    Poonagez,

    This could still be either a motherboard issue or a RAM issue. Run a couple more tests before you return the RAM.

    First, test the sticks individually in the slot closest to the CPU. If one stick generates errors when you run Memtest and the other does not then you have a bad stick of RAM. However, if both sticks generate errors I would suspect there is a problem with the motherboard.

    At that point you could test to see if the RAM works in one of the other slots. If the other slots are functioning then you can decide if you want to RMA the board or live with the limitation of not being able to use all 4 slots.

    I had this same thing happen to me on my new build last month. I had major system instability and could not get an OS to load. I ran Memtest86+, got millions of errors, and decided to send back the RAM. The new RAM did the exact same thing as the first set and to make a long story short I discovered that the memory DIMM slot closest to the CPU was bad. Both sticks of memory tested bad in that slot and tested just fine in all the other slots. Had I thought to spend another couple hours running some tests I could have saved myself 10 days of waiting for the RAM to show up and another 4-5 days waiting for the new Mobo to arrive.

    Well from what mrquick42 suggested, I was able to get my computer up and running. It seemed like the first RAM slot was also dead! I was also in the middle of purchasing new ram from newegg but I canceled it as I was reading what you suggested. Thanks alot man

    But you have bad board as well as dead ram slot, take it back for replacement and see if first RAM slot works after exchange it, that is what you paid for that working perfect condition out of box.

    if mine were bad as your, I will take it back to RMA dept quickly.

    Well I don't want to RMA it since I might get a worse board and don't want to wait a long time as well as pay for shipping. Having a dead ram slot isn't as bad as it sounds, so I rather stick with this until I replace it again some other time. Besides I don't have the other equipment that came with the motherboard
