So I'm brand new to building my own PC and had all the parts together last night. Sweating bullets installing the i7-3820 hoping not to mess it up, installed the Hyper 212 EVO. Went to run a test boot and had no post beep. Dr Debug came up with 0x60 as the error which is DXE Core is Started.
After trying to figure out what I had done wrong I came across a couple of tests.
1.) Tried only single sticks of RAM still no post beeps
2.) Booted up without memory and without a GPU and I got a beep, but since there was no memory the board wouldn't boot up.
Hopefully it's as simple as the memory I bought wasn't compatible with the board. However ASRocks website said that it is compatible. The memory I was using is:
G.SKILL Sniper Low Voltage Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR2
Did a bit more research and bought the:
G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 8GB (4 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9Q-8GBZL
I hope this is the only problem and once the new memory comes in it will work, still excited about being a new builder and just hoping its not a mobo or CPU issue.
Does anyone have any experience with this or any suggestions for this newbie? I would appreciate it. Just find it odd that memory that is qualified by ASRock wouldn't work. I've reseated the CPU re-installed the heatsink and fan. And haven't gotten an email back from ASRock tech service.
