    5 beeps with Xeon E3-1230L V3 installed

      I've bought a Xeon E3-1230LV3 1.8 GHz CPU, and a Asus H97M Plus motherboard, upgraded to newest firmware. When I power it up it makes five short beeps. I tested the motherboard with a different Core i7 and a Celeron, and both work fine, so I assumed I had fried the CPU. I therefore bought another Xeon E3-1230LV3, but it has the same issue (five short beeps).

       

      Here's a video of the problem: https://youtu.be/PEozEZWf4UU

       

      From Asus's website it looks like the CPU should be compatible, but I can't find anything on Intel's website. Does anyone know if the CPU is vendor locked, and in that case, to which motherboards?
