Hey guys,
I finally got all of the parts for my 3930k build and my motherboard stalls on an debug led b5 message. I have no idea what it is. In the manual is says pci bus hot plug. I have tried searching and calling asus tech, but they are dumb. ANY HELP would be appreciated....hope i don't have to RMA i live out in the middle of nowhere :(
Thanks!

Specs:
Intel i7 3930k
16gb 1600mhz ddr3 quad channel gskill ram
120gb ssd
1tb 7200 6gb/s wd
msi twin forzr ii 560ti 2gb
corsair h80
dual blu ray burner

THANKS AGAIN!!! (:

  2. Thanks for the response!
    I checked my video card, it is seated well. I took everything out of the case and tried to troubleshoot, but no luck :( still same b5 error. Tried a different known working video card and but to no avail. This is a fresh build, so no OS has been installed.

    I had this problem with a P9X79 Deluxe. After removing and reinserting 14 different RAM sticks, I finally gave up and sent it back. When I got my replacement, the same thing happened.

    I was just about to RMA this one and, out of frustration, I pushed REALLY hard on the RAM. I heard a click. It turns out that the side of the slot without a latch will actually click when the memory is properly seated. Even though it looks like it's properly seated, if you didn't hear that click, it's not. I installed all 8 sticks, making sure to properly press in the non-latch side, and it booted right away.
