Intel Core i7-3930K Sandy Bridge-E CPU
Asus P9X79 Pro LGA 2011 Mobo
Asus GTX680-DC2T-2GD5 Graphics Card
G.SKILL Ares Series Memory (Model F3-1866C10Q-32GAB)
When I power on, I get one long beep and three short beeps (video?). Not sure why, but I'm wondering if it could be one of a couple of things:
1. I'm using the G.SKILL Ares memory instead of the G.SKILL Ripjaws because of the low profile (I have a Zalman CNPS12X cooler that the Ripjaws wouldn't fit under). Newegg says this memory is compatible with LGA 2011, but the package only says compatible with LGA 1155/1156.
2. The video card is not seated in the first (recommended) PCI-e slot. Does that matter?
I can't think of any other reasons why I can't get a successful POST. Any help is greatly appreciated!
