So did you try this with both sticks (one at a time?) If so, then yes you likely have a dud. The reason I ask is that I have had instances where XMP/DOCP would run fine with either of two, but not both sticks at the same time. A BIOS reset with both sticks installed forces the board to re-learn the sub timings on the next boot. This may solve the issue.With 1 stick of ram I was able to run it at rated speed and play 6 games without issue. So many odd things going on, but looks like it is 1 bad stick of ram.
Not sure if that board has more than two RAM slots, but some are picky about which two you populate if it has more than two.
