X670 motherboards: ASRock's useful RAM sticker sticks too well

Some ideas only seem practical at first glance. This is also the case with the sticker with instructions for installing the RAM bars on ASRock X670 motherboards. The on-site instructions are practical, but the sticker must first be removed before installation – and that causes problems.

A picture says more than a thousand words: the photo by Reddit user BuzzBumbleBee shows the unspeakable sticker directly on the RAM sockets of the ASRock X670E Taichi after a failed attempt to remove it in one piece. It is unclear whether he has now managed to completely remove the sticker. According to his last comment, he wanted to get a few more alcohol swabs for the next attempts and then report back later.

It is obviously not an isolated case, because other users report under others on Twitter confirming this.

So if you're looking to buy one of ASRock's recently released X670(E) motherboards, be warned about it this way to hastily remove the annoying sticker. Warming up the adhesive beforehand with a hair dryer or hot air gun (careful!) could prevent inconvenient reworking.
