When I try and boot, the Power LED goes on and the green LED at the bottom of the board goes on and stays on. Then the CPU red LED flashes and then the MemOK LED stays on.
Ive tried the MemOK procedure by holding in the button and letting it scan for appropriate memory settings. each time it reboots the CPU LED flashes and then goes back to the MemOK LED flashing faster. After all this it goes back to staying on.
This is supposed to mean that I have installed my memory incorrectly according to the manual.
What I've tried:
-Using each of the Patriot DIMMs individually in the first slot and using both in the 1st and 3rd slots together.
Otherwise I don't know what to try. There is a memory Voltage jumper on the board, should I do something with this.
If you're using the Stock HSF then unscrew ALL of the MOBO & PCIe screws, dangle the MOBO supported by a towel and away from anything conductive - try to boot.
If you're not using a Stock HSF then make sure there's NO METAL to MOBO direct contact regardless of the HSF manual; I always use a thin plastic washer to eliminate shorts:
Screw -> | Metal Backplate | Plastic Washer | [MOBO] | Plastic Washer | etc...
