If you put the Mushkin back in the original sockets, then you likely:
1. Damaged the mainboard PCB when inserting modules
2. Lodged a screw, or something conductive, shorting the board
3. Got dust, debris in the DDR socket shorting some pins
BTW, attempting to boot without a video device will also cause beeps.
You removed your PCIe vid card. Does this mobo also have onboard video?
If not, put the vid card back in before attempting to power it on.
If it boots with the Mushkin in the two original sockets, but not with
one stick in the "other" socket for dual channel operation, then other
that socket is likely bad, or has something tiny wedged in between pins.
