Any suggestions? I know the dram speed is above the official supported ram, but I plan to overclock it. Any suggestions on how to get the board to post?
Borrow some RAM that meets mobo specs and POST successfully. Once you've done that, reboot and change the RAM specs in the UEFI, shut down, put in your non-spec RAM, and hope. Your mobo is telling you that the info it's seeing from the RAM is beyond spec so it just quits and won't let you into the UEFI to change it to your RAM specs.
