No beeps without ram and/or GPU? If so motherboard, if not try the breadboarding linked to in the guide you went through.
Did you hook up external power from PSU to the GPU?[/quotemsg
I'm an idiot....
The motherboard arrived with the 8 pin CPU power plug having 2 pins covered with a plastic cap. I (assumed) that the plug for that was the 6 pin 2 pin plug part from the power source...it was not.
I corrected it with the 4 pin-4pin plug and voila....happy me.
