As long as you reset the BIOS, I don't think they will figure out you've been overclocking.. All you have to tell them, is you smelled burning, and on investigation, found the burnt socket. They will find the same, and hopefully honour the warranty. smile.gif

Bext of luck!

Overclocking usually does not burn memory slots. It is possible the motherboard had a problem to begin with.
I've had memory slots fry on me on a non-overclocked system. Something shorts and the memory goes up in smoke.

Warranty should be no issue.

Just remember this - blown capacitors blew because of something happening in the electrical current/circuit, not because the capacitor was crap. I mean, capacitors can blow because they're of really low quality, yes; but we're not dealing with old Dell boards here.

So in any case, remember that if you replace the capacitor without tracing the events that led to it blowing, if those events keep on happening then you're only going to end up with a blow capacitor again. redface.gif

i bought my pc 2 years ago and almost since then, before i install my actual ram kit and even before knowing what ocing was, some times i smelled burned electronics so i called the store and they told me not to concern because it probably was dust being burned by the rigs heat.... what can i say?!?!

When in doubt don't say anything. Just say your PC stopped working and you found black marks on the RAM slot.
Let them make up their own stories. Say Godzilla breathed on it biggrin.gif

If you can post pictures you should. It'll be much easier to see what you're describing, but from the sound of it yes that seems pretty odd. thinking.gif
