I bought Kingston 'value ram' DDR3 1333MHz 2x4GB and that worked,
I'm RMA'ing the Crucial memory:too bad, I liked Crucial.
This board ask for low volts RAM like 1.35 volts Gskil makes these check at Newegg. The Kingston and Crucial part# you are listing are 1.5 volts.
To quote the manual,
The board ... supports the following memory features:
* 1.5 V DDR3 SDRAM ... with the option to raise the voltage ...
* Support for 1.35 V low-voltage DDR3
So, yes, the board supports low-voltage but it does not require it. And
the ordering suggests that the 1.5V part is considered 'normal'.

So what Volts do you have it set to in the BIOS right now ?? I am running 8GB of the exact crucial and had to set to 1.6 to get it stable .
With the Kingston memory, it's set to 'default' and reading 1.48V by the Intel desktop tools.
The Crucial is already on its way back so I can't try upping the voltage on that. But
frankly it never occurred to me to do so - it wasn't a matter of flakiness under load,
the board would do nothing at all with both DIMMS installed.
You have to contact the Mem. Mfg. and ask whats the Max volts that can operate at. I've been running mine at 1.6 now for about a year clocked to 1400Mhz.Base clock of DDR3-1333-10600
