It dosnt matter. If the board uses DDR3 ram that means that any ram thats built to DDR3 Standards will work.

Probably DOA ram or Mobo..

Have a PCI post card?

Amazon.com: ASUS P7P55 LX - LGA 1156 - Intel P55 - DDR3 - ATX Motherboard: Electronics
Does the CPU LED stay on or stay on and then go off? If it goes off after you boot up, I'm betting bent CPU pins.
