  1. You need to put the memory voltage if different from 1.8v in the bios.
    Run memtest86+ and check for errors.
    Are those 4 sticks or 2 sticks of RAM?
    Tell us more about that power supply, model and brand.
  2. psu is a
    Ultra LS500 Lifetime Series 500W Power Supply - ATX, SATA-Ready, PCI-Express,

    Hello
    Yes I was able to resolve the problem
    You must flash the Bios to the newest one from the Gigabyte site
    In my case The Bios had set the ram to 1.5 volts and it needed to be 1.9 volts

    What kind of ram do you have ?????
    What voltage dose it say it needs to run????
    Go into the bios and manually set the timings and voltage I think this will sole your problems

    Let me know

    Good Luck !!!!!!!
