surely they have some opened ddr3 and a psu for you to try booting it up.

I don't think they have that, unfortunately. Last time I checked there didn't seem to be aything like that, and it's a small store.

I'm contemplating between getting it fixed or buying Newegg.ca - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Desktop Memory Model F3-8500CL7D-8GBRL

The guy at the phone said I probably did something to my RAM while switching mobos but I don't know.. I don't want to buy new RAM only to find that that my CPU is ruined.

Bah. I'll just bring it to the store today. The guy is nice so I'll have him explain exactly what went wrong. (Might still be a hardware issue though)
