    Unhappy The new system can not boot, error code 68 or 6B

    Hello all:
    Nice to meet you guys here, I am new to this forum and I need your help.
    My system specification:
    CPU: i7 920
    M/B: Gigabyte EX58-UD5
    RAM: OCZ3G1600LV6GK
    GPU: PowerColor HD4870 1GB
    PSU: CoolerMaster M850W
    HDD: Seagate 7200.12 500G x 2 (Raid 0)
    HDD2:Seagate 7200.7 200G X 2 (Raid 0)
    Optical Drive: Pioneer DVD Writer

    After I put all the components onto the M/B and try to start up the system, the system just can not boot, it just can not show the POST screen.

    I have put the RAM into DDR3_1, DDR3_3, DDR3_5 slot.
    The LED shows the error code as "68" or "6B".

    I have even tried install one RAM and try to start up the system, but still no luck.

    I don't really know what is the problem now, is the problem related to RAM or M/B....

    HELP, please...

    Thank you for the reply.

    No, there is a section which describe the POST ERROR CODE in the manual.

    I don't know whether that section isn't for the LED CODE or just the error I am having is "out of them knowledge". Since the error code I am getting is not on the list.

    And I have tried many combination of RAM, like 2,4,6 etc, the system just never boot

    Here is a list of error codes for X58, different board but I believe they are the same >>
    BloodRage: AWARD & Intel X58 POST Code/Debug LED Guide - XtremeSystems Forums

    Have you tried clearing your CMOS? If not please do try using the method outlined here in post #2 >>

    Other than that are you sure you have the ATX 12V 8 Pin and 24 Pin connected fully and properly? Sorry, have to ask.

    Are you SURE they are NO Bent pins under the CPU in the CPU Socket?

    seems like we're having quite identical problems: http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/new-...e-68-6b-32228/
    except, for me, it changes to code 69 from 6b after around 1,5sec.
    i will wait for my new memory (kingston KHX12800D3LLK3/6GX) and if it still won't boot i'll probably rma it... bad thing is i can't test the cpu
