Compatibility with RAM

This will probably be an easy one.

I am building a new rig. However when I got everything put together and booted up, I have no picture. Fans run on the motherboard and PSU. Green led on the mobo is lit. No beep on boot but I have no external speakers hooked and did not have the case units hooked.

Parts used are as follows:
1. ASUS P8B75-M LX PLUS LGA 1155 Intel B75 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
2. Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x 4GB) 1600MHz DDR3 RAM Memory (CMZ8GX3MA1600C9B)
3. CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 600W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
4. Intel Core i5-3350P Ivy Bridge 3.1GHz (3.3GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 69W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80637i53350P
5. Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
6. EVGA 01G-P4-3650-KR GeForce GTX 650 Ti 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
7. COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO RR-212E-20PK-R2 Continuous Direct Contact 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler Compatible with latest Intel 2011/1366/1155 and AMD FM1/FM2/AM3+

So my only issue is this, upon further research, the ASUS website says my RAM is incompatible with my motherboard. (http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/LGA1155/P8B75-M_LX_...).

According to pcpartpicker.com (http://pcpartpicker.com/p/LpRe) They are compatible.

And finally, according to a more knowledgeable friend, he says the parts are compatible and should work because the timing is compatible. (He is the one who originally helped me to select parts as well.)

Any help is appreciated!

That list is about 2133mhz memory. The memory you picked is running at 1600mhz, it should be fine as long as it's 1.5v or below(which it is).
Try reseating your sticks or something. Maybe you have faulty RAM so try salvaging some ddr3 from another build to see which part's broken.

We used a mini HDMI to a television, in replacement of monitor, from the graphics card. We also went to the extent of using a VGA, and dvi to hdmi from the board itself.

I will attempt this tonight, when I get off work. Thank you for the suggestion.
