Why only half of the ram is usable ?

I recently bought a new amd processor for my pc (AMD FX 8350 Black Edition) and since I installed it, my RAM is not totally usable anymore. Windows says me that there is 12GB (2x4GB and 2x2GB), but that only 6GB are usable.
And when I try to remove my 2 sticks of 2GB of RAM, then I get only 4GB of 8GB usable on Windows.


Can the processor be the cause of the problem ? And how can I solve it ?


Thank you
