Shouldn't these two work together? Or did I miss a small detail?
I tried putting these 2 together with 8GB of DDR3 and it wouldn't boot.
I tried every amount of trouble shooting I could possibly find it just wouldn't boot for me. So I am assuming the motherboard is defective.
I have built a few computers, so I have some prior experience in building.
Assuming that you have installed everything correctly, I would advise you to double check the ram. If you have two cards running at different voltages, the system might not boot. install one ram card first and then try.
