    Z270H Not recognizing first 2 DIMM Slots

    I went to re-apply thermal paste on my cooler (thumb tightened plate down) and was faced with memory not recognized.
    I also reset the bios by pulling the battery:

    Initial Config was mem in slot 2 and 4


    -Through testing found that stick in slot 2 was dead (wont work in any slot)
    -remaining stick only works in slot 4
    -Will not go to bios if any stick is in slot 1 or 2 (dead or working).

    I read about coolers bending boards that might effect this. I did loosen the cooler plate- still same issue.
    could I have shorted out or damaged this portion of the board

    If the slots 1-2 are dead- why wont the PC boot with a dead stick installed?
