RAM problem

Hey guys,

Just recently I bought new Kingston Hyperx performance RAM to replace my old crappy 1333mzh ram, but I ran into a problem. Once i install the new RAM modules and power up the PC, it stays on for 5-10 seconds and shuts down. After that it restarts itself repeating the cycle. This is what the PC does also when no RAM at all is installed. My motherboard does seem to support 1866mzh RAM, as far as the specifications go, but something isn't quite working. Have you guys got any suggestions?

PC specifications are:

i5 3570k @4.3ghz OC

Nvidia GTX 660ti MSI Power Edition

650w Coolermaster PSU

2x 7200rpm HDD

120gb kingston HyperX SSD

NZXT tempest evo case

8gb ddr3 ram

MSI Z77a g43 motherboard

And this is the new RAM

-The PC works when i install the old ram, so all the other components are fully working...
