Hey everyone,
So basically, the primary RAM slot on my mobo died. I have a single 8GB RAM stick. I shifted it to the second RAM slot and the PC was able to do POST. The BIOS showed a warning for "unsupported memory configuration" but I ignored it. The PC works fine now but will this cause any problems in the long-term? Or is there any significant performance loss?

If it works, it works, try resetting CMOS to get rid of that message.
