So I have a pair of dual channel Corsair Vengeance DDR3 memory that usually run in the recommended setup but now booting is not an option in this configuration. I can only get a POST when I remove the memory furthest from the CPU heatsink and this is how I am forced to run at the moment.
I have tested every DIMM slot in all variations, dual channel in the first pair and dual channel in the second pair, I get nothing. I have tested both sticks of memory by themselves and they both work no problem.
Its clear that the memory is in full working order so would you say there is a fault with the DIMM slots themselves and if so should I try an RMA with Gigabyte?
Also if anyone knows where to create an RMA for Gigabyte products could you let me know too with a link perhaps?
I have had the memory installed in this way for months, set up perfectly fine in dual channel mode. I should say though recently I found in my CPU socket that one pin appears to have snapped off, do you think this would cause a problem with the DIMM slots?
