So there I was, about to put in two more sticks of RAM, when I noticed this problem (see attached). I'm betting this is one of a kind.
Here's my spec:
Intel® Core i7-4770 CPU @ 3.40GHz
mobo: MSI Z87-G41 PC Mate(MS-7850)
and is this something I could replace myself or can it be tricky? I'm ok with plugging stuff into my motherboard and that's where my expertise ends. I'm guessing it may involve the removal and re-application of thermal paste etc.?
