Agree with the above, specially considering you splurged for the rockit instead of going the $5 route like me. They have some sort of warranty for any damage while using their kit. I'm not saying my $5 didn't work well or I had any damages, but that warranty should alleviate most of your concerns.

I have been abusing the crap out of my mem slots on my dark and haven't lost anything. literally swapped sticks out 50+ times in the last 3 days. I highly doubt its anything like that.
with these direct die setups you have to have descent pressure from the waterblock or w/e u use as well as perfect install of the direct die mount, for them to work... going direct die on my x299 was some of the most stressful stuff I did in my whole career in this hobby

point is I would definitely give the dark a few more shots.. CPU mounting can be tricky with delids.... I had a good percentage of people I sold delidded 6700ks freaking out cuz they thought their chips were dead, wwhen they didn't know how to mount them properly

(If y'all) ain’t ready for the old murder, then what you gonna do with the new me?

I'm afraid it's gone. I relidded it with LM and glued shut - still the same problem.
The dimm voltage led is blinking like an intermittent contact. I inspected the socket, slots and pcb for visual damages and found nothing.
