    Return to Newegg or RMA through ASRock

    I know, avoid Newegg as much as possible. In this case the deals were just too good. My Asrock board will only recognize channel a memory, so I think it has to go back. Is it preferable to exchange with Newegg or RMA via Asrock? (I am aware of the new egg issues and am prepared to...
