Recently built my friend a new pc and decided to upgrade my own at the same time, had both put together, and attempted to post. Both computers showed a "no display" on the monitor but seemed to boot normal and not give any code I could realize. Being new to troubleshooting it took a while to find out it was the Ram that was causing the issue. I changed my ram from a set of corsair vengeance led 16gb 3000 Cas 15 and set of Corsair Vengeance lpx 16gb 3000 Cas 15, (ran together no problem,) to two sets of Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO 16gb 3000 CAS 15. And the new machine had the same but white sticks. I could not get the ram to give a display no matter that I'd done so I took them to a friends to try on his board, a Gigabyte AB350-GAMING 3. They worked immediately, 2 sticks, and all 4. HOWEVER at the time we didn't think to actually try to play anything because the main issue was just not getting a display. Brought them home, tried again in my machine with ALL 4 (had only tried 2 at a time before) and they worked on both machines. Did updates and all as usual, later that night I tried to play Borderlands 2 and Rust, both games crashed almost instantly. Shortly after the new machine with the same sticks crashed with no display from watching a YouTube video. Old ram was split between the two machines and the pro were taken back, no issues with them since. Assuming these sticks are not compatible with something in the system, but wasn't expecting it being all the specs should have lined up. Any ideas or same issues from anyone else? Here are the two builds and links to all the ram that's been used. Thanks all!

I just realized and should note that BOTH 'My build' and 'New build,' are using this power supply: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/79tQzy/corsair-rmx-2018-750w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-cp-9020179-na
