Then I added one stick at a time and got to the last stick and last slot and it wouldn't post, so I put that stick into another slot and it worked. I put the last stick in the last slot again and it posted. Its kinda weird because i thought maybe the last stick was bad but it worked in another slot. The other stick also worked it the last slot so it isn't the memory slot i guess. Anyway thanks again for all the help. I'm running prime95 right now to see if I get any memory errors. +rep for all that helped, you guys rock.
Thanks. I actually just put a water system in my computer and it wouldn't boot late last night after being off for a few days of installing everything. The DRAM light came on my board and I thought I was hosed since it wouldn't post and I had done a lot of rigging. Took out the CMOS battery for 30 seconds, put it back in. BAM post. That little battery is boss.
