When I see something like that it seems to me that the chip was nicked. I have seen chips fry and most of the time they were dinged by something. The little flaw causes the chip to heatup and burn.

Yeah, I have no idea what caused it to fry. It still remains a mystery.

Steve Max: Congrats on your successful purchase but from this day on, I'm never going near an Apacer RAM.
