Hi Guys,

I have a Gigabyte z-87 motherboard and 3 x 4gb sticks of corsair Vengeance 1600mhz Ram.

If naming the slots 4 3 2 1 instead of the actual order (im at work so I cant see my motherboard) ram will only work in slots 2 and 1, if i put any in slots 3 or 4 the system wont boot. Ive tried with a stick in all four slots at the same time and it wont work ... Does anybody know whats causing this?

Prolly bent CPU socket pins. Take out the CPU and examine the pins with a magnifying glass under a bright light. Or RMA the board.
