So i was cleaning my system out put everything out and cleaned everything and put back everything to its places.

Booted my computer for like 8-10 times and fails (Twice boot @first it boots and restarts) and realize that i put the RAM in the WRONG WAY and smell a bit of burned stuff.

So i put my RAM properly now and here i am its now WORKING THANK GOD!

I just wanted to know the possible damages done? on my silly fcking mistake.?

Any risk?....

I opened "DXDIAG"
It still shows i have 8GB RAM.
No sight of problems on speed of my computer its still the same.

i7-2600k
6970 HD
ASUS p8z68-v-pro
corsair xms 8gb ram (x2)
1000w cooler master silent pro 80+ gold
*Just in case*

Exactly. You can't physically put them in the wrong way round - they aren't symmetrical :eek:
But in any case, if it still works then obviously the damage done wasn't terminal.

But i saw it on my own eyes...

Or maybe it was just delicately installed... i dunno because i smelled a bit electricity like a new motherboard out of the box SCENT

I dunno but when i properly installed my RAM my computer booted and finally get a signal out of my monitor.

My question is are there any risk any damages done by this silly mistake?

Anyways to check?

My COMPUTer right now is running fine now i think?

Been using this comp for (68 hrs)
"3 days since i put my ram the wrong way."

I'm being paranoid..
