    Hi everyone.

    Been few months since I've been on the forum.
    Last weekend I started to put together another PC.
    Nothing special. Not a gaming PC. Mostly a PC for offline storage, pics, videos etc....

    Specs.

    AMD A6 7400
    Gigabyte F2A68HM-H ( mobo )
    Samsung pro 500gb SSD.
    G.Skill Ares RAM 8gb ( 2 x 4gb RAM sticks )
    Seasonix 520W PSU
    LG Blu Ray M disc optical drive.
    Thermaltake 6 fan controller.
    USB 3.0 card reader ( to connect my front USB 3.0 ports.
    Lepa water cooling unit.
    ** No GPU

    **** I do not have a cooler on top of the CPU right now. I do not because I didn't want to go thru the P.IT.A of having to disconnect at take out in the event this would happen.
    **** When I tested my computer it has never been powered on more then 15 secs.

    I made the mistake of putting it all together inside the case ( except the water cooler ). Turned it on and nothing.
    1) All fan in case did light up and spin.
    2) The additional fan controller I added to the front panel lights up and is functional
    3) Red LED light on the USB 3.0 card reader ( attached to mobo via PCI-E slot ) lights up.
    4) And on the front panel of the case is an blue LED light that lights up when the power button on top of case is depressed.

    But monitor will not get a signal to turn on. Using VGA from the mobo
    ** The monitor does works because I tested it on other computers.

    -------------------------
    Last night I disconnected everything and took out of case to do a build outside of case and re test.

    Mobo. 24 pin pSU cable connected to mobo. 4 pin connection to mobo ATX-V12 header. RAM inserted. CPU in. I also added an external speaker to the mobo to listen for beeps.
    **** I do not have a cooler on top of the CPU right now. I do not because I didn't want to go thru the P.IT.A of having to disconnect at take out in the event this would happen.
    **** When I tested my computer it has never been powered on more then 15 secs.

    Same as above. fans turned on and spun. But my speaker beeped constantly and rapidly with no pauses. Nothing to monitor.

    I did some google searching for beeps. From what I got out of it is a RAM issue. But I got confused because differant mobos had different codes for different beeps.

    I tried 1 RAM stick.
    I tried swapping the 2 RAMs in each other slots.
    I tried 2 RAM sticks from a different computer ( that I know works ).
    I tried 1 RAM stick of the above.
    I tried the 2 new RAM sticks in each others slots.

    All same thing. Constant rapid beep.

    Well I hooked up water cooler.

    Turned on.



    Constant non stop fast beep.....?

    I'm running out of ideas.



    I will clear the cmos sometime tonight and try again.

    (****** trying to keep an eye on our infant and toddler.......... )



    The mobo. is getting power right?



    The LED light in the water pump turns on.

    The 3 pin fan from water pump is connected to the 4 pin CPU FAN header



    And the 2 3 pin fans on the rad. are connected to the sys fan 1 ( 4 pin ) and sys fan 2 ( 4 pin ) on the mobo.

    The fans light up and spin.



    I did pull out the CPU. All pins look straight.

    Replaced with 0 insertion.

    So here’s everything I tried yesterday :

    1. Attached water cooling unit. No fix. Same issue. Constant fast beep.
    2. Tried a different power supply. Used the power supply from my main computer to this motherboard. All that I connected was the 24. And the ATX 12 v connection to the motherboard. I did unplug all the peripheral connections from the PSU. So the PSU only had the two connections to motherboard . Same thing. Fans turn on light up and spin. And get constant rapid beat on the speaker.
    3. Reset bios/cmos. With screwdriver to pins. Nothing . Same issue.
    4. Removed battery from mobo and reset cmos again . Waited 10 min. Put battery back in. Nothing.
    5. I moved and configured the 2 new RAM sticks in dif. Slots and 6 variations. Nothing.
    6. I took the 2 RAM sticks from my daily computer and tried them in 6 different variations. Nothing.
    7. Cpu pins look perfect and straight.



    All i can think of that’s left is .
    1) bad mobo. But not sure how I can confirm this.
    2) bad dim slots?
    3) bad cpu.


    I’m stuck

    I would say either way it's a bad motherboard.

    ....................................................... light bulb

    Sitting here @ the computer this morning still scratching my head about this sitution.

    I look online to see how much these RAM sticks are going for on ebay.
    And I read this....
    "Compatible with Intel LGA1155 and AMD Llano/AM3+ platforms
    Intel XMP support for 2nd and 3rd Generation Intel Core Processors".


    Could this be it? Is this the problem. Is this RAM no compatible with my FM2+ mobo?
    Or if I recall when I read this when I bought my RAM I read it as..... it is also "Compatible with Intel LGA1155 and AMD Llano/AM3+ platforms
    Intel XMP support for 2nd and 3rd Generation Intel Core Processors"

    fingers crossed.....................

    It will still work. As long as its ddr3 and the speed is compatible then it should work.
