Using:
Asus m5a97 R2.0 mobo.
Rosewill 750w PSU (yes i know its above and beyond)
XFX radeon 7870 2gb
2- 4gb Ram Team Zeus
Amd FX 6300 3.5

Starting to think its my mobo. Ram light flashes, then turns off (as is normal). VGA is detected and fans turn normally. I looked on ASUS website, and this beep code is not online. 5 short beeps usually mean PSU problem. I have the 20+4 plugged in properly, 8bit plugged in (i also tried using the 2 4 bits and gave same code), 2-6 bits into the VGA. I don't understand why the PSU would be the problem?

New builder here, but i've been following multiple builds and videos.


AFTER:
Called into Asus (extremely long wait time). They had me check ram and vga POST boot, and both checked out. B/c both were good, he concluded a mobo problem. Getting new mobo...
