GeeZ!!!

I swapped my Collemaster HSfan with the Copper ZaLmAn to reach 1600mhz ... while removing the mobo out of my case I think I broke one of my 2 256er sticks ... very sad!

Now I am back with 256 RAM :cry:

Tomorrow I will bring it back to the store and replace it :D Perhaps I will buy a 512 instead the 256 ...
It has to have an advantage after breaking one of them ;)

256mb is not bad...

how did you manage to break it though?

did you physically brake a part off?
