the RAM should be in slots 1 and 3 for dual channel functionality. It probably isn't recognizing the RAM because it's not in the primary slot (slot 1).
can you get to BIOS?

Hello Rascle53...

Have you tried setting the BIOS defaults or resetting the CMOS?

I don't think the CPU was bad... I think it was just overheating.
