    TFW you try to boot up your new PC and after an hour of diagnostics you find out one of your RAM sticks is dead.
    Time for an RMA and yet another delay on actually being able to use my PC.

    On the bright side, the amount of relief I'll feel when I finally get to start it up will be amazing.

    Also side note the fan that came with my radiator seems to have also broken with no seeming cause.
    Overbudget with alot of problems but it'll be so great when it finally comes to exist in the world of computadors.

    No clue. Just one of the sticks made it so the system wouldn't post. Woulda worked fine with just the stick that worked but then i'd have paid £50 extra for nothing. Another kit is already on the way anyway. Hoping it gets here by tomorrow but who knows with delivery dates now.

    Even sadder news, something else is probably broken and i have no cue what.
    When i have the "broken" ram stick in, things whirr up and then shut down after 5 seconds.
    "working" ram stick in is about 19 seconds, which is the same as when i don't have any ram plugged in.
    :'(

    Funny looking back at this. I still haven't managed to get it to post. I've had every problem in the goddamn book.
