If this is correct I would think it is the motherboard.

Does your manual show the same ram location as the picture I posted for the online manual?

Their is something else that comes to mind.
When installing the motherboard a stand off in the wrong position or a extra one can cause all kinds of goofy problems.

Double check to make sure they are correct.

Are you going to RMA the motherboard?

Get in touch with the manufacture.

Spend some time on the MSI forum. Their should be someone there that can give guidance to MSI RMA policies.
