This is from your manual
Just tried putting them in the same colored slots, both sticks in black and both sticks in grey. With either of those the computer would turn on for a second, then promptly shut down. Put them back where I originally had it (First grey slot and first black slot) and the computer is working again. Are you sure that's the right manual? I remember when I was putting it together I saw that the modules should be different colors, which I thought was abnormal, but it worked. Thank you for your help either way.
1-4-1 Dual Channel Memory Configuration
This motherboard provides four DDR3 memory sockets and supports Dual Channel Technology. After the
memory is installed, the BIOS will automatically detect the specifications and capacity of the memory. Enabling Dual Channel memory mode will double the original memory bandwidth.
The four DDR3 memory sockets are divided into two channels and each channel has two memory sockets as following:
Channel A: DDR3_2, DDR3_4
Channel B: DDR3_1, DDR3_3
Due to CPU limitations, read the following guidelines before installing the memory in Dual Channel mode.
- Dual Channel mode cannot be enabled if only one DDR3 memory module is installed.When enabling Dual Channel mode with two or four memory modules, it is recommended that memory of the same capacity, brand, speed, and chips be used and installed in the same colored DDR3 sockets. For optimum performance, when enabling Dual Channel mode with two memory modules, we recommend that you install them in the DDR3_1 and DDR3_2 sockets.
Your memory modules are Corsair CML8GX3M2A1600C9 and are even included in the memory support list(QVL)
So it is strange that they don't work in the recommended slots.
Could this be related too that most of your dumpfiles are referring to memory corruption etc.
