Also I tried to turn on my comp this morning with same results but after I took out one ram stick and went bios. Ram settings in bios were set to 1333mhz 1.5v and timings were 9-9-9-24. So I changed them to what they should be. (1600mhz 1,65v with 9-9-9-27) So now my computer can load into normal mode but only with 1 stick installed.
I'm really starting to think this problem has something to do with my cpu memory controller not letting me run more than 1 stick at time.
You should get RAM that will run at 1.50v, as recommended by Intel.
You also need to keep the RAM voltage and the CPU IMC (Integrated Menory Controller) voltage within 0.50v.
Runs fine with 1 RAM card installed and crashes when two are installed, correct?
All memtest86+ passes with no errors or stopping by itself, correct?
It is possible the RAM may be incompatible, if it's on your QVL it should be ok.
Let's do a few setting adjustments but, first we need some info.
Can you download CPUZ
and post a snip of the CPU, Mainboard, Memory, and SPD tabs.

Have you been checking your temperatures? Use Real Temp
, to check the CPU temps when at idle, under load and/or testing.
Let us know the minimum and maximum temps you get.
Go to your BIOS and tell us what the CPU, RAM and the CPU integrated memory controller voltages are, IMC is VCCIO Voltage pg 216 in your manual.
This is important in order to make RAM settings adjustments.
