Asus Maximus III Formula boot issue


I just joined this site and it seems to be pretty helpful. Anyways, i'm currently working on a new rig and I'm having a boot up issue. I'm using Mushkin DD3 1600 Ram on an ASUS Maximus III Formula socket 1156 board. I was able to get to BIOS once and when I shut down to install another stick of ram, I got no video signal. All fans, lights, hard drives and optical drives all powered up but I noticed the red Q-LED light for Ram was on. I reseated the ram and tried each stick one by one in each slot... still not getting a video signal. I did send the RAM back and currently waiting on a replacement. I just want to know if anyone else has had this issue and how would I know if its not the motherboard?
