Well i went to the Gigabyte website but it says nothing about support for 8 GB gskill dimms but only 2 and 4 gb. Im guessing I'm screwed over on RAM then? Im going to try to isolate the problem right now jolly roger

If you got one free with the mobo are you sure that one is also 8GB?

What processor exactly do you have? 

 

I just see either a bad PSU or a compatibility issue.

I tried just putting power to the fan controller and not my storage or optical, but that changed nothing

Is your Cougar PSU new?

 

The only 8GB on the list is a Samsung.
