well, i kinda messed up, i should have seen it at first, i have 2 sticks and they both show up in bios and cpu id and all that. i decided to take out the stick in B2 it booted with one in A2. i took out the one in A2 and B2 and put the one from B2 into A2, booted up and i got the annoying motherboard speaker telling me of a hardware failure i guess the 2nd stick is bad. i hope i can rma one stick so i dont have to wait a week to get a new one
Yeah it happens. Unfortunately if you bought a Dual Channel Kit they want you to send both back. It will take a while (about 2 weeks). You might want to just pick up a cheap single stick so you have a computer to use. Also check the bad stick in all of the slots to make sure it's not the slot.
