          i haven't looked at it in any detail, but maybe u populated the slots wrong. i think the blue slots should be populated first in dis case.

              There is something about Intel BIOS's that have a problem with DDR3 Ram that is 10666, You have to use 10600, or you can get all kinds of problems, Not sure why unless it's the66Mhz moore on the RAM , But everytime I've seen this using 10600 Ram fixed the problem.

                  another post in the tigerdirect forum: Bought this board after weeks of looking at what was available. I like the performance I am getting. At 1st POST had only a minor problem with memory but after I booted the system and updated the BIOS (was easy with Intel auto updater) Then I was able to install all my memory with no problems

                   

                  Also try matching them up in in alternate slots which worked for me as a temp fix until I can troubleshoot the board a bit. 1 blue 1 black
