Hello

I installed an AIO water cooler in my pc, it took sometime and after I finished I had some trouble powering up the PC in the boot screen it showed me “overclocking failed “ press F1 to enter bios menu
After that I entered into the pc windows but i saw that one of the 4 ram sticks is not showing (I only can see 12gb in windows computer properties). Then I turned off the pc and tried checking BIOS, same thing 12gb and the 4th stick isn’t showing , I can’t figure out if the problem is permanent or not, I know the slot is the one not working not the stick. I have never tried to overclock the pc so I am not sure what caused that
Any help is appreciated

First make sure all the ram sticks are fully pushed into their sockets, the catch(es) at the end of each slot should click into place and all be in the same position.

If the slot is faulty there's nothing you can do, only cure is to get another motherboard.

For the 'overclocking failed' message the Cmos battery could need replacing, it powers the chip that stores the Bios settings when the computer is switched off.
For now go into the Bios and select the 'set everything to default' setting, the wording can differ but you should be able to find it. Don't forget to save changes. That should stop the overclocking failed message.

Also a non working ram slot can be caused by bent pins on the CPU or socket during installation.
