    system not registering all ram modules


      Recently built my new system (Aus P6X58D-E, i7 980X) and on boot noticed that only picked up two of the three ram modules, did the usual checks of swapping them around and found that it was a particular slot (B1) that appeared not to be working. I then stripped it all down to send back to my supplier and noticed a bent pin (AR11) in the cpu socket, warrenty now void :-(  ...  I have since straightened the offening pin and rebuilt the system but still no joy with the memory. And my question is:-

      Is there a way of verifying that when a cpu is inserted into its socket that all the pins in the socket are in contact with the cpu and would this prevent the system for detecting the memory
