Androguide.fr Posted March 1, 2013 Share Posted March 1, 2013 Yesterday night I installed a new sound card in my computer and I thought while I was at it I would also change my ram sticks' configuration (my H80i rad was blocking some of the slots, forcing me to run my 32gb (4x8) kit in dual-channel mode instead of quad-channel). So I moved the ram to clear the slots and installed the ram, a bit in a hurry and in darkness, with my case standing upwards and I unfortunately put one stick backwards, it seemed to clip-in properly but in fact did not, obviously. So I powered my pc on and it would shut down after a split second, and during the time I manage to blind-find the psu switch it rebooted and failed again. So that's when I saw one stick was looking a bit higher than the others (I was like "**** me!"...). Now I tried all sticks in each slot individually, as well as all 4 sticks i every configuration possible, claring cmos everytime, but no go, my mobo's debug led always displays the code 19 which corresponds to "pre-memory south bridge initialization is started" (and of course the pc won't post). There is no visual trace of damage on the ram sticks/pins whatsoever (neither on the mobo's ram slots). The leds on the sticks still light up and if I remove all sticks my mobo bips and displays the 55 code indicating no memory is installed. These two facts make me think my motherboard is ok but the ram is dead ?What do you guys think ? I have no other ddr3 ram around to test atm. Will corsair accept an RMA in this kind of situation ? (I bought this kit less than 2 weeks ago... And I live in France if this matters) The kit's reference is : CMD32GX3M4A1600C9 I'm so pissed about myself right now, don't go too hard on me for making this noob mistake:[pouts: My configuration : CPU : i7 3930kMotherboard : AsRock X79 Extreme 9GPU : Sapphirre HD 7970 Vapor-X Ghz EditionRAM : Corsair Dominator Platinum 1600mhz/CL9 (32gb - 4x8gb)PSU : Corsair HX1050Cooling : Corsair H80i Watercooling kitSound Card : Asus Xonar Essence STXCase : NZXT Phantom Off-subject : For the same build I have an H80i with the red color led not working and my HX1050 psu didn't come with the nice little case badge I saw in the unboxings :( Do you think the upcoming new H80i v1.0.5 firmware might solve the led issue ?
