First Build memory problems

I'm using this motherboard and this ram. First my system seemed to be working ok. Then when I tried to use a linux live cd and install windows I got errors. Now for some reason it's stopped working all together. It does not post unless I take out the ram, then it repeats one long beep and 2 short beeps over and over again until I power it off. I have tried both ram sticks by themselves and have gotten the same result. I have also tried using the jumpers to clear the cmos and leaving the battery out overnight(with the computer unplugged of course), none of these methods have worked.
Edit: I'm breadboarding now, I'll post results when I'm done

breadboarding: cpu mobo and heatsink only, 1long beep then 2 short beeps, repeated until turned off.

Cpu, mobo, heatsink, ram: No post, memok doesn't seem to help.

Edit: Take out ram and add gpu: 1long beep then 2 short beeps, repeated until turned off.
Edit 2: I snapped in both ram sticks another time and they worked! They just seem very fickle and require many tries to get in properly.
