Have you checked that everything is plugged in correctly? The 24 pin cord to the MOBO plus the 4/8 pin for the CPU and the PCIe power for the GPU?
I'd try to test with a different PSU since this sounds like it could be a power supply issue.

Also, unplug your system, reseat the RAM and try again. Static charges in the system can cause problems that look a lot worse than they are.
