    "So can we conclude it was the one bent socket contact only, or that plus the bad or incompatible PS?"
    They were two separate problems. With the ASUS board, replacing the power supply made no difference to the memory slots that weren't working. It wasn't until the pin was flattened down, so that it would be under the CPU, that all slots were working.

    Thanks, it was a bit confusing plus the hardware changes. The ASRock board remains a mystery regarding it's issue, unless that was just the PS, but that seems weird.

    The issue with the Asrock was the PS and the BIOS chip (combined). Asrock sent me two more chips (P1.30 BIOS). Installing them made no difference till I replaced the PS as well. After changing the PS I tested the board with the P1.10 BIOS first and the result was exactly the same as it was before changing the PS. Then I changed the BIOS chip and for the first time the board worked as it should.

    Reply to Ma56ryjl and parsec:

    I live in Australia and when I buy components I buy them online and have them delivered by courier or postal service. Sometimes I don't receive them for a week or more after paying for them, or even longer if they're not in stock. Unfortunately I don't have an opportunity to inspect them before paying. If I have to return a part, it may be up to two months before it is repaired or replaced. If it turned out it wasn't faulty I'd be paying freight both ways. That was why I didn't return the Asrock board, even though I thought it was a DOA. It was quicker to order another board.
