Windows won't boot but can't find the error?

Just bought;

i5 3570k
asrock extreme 4
kingston hyperx beast @24000mhz

After installing all the hardware when it comes to booting windows we get 2 seconds into the windows icon loading then a blue screen appears for like 2 seconds and then the pc reboots itself which doesn't give us enough time to determine what the error is. Tried unplugging the graphics card and using on board graphics and same thing still happens. We reinstalled windows off of another pc and still can't get it to boot.

any ideas why?
