I'm not convinced there was a problem with your RAM at all. Removing your plug from that header should have completely sorted it. However, if you haven't already - now that you've sorted this issue I would swap the CMOS jumper to be 100% sure that there aren't any phantom settings lurking, then boot it and continue as you would.

Adding the second stick of ram sticks me at code "F.F." and nothing happens :/

Edit: Got it past F.F. but now it's at "38."

Edit 2: Make that 45.

Edit 3: And now to 58.

All the while no display.

When you added the first stick, did you boot to BIOS and set the timings before adding the second?

No

I reset CMOS, plugged the stick in, and booted it up.

It's actually working now once I moved the 2nd stick out of the other blue slot and put it in the black slot.

With a clear CMOS, plug a stick of RAM into slot A2 (blue one nearest the CPU) and boot the machine. Once in the BIOS, set the RAM timings and then save them. With the machine off, set the second stick of RAM into slot B2 (the other blue slot). Reset.

Your machine should be all good!

No problem bud, it's what we're here for. I'm assuming now all is well and it's running as it should?

Possible dumb question ahead...

I've noticed some graphics artefacts in some (older) games I played today. Could this at all be related to my cpu overclock?

Naahh.. It's either the Nvidia driver or the graphics card causing it.

By the way, be gentle with that GTX 570 and overclocking. They tend to have a weak Power Phase setup. Many of these cards have blown up from overvolting GPU and overclocking. Also, many people have destroyed them by overclocking the Video RAM too far.

I keep GTX 570 at stock now. It's fast enough

I'll try re-installing the driver, hopefully that'll fix it.

I wonder if one of the bsod's during stress testing could have corrupted it?

Dont worry, I have no plans to OC my 570 which is why I got the SC edition... as you said, it's fast enough
