To begin with frustrations upon frustrations is not how I wanted to start my HTPC build.
Here is the situation.
I have 2x2GB DDR3 1333 ram GSkill (compatible and checked with another computer that runs the same kind and voltage) Confirmed that this memory works
Intel i3 Ivy Bridge 3.3MHz 2500
MOBO I have used the ASROCK H67M (B3) but could not get it to post.
I purchased an Intel DH67BL and i can't get this one to post either and now I'm getting three beeps which I know means a Memory error.
But I don't get it. I've done everything that you can do to rectify this problem. I've tried the same ram in another computer, verified that it works, Used that ram in my computer build (still get 3 beeps)
I've reset the CMOS both hard and jumper NOTHING HAPPENS still 3 beeps.
So if its not the Ram it has to either be the Board (again? really?) the CPU (I feel thats doubtful) or the Power Supply.
My money is on the PSU. Why? Its probably a POS that was in that HEC case i bought.
Am I missing something here? I've spent the last few hours driving from store to store to get a new MOBO, and new Ram, and still nothing is progressing... Seriously Help.
btw... I've built dozens of computers in the past, i have never had this much trouble before. So i swear i'm not a noob, however If i did overlook something obvious please feel free to slap a Noob title on me, just so long as it solves the problem
