Dead RAM slots 01/21/2014
This review is from: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Looks like it would be a nice board under different circumstances.
2 of the 4 RAM slots were DOA. Tested the ram itself and different ram with same failures. No other hardware problems like bent pins in the CPU slot or anything of that nature. Of course now I can't get an RMA from Newegg as they have claimed that I bent pins which would be a lie as well. If I were to have bent pins I wouldn't have sent it back for 2 of the 4 ram slots failing. So I am out $130 for a piece of useless equipment now.
Completely ridiculous that I can't get an RMA for supposedly bending pins when there was nothing wrong with the board besides the dead ram slots when I packaged it nice and safely in the box and gave it to UPS.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. ASRock mainboards are fully tested to assure the quality.
The CPU socket had been covered with protection CAP to avoid damage the pins.
