Hi All, Just built a new system and on power up I'm getting 3 beeps. The manual tells me the following
BIOS Beep Codes
Whenever a recoverable error occurs during POST, the BIOS causes the board’s
speaker to beep an error message describing the problem.
Memory error Three long beeps 1280 Hz

The memory is new and "tested" OCZ3G13334GK PC-10666 (DDR3-1333). No were in the information can I find that the memory has SPD or Serial Presence Detect that is in the Intel board manual. Is it the memory? In another section of the manual they also say that is could be the video card which is a new ATI FireGL V5600.

Any thoughts were I go from here?
