Edit: Ok after i tried going through the steps again i noticed that this time the phase change lights were all lit up. That means that there is something wrong with the processor according to the manual. Given that and the previous signs of ram failure im going to rma my cpu and ram.
i tried finding what this meant but all i found were people that were installing windows got this problem. but i already have had it installed.
i restarted again and there was no video signal, not even post. It does power up though. There is an led on the mother board that comes on. and all the fans come on.
i reset bios. i tried leaving in only 1 stick of ram, cpu, and mobo. Still no video signal.
I know the video card is probably not the problem because it works in my old setup just fine.
the next day i restarted and got a beep code but still no video. i looked up the code and it said that there was probably something wrong with the first 64k of memory. so i took out the first stick of ram and put the second in the first slot. It worked so i turned it off and put the other stick in. It still worked but crashed about ten minutes later with same BSOD and one long continuous never-ending beep.
After another try it got to bios but froze.
I can RMA any of my parts, i just want to know what parts are causing the problems.
sorry if i wasnt explaining this well. It worked after i took out one stick for a few minutes then crashed. I tried using only the other stick as well, still no luck. So im not entirely sure what the problem is.
Edit: I also never changed the default ram settings and i do not have another stick of ddr3 ram to test with.
