Were I in your position I would keep the RAM and sell the board. Or, feed the board through a wood-chipper, mail all the bits back to Gigabyte, and buy another board.

According to Google, the board requires single-sided RAM when all four slots are populated. Have you tried just three slots or are you trying to do some dual-channel witchcraft?
