Default Motherboard issue...

I recently purchased 2GB of Corsair XMS 184pin memory for my A8N-SLI Deluxe mobo. While instlaling the RAM however, one of the white clips broke off of the RAM slot. I had not forced the memory in unusually hard, and it seemed like the clip came loose and fell off rather broke, because after inspecting the mobo and clip, it didn't look like there was any damage.

Is this a serious problem or is it just a small peice I shouldn't worry about...

its a small peice that you really dont need to worry about as long the memory is in tight, it just helps lock the memory in place, if you have 2 sticks then stick them in the 2 slots with the black clips of you have 4 slots avail.

My problem is the clip broke off on one of the channels I need to use for DualChannel config. I don't think it's a big deal, the memory looks like its in real tight.
