Yeah I know. If things were okay, it should have just worked the very first time I installed it (In the black slots) but it didn't, hence this whole thread. I put the mobo serial number in asus support website and it still has two years warranty although my friend has had it for about a year which is nice. I think it came with 3 years warranty. How is the RMA process with ASUS? Haven't done it myself before. Smooth and seamless?
