I have been having the same issue's, was told faulty batch. Got replacement board and still the same problem. Needless to say my client think I am stupid.
I have the same problem. Shouldn't I get three beeps after removing memory if cpu is fine? READ If there are no beeps after removing all memory, cpu got wrong, am I right? I Replaced my mobo, cause system had tendency to hang and finally stopped working. After changing mobo for the new one it doesn't work. I will change my cpu and post where I got to.
