Today I got more ram for my PC and I have problems with installing it. I bought 2x8gb Crucial Ballistix Sport 1600mhz cl9, and my MOBO is Asus Sabertooth 990fx r2.0 with FX-8350.
Problem is that my mobo can't detect the other stick, so instead of having 16gb, I only get 8. After I tried to check if it was faulty stick by switching dimm slots, I can't even get any further than the f******* dram light. I'm really frustrated and angry atm, and I'm sorry for possible typoes etc

Hi, You might have a faulty RAM stick. Try clearing the CMOS (unplug the power cord and remove the CMOS battery for a minute, or use the CLR CMOS jumper), install the working RAM and see if POST-ing.
Check the suspected 'faulty' stick by itself in both slots 1 and 3 from CPU, if fine in both - prob not the stick, if OK in one and not the other, try the 'goog' stick in the slot where the 'faulty' one showed as bad - might be a slot or MC issue
