In my case it was the X300 DeskMini motherboard which was broken, I swapped the processor and the issue remained.

Hi,

I also have a broken B1 Ram Slot. I double checked the CPU Pins, that really wasn't the problem. Better be careful when inserting SO-Dimms, don't bend the Motherboard, give it counterpressure from below.
Really unfortunate.

Hi again,

I spent the whole day assembling and disassembling the the whole system, and I fixed it on the 6th attempt.
It was in fact a slightly slightly bent CPU Pin. If you look on the CPU, the side that faces the memory banks, the outer pins, that was it for me.

I also used a soft toothbrush with alcohol to completely wipe all thermal paste and used magnifying glasses, headlights and macro photos to help in the process.
I also brushed the socket with the toothbrush and alcohol.

Hope you guys have the patience.

You really don't want single channel ram.
