    DQ57TM Beep Codes, no boot

    jetcosys

      I built two new DQ57TM machines and both will not boot.  Both have memory (8GB Total) from the validated list (Kingston KVR1333D3N9/2G) and a recommended processor, Intel i7-860 (S-spec SLBJJ).  When the system is powered on, the fans spin, and I get two long beep codes, then a pause, then two long beep codes again.  Two beep codes indicates partity and four is a timing issue.  I've swapped all the memory, and since I tested 8 different sticks, individually, I seriously doubt RAM is the issue.  Since both systems exhibit the same behavior with different mobos and CPUs, I'm sure I'm missing something simple.  Can anyone help?
