    Default New RAM prevents GA-P55-USB3 from starting

    I recently bought 4 GB of new memory to my computer, but when I try starting it after putting them in the slots the computer doesn't start - no BIOS, no startup screen, just a black monitor. The motherboard in question in GA-P55-USB3, and the memory is Corsair CMX4GX3M2A1600C9 4 GB (2x2). I picked this memory because they are the exact ones that are in the computer to start with, so that I wouldn't have any compatibility issues - that worked out well...

    My old RAM was in slots 1 and 3, and I put the new ones in 2 and 4. I can start the computer without any problem with both the new and old RAM, as long as it's only 4GB (i.e. one pair) and they're in slots 1 and 3 - as soon as I try to go up to 8 GB the computer won't start.

    What is the problem here? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I have now updated to the latest stable BIOS, going from F8 to F9, which didn't help. There is a beta version (F10g) as well, but I thought it'd be best to stick to stable versions. I also tried setting the QPI/TT voltage to 1.35, but that didn't do anything either. Other ideas?
