hey guys, first timer on Tom's hardware although I've been using it as reference to all my problems regarding desktop builds and what not to do's for years

ran into an interesting issue with my Gigabyte X58A-UD3R while attempting to install a fresh set of Kingston HyperX 2x8GB Memory Set (KHX1600C10D3B1K2/16GB)

my pc just gives me the blank stare and won't boot up with it in

I currently run 2 kits of 2x2GB Corsair XMS3 at 1600 as well, I'm not too sure what to do at this point, I thought at first it was perhaps because I wasn't running triple channel but then realized I never did run triple channel to begin with.

any help would be greatly appreciated

I forgot to mention my motherboard is rev.1 and I recently discovered that my bios is quite old (F4) how would I come about updating it

I can't Q Flash because the file is apparently too big, and I heard using @Bios was potential harmful
