Is it white? And I've never had a clear side panel on a case before, I may purchase me some lighted fans to install later on.

Maybe a screw or something got dropped between the MB and case?
You could try breadboarding to test for shorts, and test each component does not get an error when added.
Basically this where you build the PC outside of the case.
You do need a speaker to verify the beep codes for this.
It's most common to use the MB cardboard box for the breadboard.
This article has a pretty good explanation of breadboarding.

Good Idea it probably isn't grounded to the case properly

That's actually something else I tried that I didn't mention. I removed all my hardware from the case and set it up around my desk. I put my motherboard on my motherboard box. I still got the same results. I think the motherboard is fried.

I had that happen once and it was a jumper on the bios reset pins on wrong posts.

It's also possible RAM is not compatible with a Motherboard.
Can you test with different RAM?
Can you test this RAM in a different PC?
