Have you run Memtest86+ on the RAM? You can run a test on each stick in the first slot to test each stick individually, then run a test with more slots populated.

Maybe I didn't make it clear in my original post but when I said I've run 8gb before with most of my current hardware I meant that was with a different MB.

Yeah, I figured as much it's just I've exhausted most of my options.
