Further info on ESD damage potential, you likely don't feel or see most of the electro-static mumbo jumbo going on, but almost every time you touch a computer part that's not grounded (and your also not grounded) there is a slight exchange of electro-static energy. Even very small amounts can damage parts in a computer, and you likely won't even notice the effects right away.

In most cases, you probably won't notice the damage for over a year before things start to get wonky with seemingly causeless memory faults, reduced system stability and random program/driver crashes. Most of us here have probably caused some ESD damage doing a build sometime or another at least once.

That being said, you are probably just super unlucky and/or some combination of the parts you are purchasing just won't work together. I'd suggest maybe trying a lower voltage/speed RAM next time you replace that if you do - perhaps even aim for a more verified ram (such as AMD's stuff) rather than generix 'gamer' ram. Some motherboards will actually list specific RAM modules to look for that are verified to work on that board.

It's alive!!! Ha ha ha!!

I ordered another of the same motherboard and everything is working peachy so far. Bad board? Maybe. Fried it with my super powers? Maybe. I don't care anymore because it's alive now!
