gskill pi - problem

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys

I have been running this kit for awhile now and only just came to realise that there was something wrong with one of the pins.

It would appear that the micron gold plating has somehow worn off one of the pins. I am absolutely certain that the ram was installed correctly (I did it myself) and there is only one way ram goes in

Here are some pictures






My question to you guys is do you think that gskill would agree to replace the stick of ram?

I have some problems with my computer from time to time, i believe that the ram could be one of the causes. I get bsods and basically starts dumping.

any feedback would be highly appreciated.

thank you
Ren

Did you get it brand new out of the box?

I am afraid you may need to prove it was faulty before you installed it, because installing PC hardware by oneself is a bit of a risk. It definately shouldn´t void warranty, but its not in favor for you when it comes to RMA-ing that stick. Don´t know much about return policies in down under...

Well I do not have pictures of the ram prior to installation if that is what you are asking. I just believe that the method they use to coat the ram pins should not wear off like this especially on one single pin the micron gold plating has just worn off.

I only noticed it recently when I went to clean my computer. I did not check before hand if it was damaged or not. I have sent the support tech an email and hopefully they will get back to me soon.

I myself have installed other ram sticks in this particular motherboard they were corsair xms 3 1333 ram and nothing happened to those pins and i have checked the ram sockets themselves to make sure it wasnt the cause.

and yes i did get them brand new from the box i have the box in my lap right now
