Do you have both 2x4 12V CPU power connectors connected? Did you check the 8 POST diagnostic LEDs on the back of the system? I also noticed that you have 3 DIMMs, how did you populate them? (in which slots?)
Hi Edward and Thanks for your time and reply,
Yes both 8-pin CPU power connected,
at the back the "F. Diagnostic LED #2" is "ON" and the "Status LED" is also "ON"
Sorry for confusion the DIMM's are 2x4GB/package so 6 DIMM.
A2, A1, B2, B1, C2 and C1
Thanks again for your help.
Correction: CPU is W5580
Processor: 2 x Xeon W5580
DIMM: 24GB (3 x KVR1333D3D4R9S/8GI (6x4GB)
Video: Nvidia Quadro FX 5800
HD: 2 x 300GB (WD3000HLFS)
If you remove all the memory and try to power on, does it give you the three-beep code?
Nope. I strip down everything disconnecting eveything except PSU, CPU and Board, no beep..
Only thing I can think of is bad power supply, board, or processor; in order from most to least likely.
Humm, We purchased everything from a retailer except for the CPU's.
We got them from eBay! it says on it Intel Confidential AT80602000759AA. Did I buy a pair of lemons?
What is the chance that both CPU's are dead because I check them one by one and no beep, wondering also what are the chances for a brand new Board and PSU to be defect.
If they say "Intel Confidential", I'm pretty sure those are pre-release Engineering Samples only. Does the spec start with an S or a Q?
Thanks Dan_O it says "QGXP ES A4" on both, image attached. Thanks.
is it legal to sale this Intel Confidential CPU? anyone knows. Intel??
the seller not responding and I have paid a significant amount of money $2,250 USD for what suppose to be BX80602W5580 base on what was advertized,
Is it because these CPU's are not compatible to S5520SC board.

Whether it's legal to sell or not, I couldn't comment myself. But those are definitely not production-ready processors.
