There are a handful of not connected (NC) pins, but most of those in your image are connected.

PCBs have several layers, and not all traces will be on the top layer.

I asked them if it was ok to wait untill I had another system ready so I didn't have to go without a computer. 6 months or not..."

Time is not the issue with any RMA case. G.Skill has lifetime warranty, if the modules are not physically damaged, and the warranty sticker remains intact, they will send new modules even if the memory model no longer exists. They will send another kit of equal or greater value. My friend sent in dinosaur DDR and DDR2 "extreme" performance RAM, and G.Skill still sent him new modules.

The OP obviously failed to let the G.Skill rep know that there was a burnt pin, otherwise they would have told him it is not replaceable. Most likely he just said it was bad and not working, so they can say time doesn't really matter since they have lifetime warranty.

To answer your question, "Who sends back non-faulty hardware?"..

People that aren't sure if hardware is bad, or if they simply assume hardware is bad will send back hardware that is non-faulty.

I build systems and overclock for a living; I use a wide array of G.Skill memory from their entry level to top of the line so I am very familiar with their products. I have experienced a few defective modules, but definitely no poor business practices like you are describing. Sounds like you just had a bad experience with them before.

Somebody close this thread. OP is long gone. lol

Let's GO 9ers!

I think something prevented you from seeing timisyourfriend advice, larymoencurly it seems all you want to do is argue, just let this thread die please!

One person said there are unused pins on memory modules and showed a picture demonstrating that fact. The other person said, "there are no unused contact pins on a DDR3 module." How is either person fanning flames on this point?

Same as a cpu, there are a few ground pins on say an AMD cpu. Some people carelessly break off the pins and the cpu will still work and overclock as new.

That still doesn't explain unconnected pins on DDR3, and the person who said, "there are no unused pins on a DDR3 module" would probably argue that the comparison is invalid because CPUs and DIMMs are different, just as he said connections for DIMMs and plug-in cards can't be compared.
