That's weird... Maybe you can try fix it anyway
Probably an active forum member following this thread..
As mentioned by others, try and fix it. It is not that hard to bend the pins back to normal.
I think the pins are as back as possible. OCUK still haven't shipped they must have quite a backlog
I am the seller. I'll send you my address to send it back to me now
You wouldn't also happen to be my uncle would you? From Nigeria? You still owe me that gold you said about.
I need to know now!
I wouldn’t even waste time trying to fix that mess let alone stick it into a motherboard if it was sorted out.
Do they sell many computer parts? I think some sellers just buy lots of returned stuff at auction and maybe they took a quick peek in the box and didn't even realise it was broken.
Use a mechanical pencil to straighten them.
Edit, also.. just saw you got refund. Upto you, fix and re-refund the seller, or just send it back
You can explain those misleading photographs whilst you are at it too!

PDP delivering today... Should know if it works by the morning
My bad, confused with thread below mentioned earlier in this thread. [red face]
That's ok then, I can speak English again
Half way through the repair
Plugging it together
Only one memory slot works.
So, with only mild persuasion I got the processor into the socket. No real issues there, any pin that remained slightly out of line was forced straight.
After that very first boot (leading to the screenshot above) I moved the main memory stick to slot A2, and then booted - fine.
Then I added a second to slot B2, and it doesn't POST. The DRAM light on the B450A comes on.
Tried both sticks in slot A2 - gets to the BIOS fine. Tried to reseat with the two stick configuration - no dice.
At this point i don't know what to do.
I could pick up a single stick of HyperX FURY 16GB (HX432C16FB3/16) but the graphs that Gerardfraser produced in another thread (https://forums.overclockers.co.uk/t...crificing-dual-channel-memory.18878499/page-2)
are worrying me.
Tell me what to do!
