Most of your internal connectors are not designed to withstand constant disconnect/reconnections, that includes the RAM slots.

I would say more than 8 times is about the breakpoint. Why are you swapping in and out the RAM so many times?

Update (09/22/2016)

The image looks just fine! The slot pin is not designed to be bottomed out with the module if that was your concern. Here's an image from the IFIXIT teardown: Memory modules seated correctly in the slot so you can see its the same.

Lets backup here ...

Forget about the RAM for now. What is happening with your system is it working or not? If not explain what you are seeing as best as you can. Did you replace something? Did you smell, hear or see something?
