Last day I came home with a gigabyte mobo and a fx 8320 cpu. I tried to set it up for 6 hours with no avail. My friend and I exhausted all possible options that we knew and the thing just would not boot. I returned that mobo and picked up a 990 fxa gd65. Today again, Everything hooked up, and it will not boot once again. I get 4 beeps on boot, what does this signify? I have tried using both my new 760 and my older 560ti and both seem to have no FEED to the monitor.

Can anybody please suggest something as we are totally scratching our heads right about now..

Thanks.

Did you bend any of the CPU pins?

No sir. This is the 2nd mobo that is not working as well in the same fashion as the last. Except the last one I returned the cpu fan connector did not work, whereas on this mobo it does. What do 4 beeps typically signify on BOOT? I can't find a straight answer to this question.

P.S. We also tried putting in my older phenom II x4 which the mobo supports, and still nothing.

Are you 100% POSITIVE you don't have anything connected wrong? Like a fan connected to the PSU and motherboard or anything like that. Are the beeps all the same length?

Yes all the beeps are the same in length, relatively quickk beeps but paced out..... 4 EVERY single time. We just tried booting it to hear the sound with no graphic card attached and still 4 beeps.

Disconnect everything. Use a single RAM stick and ONLY PSU, motherboard, CPU, RAM. Try to boot.

4 beeps, signifies bad memory or a bad memory timer.

Alright we are in the process of it... just as I'm typing this we tried removing all but one ram from the slot, and one ram in particular gave us prolonged beeps.... I believe this beep kept going. I'd assume g.skill ripjaws dd3 1600 pc3-12800 are compatible with the 970fx-g46 mobo I have correct?

Yes, perfectly compatible. You may just have bad RAM.

EDIT: sry getting errors when I try editing my posts.. And we can't do what you suggested without the graphic card because this mobo has no onboard.

Use the gtx760 as it technically uses less power.

try each stick individually. One at a time.

We have been been using the 760. But we also tried without the graphic card in place before finding out the mobo had NO onboard graphics. Idk what else to do, we have literally been at this for over 10 hours now from last night. Were going to go get a stick of ram from my buds place and try that. Maybe all my ram sticks got messed up from a surge or something. I'll keep you posted. And if there is simply anything else you can think of, please inform me, before HEAD=WALL :(

Honestly, the memory sounds bad. The 4 beeps signify bad memory or a bad memory controller (bent CPU pins usually).

You were right, we tried 1 ram stick at my friends and it booted.. all 4x of my ram sticks wear done for RIP. thnx... and this concludes a 20 hours marathon of fail. I had to buy new ram too fml.
