All parts are listed here:

I just built this new computer and for the most part everything has been fine. But when it comes to the RAM, I cannot get all the RAM slots filled. No matter what order I do, if there is a RAM stick in either of the right two RAM slots on my motherboard, the computer will not boot. I have tried all variations and a couple types of RAM. I am sure the RAM sticks are working fine as I have tested them on other motherboards. Any advice on how to fix this issue is greatly appreciated.

It is possible that the board has bad slots. If you are adding two sticks it is good practice to reset BIOS/CMOS before starting up with them.

make sure your mb has bios rev 2.7 installed there been a few ram patches. if you have the newest bios already then look under the cpu for bent pins or a seating issue. the memory controller is inside the cpu now.
