I checked the pins and I ended up just taking the board back and i got a replacement yesterday. Maybe the board wasnt bad and I could have saved myself a trip to the store because it could have been as simple as reseating the cooler... Whole point in me asking and you're the only person that has even tried to be helpful.

I've got a running computer with both sticks installed now so it doesnt really matter what the issue was anymore.
