I don't have an AM2+ proc, it's an AM2 proc, and it doesn't fit in the slot.
The RAM is also DDR3 - I don't have any other DDR3 ram. DDR2 yes, DDR3 no.
I posted my situation on the UbuntuForums, which has a lot of hardware custom building fanatics. So far the general concensus is blaming the board, pending a memtest. If memtest reveals no errors, they would blame the motherboard. But I can't memtest RAM when I can't even boot up, ya know? Not a single one of the sticks works *shrug*.
