Title:

RAM not showing the right amount?

Text:

Hey everyone,

Just did a logic board swap last month in my 2014 retina mbp. I bought the part off ebay, part number 661-00612 according to the listing. This specific board is supposed to have 16gb of RAM, but in my system report it only shows that I have 8gb available.

Do I need to do any systems configuration to unlock my the other 8gb I’m supposed to have or did I perhaps get sold the wrong part? Is there a way to tell on the physical board itself which part number it has?

For reference, when I got the new logic board I did a clean boot. Manually backed up my files, wiped the SSD, and installed mojave from scratch, and it’s been working great ever since.

I was probably going to contact the ebay seller about this as well, but I thought I’d check here first to make sure it wasn’t something I was doing.

Thanks
