This might be the memory itself, the BIOS on the computer or even the memory controller hub on the processor. I would recommend checking with your place of purchase to see if you could return the memory. I have checked memory specifications and meets the requirements.
Please see the list of compatible memory linked below:
It was the memory! Took it down to a little place down the street called "Geeky Clean PC" and dropped it off. An hour later they called telling me that it was the RAM causing the issue and that when they swapped it out for another stick they had on hand it booted up fine. Glad to know that I actually managed to hook everything up right on the first try! Amazon Prime is sending a new Kinston HyperX 8GB so it should be up and running by this time tomorrow. Thanks anyways!
Good to hear the board is working with different memory.
