I have a new build that's been causing some trouble. It has the above symptoms. I have checked the ram and they work, the motherboard is fine (or so I think) because I just had a rma on it for no post no led. I have checked the lga socket for bent pins; none. What I noticed was that when the cpu was out there was no reboot after 5 seconds. please help, thanks.

I need to ask do you get one short beep when the board boots.
App ballistics runs on 1.5v
Pny needs 1.65 v yes it`s small but it can have strange effects if under volted.
The board is in conflict setting the voltages right.
That is always why you buy a matched pair same speed and brand.
Like said if it works with just one kit of memory.
Then you have a conflict between the two types when fitted.
Through voltage required, speed, latency 9-9-9-24
Now if you do get one beep, but it shuts down after 5 seconds. then it can relate to the cpu overheating.
Meaning the board is shutting down to protect it from burning the cpu out.
So it means the cpu cooler may not be mounted right.
Double check it is seated right.
