try installing with a single stick of RAM
This solved the problem. Patriot DDR3 4gb (2 x 2gb kit) PSD34G1333KH is NOT COMPATIBLE with the Giabyte GA-H77M-D3H motherboard.
I used Patriot DDR3 8gb (2 x 4gb kit) PV38G160C0KGN for series7 platform and XMP ready. system is up and running and am using it right now to send this message. Thanks for the help, I greatly appreciate it!!
