Problem with Gskill Ram (me thinks)

Hey people! Alright this is the situation. Bought a new mobo asus v pro gen 3, bought 2 new sticks of gskill 4gb 8-8-8-4, after installing everything only 1 stick of ram would allow the pc to post (after post everything went smoothly) but if certain ram slots just didn't work, and if i tried switching out the ram it would work sporadically. I had 2 older ram sticks (exact same model as the two new ones i bought). So the problem essentially is that i can't get my pc to post with 4 sticks of ram let alone 2 now, I re-seated cpu (2600k), and that didn't fix the problem. Keep in mind i got it to post correctly with 1 stick of ram more then once. I figured it was a motherboard problem, so i filed an rma on it. I tried installing the two original ram sticks i never had a problem with on my old mobo (which worked perfectly less then a week before), and the same problem arose. This leads me to believe one of two things, either the ram is ****** (i doubt since they often work correctly by themselves) or the CPU has a bent pin or something, but after close inspection i can't see anything wrong with it at all, it looks factory new underneath. I've read a lotttt of people seem to have the same issue, but there's never a resolution.

I would appreciate any help/time anyone can donate!
