ASUS P5N32SLI Deluxe Ram Slot quit working?

Intel 950D
ASUS P5N32-SLI Deluxe
2 x Giel PC@-5300 (1 DIMM in slot A1, 1 DIMM in slot B1: dual channel config)
2 x GeForce 7800 GT
WinXP Pro SP2 etc

last night system locked up. Rebooted and would not POST. Tried a bunch of things that did not work. I took the DIMM out of slot B1 and system POSTed and booted fine. So i figure that the DIMM must have gone bad.

As a check, I took the 'newley deemed bad' DIMM and put it in RAM slot A1 and the system POSTed and booted fine. I put the other DIMM in slot B1 (with other DIMM in A1) and no POST.

I then put 1 DIMM in A1 and the other in A2 and the system posted and booted well. Of course, I get no dual channel this way.

So, did the B1 slot go bad for some reason? Anybody see this issues before?

any input would be welcomed.

  1. Time to RMA the board.
    This is not uncommon for the P5N32 SLI Deluxe board although it usually looses the pci e X16 slot 1
    I have rma'd more of these boards than I care to reveal
  2. thanks for the input. I figured as much. I didn't know of it was normal to lose slots like this.
