Hey all,

Recently my Ram stability fell apart, after taking everything apart I noticed the following

One Pin towards the bottom is non uniform, This is a bent pin correct? I feel as if I have seen a few Mobos with a wire that goes through/wire that pases through on the side. Just looking for someone to confirm/deny my insanity.

Motherboard is a Gigabyte Aruoras pro WIfi

If you have some tweezers, just bend that pin back to how it should be. Careful not to break it off though. Does your motherboard have 4 ram slots? If so, the RAM should be in slots 2 and 4, so that it goes empty, RAM, empty, RAM.

Yeah I would try bending it back, does not need to be perfect just needs to touch the contact on the CPU, like said above be careful not to break it off or bend other pins. If slots 2 and 4 wont run in dual channel you can try 1 and 3 usually not recommended but 1 and 3 are still capable of dual channel.
