    Clear the CMOS and remove the backup battery for 30 minutes.
    Try using defaults instead of OC (overclocking)
    Try one stick at a time with the RAM.
    Could be issue with the RAM or CPU (could have got damaged)

    Remove the HDD or unplug the power connections. You have to try and test everything you have installed. If you come up empty then check the PSU with another one? Also check the monitor with another system see it that's working too? Check the cables and video card. Use VGA instead of DVI or HDMI to see what's working or not. You might have too start with all new components that works with new MOBO (optional)

    Seems like a RAM issue. As tipstir said above, try booting with only the CPU and RAM plugged in. If it boots, start adding components one at a time to figure out what the issue is...
