Broken DIMM retention clip

Hi forum

Recently I have been having boot issues resulting in the Q-code 34 and every time its seemed to resolve itself. Today it occured again and I believe I finnally found the cause being a broken retention clip on the dimm slot. I am not sure if this happened during installation or if the clip was faulty when I bought it. Only being a year old I have requested an RMA from Asus and I am awaiting a reply. Anyone ele had any experience when it has come to replacement of these clips?4994349944

Hello

This is a good option to try. Physical damage is not normally covered by the warranty.

All fixed, good as new apart from being a black clip in a grey slot but can't tell in the case. Thanks dead mobo
