This motherboard?

(Do verify that I found the applicable User Manual.)

Physically numbered Page 10 lists supported RAM specs. On the page, also note "Go to GIGABYTE's website for the latest supported memory speeds and memory modules."

Be sure that those 4 GB RAM modules are supported by the motherboard. Were the modules purchased as a matched set/kit?

Pages 16 & 17 cover the supported RAM configurations and the physical installation process itself. Double check your RAM installation and then also check all connectors, cards, jumpers, and case connections to ensure that all are fully and firmly in place. Especially power connections.

Work through the Troubleshooting Process that begins on Page 77.

How old is that Tsunami PSU? Condition (original to build, new, refurbished, used)? History of heavy gaming use?

you can also try raising the memory voltage.
If it will boot with 2 sticks in the correct spot. Go into BIOS set the correct memory speed and timings, then up the memory voltage by 0.05 save and exit, power down then install the other 2 sticks.

Try the voltage changes as suggested by @Zerk2012.

However, that 8 year old PSU is very suspect. May be at or nearing its' designed in EOL (End of Life). At some threshold were some seemingly minor increase in power demands causes some failure. PSU simply unable to keep up.

Do you have access to another known working PSU for testing purposes?
