    5 beeps can mean no video card.
    Connect your keyboard and install your video card and see if you can boot into the bios.

    I always build and test a new system with the motherboard on a cardboard box and beside the computer case.
    Always unplug your power supply cable from the wall outlet or back of the power supply before adding or removing hardware.
    Never place the anti-static bag under the motherboard.

    Welcome to the forum.
    Glad to hear that everything is now okie-dokie.
    Quit your complaining, at least you didn't have to rebuild your system 5 or 6 times.

    haha fair enought, well another problem im running into is my mobo is not recognizing all of my RAM only two slots or 8g of it i took em out and im pretty sure there installed correctly they are dual channel RAM kits so i have one set installed on A1 and A2 and another set installed on B1 and B2 is this correct??? and i have 64 bit windows 7 so thats not the issue =[

    The following is from the Z77 Extreme4 motherboard user manual, page 20:

    This motherboard provides four 240-pin DDR3 (Double Data Rate 3) DIMM
    slots, and supports Dual Channel Memory Technology. For dual channel confi guration,
    you always need to install identical (the same brand, speed, size and
    chip-type) DDR3 DIMM pair in the slots: You have to install identical DDR3
    DIMMs in Dual Channel A (DDR3_A1 and DDR3_B1; Black slots; see p.13
    No. 6) or identical DDR3 DIMMs in Dual Channel B (DDR3_A2 and DDR3_
    B2; Black slots; see p.13 No. 7), so that Dual Channel Memory Technology can
    be activated. This motherboard also allows you to install four DDR3 DIMMs
    for dual channel confi guration, please install identical DDR3 DIMMs in all four
    slots. You may refer to the Dual Channel Memory Confi guration Table below.

    Are you trying to run 4 x 4GB of memory at 2400MHz?
    I've PM'd parsec and synack to give their recommendations.

    When all else fails, RTFM

    You might be successful if you initially try 2133MHz or slightly lower.
    parsec or synack can probably help you with specific memory tweaks to run at 2400MHz.
    You might need to wait for a future bios version to support your memory at its rated speed.

    Ok, first of all there is no compatible memory list for the ASRock Z77 EX 3! That must mean you can use any memory you want to! No, we wish that was true. I'll use the list for the X77 EX 4, which seems to be very similar.

    Much to some forum members (and moderators) dismay, I always preach about using memory from the compatibility list. That has ALWAYS worked for me, when other recommendations, or randomly choosing memory, has not. Strangely, there are very few listings for Patriot memory, and none in the 2400 speed set. That is the basis for your issue, it's likely not compatible.

    Questions:

    Do you have the XMP profile enabled now? That would set the memory to 2400. For a test, I would NOT use the XMP profile, and set the memory timing and speed settings to Auto. That will make things easier for the memory and board.

    What is the rated voltage of that memory? Going above 1.5V might help, but SB CPUs have the memory controller in the CPU, so high voltages risk hurting the CPU, not just the memory, which would survive anyway. You could try 1.6V, particularly with 4 DIMMs.

    Given that you have two unmatched sets of memory, you would think that putting one set in one channel, and the other set in the other channel would make more sense, and I agree. But it would be interesting to see (if possible) what DIMMs are not being seen. That is, you don't know if you are seeing 4GB in two channels, or 8GB in one channel.

    Download and run CPU-Z, and check the SPD tab. You'll see in the upper left of that tab a selection box for the Slot #. I'm hoping that you'll be able to find out which slots are not being recognized. I would also try mixing the DIMMs, one from each set in each channel, and see what happens.

    If you can get all four DIMMs recognized at their stock speed (which is not 2400, the default speed is always lower, probably 1333 or 1600), then increase the speed one notch in the list of speeds in the UEFI/BIOS. Go from say 1600 to 1866, and see how it goes.

    You may be stuck with that memory not being compatible, a pain I know, but there is no magic fix if it is just not right for the board and CPU. Frankly, it is the board and CPU that determines that, not the memory manufacture, IMO.

    +1^^
    Even if you have 4 "identical" modules from 2 kits, mark each pair from one kit with a similar code, such as 11 & 12 from the first kit and 21 & 22 from the second kit so that you can mix & match individual modules but still keep track of each kit. You can use names or any markings that you like, but I don't recommend using A1, A2, B1 and B2 because of confusion with the motherboard's memory slot names.
