You put 1 stick in slot A1 and see I CPU-Z finds it, then put a stick in slot A2 and see if it finds both sticks, then B1 and finally B2 slots. Your comp will boot with just 1 good stick of RAM. If 1 stick is recognized in sloat A1 then take it out and Put it in slot B1 to see if it will boot.
You get the idea yet?
ran memtest86+ on all my ram sticks - 2 hrs on 2 sticks making a total of 4hrs and a total of 5 passes.
ran memtest86 to test CPU for 2hrs - pass with flying colors as well.
Conclusion, bad motherboard.
I just returned the motherboard and got the ASRock Extreme4. Set it up, and boot just fine (although there was some trouble in getting USB drivers installed when you can't even use the keyboard to login. Simple fix though with safe mode boot). Thanks a lot for the recommendation.
