I finally get my new computer parts, everything is assembled correctly, I power it on for the first time, all the parts light up and work, but then.......................a light and beeping occur. It states that there's an issue with the memory. I press the magic button on the motherboard to fix it, nothing happens, I move the sticks around a bit, still nothing, I check the internet for help: sh!tty videos explaining nothing. I then check the motherboard's guide and looked at compatible RAM, it turns out that what I got was incompatible. So now I need to send the memory back to New Egg, get a refund and get the correct RAM.
So until then, I am stuck with a $2000 paper weight.
By the way I have an ASUS Z97-A, the RAM is G.Skill Ripjaws X which is made of 2 8gb sticks and are 1600 hz. It was advertized as being compatible with Z97 motherboards but it actually isn't.

Not sure I'll be catching all the streams, but I'll be popping in and out.
