It's probably the ram, double check the timmings, maybe loosen them, try one stick only, also make sure you're using the orange slots only.

Is it giving you any errors? Like could not locate HDD...? If memory is not the issue make sure all your hdd connections are secure. Those damn SATA cords can be a pain.
