It's up and running now, thanks! Hopefully the other two RAM sticks will work after everything is installed. I guess God heard my prayers for me not to have to send anything back and wait any longer to get it up and running!
Did you manually set the RAM timings and voltage to the manufacturers specs in the BIOS? That RAM is rated for 8-8-8-24 timings at 1.65v. You also may have a bad stick of RAM. Start off by setting the RAM to specs. If it still doesn't work, you'll have to try each stick of RAM individually to try to find the faulty stick. Did you read the checklist posted above? It goes through all this plus a lot more.
