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.
