Hi, everything on my mobo seems to run fine but one of my four ram slots doesn't work, is there any way to fix this? Or could I just keep the mobo since i only want 24gb of ramthat... Is this the first sign of a bad motherboard or only a coincidence? The motherboard is very very new, purchased yesterday. It's an asus p877- v pro.

Hi, Usually it's related to CPU socket bent pins.

And if I checked and there are no bent pins?

Then probably a bad slot contact.

If it's under warranty, and you don't need it for a while, why not? But I would check again the socket using a magnifying glass or by taking a high res picture.
