I'm trying to set up a Server system for a local charity. We recently bought a:
To go with it, we bought an Intel Xeon X3470 SLBJH - 2.93ghz 8M Cache CPU.
We then bought the following RAM:
The system will not boot-up with this RAM in place. I get the 3 beeps errors, which according to the manual is a RAM issue. The seller
of the RAM sent us a different model of RAM (again, Samsung but a different model number, I never noted which) but the outcome was
exactly the same. 3 beeps per RAM module, regardless of which slot the RAM is placed in.
I suspect this may be a motherboard issue but the seller of the motherboard has been quite unresponsive so far. This is the first time I've tried
to set up a system with ECC RAM, though I've years of experience setting up desktop PCs.
Any help greatly appreciated.
Based on the fact this board is already discontinued, we do not longer offer interactive support for it. As a general recommendation, if after testing with validated memory the board still gives three beep codes we suggest checking your warranty options and replace the board.
