So here's everything I tried yesterday :

1. Attached water cooling unit. No fix. Same issue. Constant fast beep.
2. Tried a different power supply. Used the power supply from my main computer to this motherboard. All that I connected was the 24. And the ATX 12 v connection to the motherboard. I did unplug all the peripheral connections from the PSU. So the PSU only had the two connections to motherboard . Same thing. Fans turn on light up and spin. And get constant rapid beat on the speaker.
3. Reset bios/cmos. With screwdriver to pins. Nothing . Same issue.
4. Removed battery from mobo and reset cmos again . Waited 10 min. Put battery back in. Nothing.
5. I moved and configured the 2 new RAM sticks in dif. Slots and 6 variations. Nothing.
6. I took the 2 RAM sticks from my daily computer and tried them in 6 different variations. Nothing.
7. Cpu pins look perfect and straight.



All i can think of that's left is .
1) bad mobo. But not sure how I can confirm this.
2) bad dim slots?
3) bad cpu.


I'm stuck

....................................................... light bulb

Sitting here @ the computer this morning still scratching my head about this sitution.

I look online to see how much these RAM sticks are going for on ebay.
And I read this....
"Compatible with Intel LGA1155 and AMD Llano/AM3+ platforms
Intel XMP support for 2nd and 3rd Generation Intel Core Processors".


Could this be it? Is this the problem. Is this RAM no compatible with my FM2+ mobo?
Or if I recall when I read this when I bought my RAM I read it as..... it is also "Compatible with Intel LGA1155 and AMD Llano/AM3+ platforms
Intel XMP support for 2nd and 3rd Generation Intel Core Processors"

fingers crossed.....................

If you are using DDR3 memory there shouldn't be any compatibility issues. Sometimes not all motherboards are included because they might not be "officially supported" or some sh*.

And I'm afraid you can't use eBay as a source of information.

Check this out: http://download.gigabyte.us/FileList/Memory/mb_memory_ga-f2a68hm-h.pdf

Or if you have rev 1.1: http://download.gigabyte.us/FileList/Memory/mb_memory_ga-f2a68hm-h.pdf

Look up the part number and see if it's on the list.

So your board has AMI BIOS, so count the beeps and act accordingly. Why did you ignore Cortb's question? Are you interested in solving the issue?

There is no specific beep code.
It's just constant rapid fire beeping. No pause. No breaks. Like a machine gun going off with unlimited amo

Continuous long beep :Memory not correctly installed
Continuous short beep :Power supply unit failed

I'm guessing that it's the memory since it sounds 'like a machine gun'

edit: i'd try re-seating only 1 stick of memory, and then try it in all the slots, and then try a different stick of memory again in all the slots if the first one doesn't work. that way you can narrow it down to a bad stick or a bad slot.

How did you know you didn't fry your CPU already? AMD CPUs gets hot quick and I know about the thermal shutdown but probably too late to save it.

Never ever run a CPU without a cooler.
