Supermicro X9SCM-F RAM problem

I just received all of my parts to start my build and when testing everything before initial install, I receive 5 short beeps and 1 long beep. I have 4 sticks of 4gb of DDR3 DIMM Unbuffered installed. Since I'm receiving a memory beep code, I started only using 1 stick in DIMM1A slot only. Swapping them out to see if there was a bad stick of RAM. They all started up, waiting for the BOIs installation showed up on the screen. Then I moved to using DIMM1A, and DIMM2A slots and all work there as well. It seems like I only get the beep code when I add more RAM sticks in the motherboard. Is this a RAM problem or a motherboard problem? I'm new to building computers and this is my first build. I bought the motherboard and RAM off of eBay and I'm not sure if its something that I am doing wrong of if there is something wrong with the components.
