of different calculations?
In BIOS (or rather UEFI), it sees both sticks normally, and lists 32 GB.
Both are Crucial 16GB 3200 CL22 sticks (though, one gets recognized as Micron in bios).
They don’t look the same, but i assume that’s just some manufacturing process thing? The sytem does recognize 32 GB and the speed and all, just not sure why
free is showing 27 total.
Just curious where those 5GB went, and if it’s something that i should be concerned about - as in - faulty memory or something.
When i had 16GB
free showed 15, but that’s just 1 GB discrepancy, this is 5…
Also, how do i check if they’re running in dual channel?
