Well it is definetly only running a single channel. It cant be post with one stick either..

Tried every combo of slots. No dice.

I would, but I fear it will get rejected by newegg. I mean, its hardly obvious. But a couple of pins might be off by a degree or two. And their is a tiny mark on the corner of the lid and the corner of the pcb fractured slightly.

Do you mean as in group A and B? I already tried putting each stick in their own channel and I cant post. Cant post with a single stick either. The only way I can boot is with them in like colored slots. Another thing too, by default, my mobo downclocks the ram to 1600, 11,11,11,28. Even at those speeds it still doesnt work.
