RAM: Not what we'd think. Apparently, the best way to install sensitive components so they "get the signals". If this results in something not working the part must be defective (if you mean the human 'part' that tried to install the other part, then yes).
If this results in bent pins on a CPU, I'm supposed to 'fix it, it's just wire you can bend it back right?' with pliers (I'm not touching that as I have never done it before and have no way of knowing what else you borked).
