Hello and welcome.

Please do the following.

1. Remove your CPU
2. Check and see that all the pins in your socket are in good working order and none look bent.
3. Reseat your CPU - ensure you cooler is correctly mounted and is providing the correct amount of down pressure. Screw in type cooler and not a push in type cooler mounting.
4. Place one stick of ram in the furthers slot from the motherboard (either side it makes no difference)
5. Make sure all the power connectors are correctly fitted and secure.
6. Power up.


If the board is still not booting please note down the exact LED code that is being displayed.

Thank you.

Quite right - there is a fair amount of downward pressure needed and I should have mentioned that. Thank you for reminding the OP.

That error often shows it seems when a Bios update is needed to make the 3820 CPU compatable. I would update bios first using Flashback from fat formatted USB stick.

Yip give the BIOS update a whirl and post back if you still have issues.

Hi guys,

problem perists.

have updated to the latest bios and tried the MemOk / GO function of the motherboard a few times as well, no luck.

The particular memory im using is not in the QVL list for the motherboard, do you think that may be the problem?

The IT department at the office had some kingston DDR3 memory lying around , have brought it home to check. But dont think this particular model is on the QVL either.

What else do you think could be the problem?

Thanks
