If you removed a stick of RAM and it POSTs now, then the RAM is likely faulty. The easiest way to check is put it back in the system. Though there is an outside chance that it wasn't completely inserted. However you said you had the same issue with another motherboard, it's unlikely that you have done the same thing wrong twice.
Try the other RAM stick in the same slot and see if it boots is the easy answer. Have u got the RAM in the right slots? Also are they same model RAM? Do you have XMP enabled in the BIOS? Could be faulty RAM. Make/model could also just not be fully supported by the MB I guess. Check the manufacturers website.

Corsair Vengeance LPX 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR4, 2400MHz, CL14 (14-16-16-31) RAM module and Hypertec 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR4 2133MHz Desktop Memory i have taken out the hypertec one and it worked, will i be able to put this in at a later point?
You could probably get them working together, although they will always operate at the lower frequency, but mixing RAM is never a good idea and can cause system stability issues, especially if they are overclocked. Check each ram on its own to make sure they both work, as they should both run fine on their own if it's a compatibility issue. If the problem only occurs when there are two in together then they are not compatible. If you have problems with two now though, the chances are either one stick is dead or they'll never work. Make sure your BIOS settings are defaulted if possible, especially DRAM settings. Also (if it's a two slot board its academic) put them in the right channels, probably 2 and 4, although it can vary.
It might be beneficial for us to have your full system specs.
If you really want to know whether that stick of RAM is bad, put it back in your system alone. Leave the other 3 out and only use that stick of RAM. If it refuses to POST with that single stick of RAM, then it's faulty.
Since I don't know what your system specs are, it's hard to advise further. What I can say is some CPU's IMCs are sensitive to having all the RAM slots filled. To make matters more complicated you've got high speed RAM kits and they are mismatched. This is a no-no in most cases. Not only do you have the additional load of 4 stick of RAM on the IMC, but the sticks are matched.
