All of the components to your build should have came with some kind of warranty. Even if it was only 30days you should still be in good shape. Thats the worst part about building your own. You cant just call Dell and tell them you have problems and they do all of the diagnosis. That side of the work is done by the builder and can be a royal pain in the a.

Another thing I just thought of, Did you make double sure about inserting the ram into the proper docks? What I mean is that usually there are 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 docks. My mobo had a strange order to it. It was like 2 4 6 8 where the ones synced together. I wouldnt have ever known if i didnt accidentally check it. 1 3 5 and 7 would have been more logical to me. Maybe double check the mobo book.

Also test ALL of the parts on someone elses computer before you buy another mobo. Bad memory sticks are extremely common and I would still consider that to be the prime suspect. It took me awhile to get my memory going just right and i was getting weird bsod all over the place. With all of these new machines running gigs upon gigs of memory, each stick isnt working as an individual. They test all 4 sticks in the factory to find compatible pieces. That order gets screwed just a little bit and the whole thing is messed

It would only matter if you had 8 ram slots on the board. Just browsing briefly I found this about that specific memory:

"I had to bump the voltage up to 1.5 to get this kit to work without errors using the advertised timings on an MSI P55A-GD65 mb and I7-870 processor. Not a big deal, but the 1.35 volts the kit should work at."

Try 1.5v in the bios.
