Assembled my first build ever! Finished up, plugged it in, and got nothing but the fans running. The motherboard power led is green, but my biggest concern is the MemOK! red led is blinking. That's it. There aren't any beeps either.

I removed the video card, tried the memory stick in each of the four slots, tried without any memory at all, and have had the same results every time. Fan run, leds light/blink, and no beeping. I've carefully gone over all my connections and everything seems to be fine. I even tried the CMOS reset with the jumper according to my manual and nothing. I'm guessing I probably have either bad ram or a bad motherboard. Still, any advice? Anything else worth trying?
I tried the memory tuning according to my manual. As for the QVL list, the exact model doesn't seem to be listen in either my manual or the website though other, similar models are. I asked at the G.Skll forums about compatibility and there don't seem to be any issues thought I'm not sure. I'm going to ask around and see if anyone I know has a stick of memory I could try.
