Try out each stick in the 1st slot. That should tell you if it's the RAM or not. It was a royal pain in the butt to figure out which slot it was and whether it was RAM or a slot but all 4 chips Posted up in 1st slot. Which is nice for me cause that's $250 bucks of RAM that the issue had me thinking was DoA.
At least I didn't get my High Dollar GPU, stay with 4 Gb of GSkills(solid RAM btw) and then find out I had an issue after the month Retailer RMA warranty had passed. Brand new is 100x > than Manufacture Warranty for any manufacturer.
