My motherboard won't detect my RAM

Hello,
I purchased this motherboard http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2406888&CatId=6976
and this RAM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231529
But the BIOS beeps are telling me (No memory detected. Are they not compatible? I even sent back the RAM and got a new set and it still didn't work.

  1. The RAM you chose is a quad channel kit and the motherboard runs in dual channel, and the RAM is not on the supported RAM list for that motherboard. So, now that the obvious reasons are out of the way, the RAM itself does say in the details....

    Quad channel memory designed for Intel LGA2011 and X79 systems
    Compatible with Intel LGA1155 and AMD Llano/AM3+ platforms
    Intel XMP support for 2nd and 3rd Generation Intel Core Processors

    So, if you can boot into BIOS and go to Memory settings you should be able to choose XMP profile so it will recognize it. Try that and see if it works. If you set AI Overclock Tuner to manual, you should be able to set the frequency of the RAM or just set to XMP Profile #1.
