    Hi The_Omni unfortunately that still looks like a no go :( I kept letting it recycle but I'm still getting the beeping....

    After my post I was still having lots of issues, couldn't get it stable for quite awhile. Either it would throw some errors or it might not boot after a reset.

    I ended up having to go way out there till I got it posting regularly and it is now posting clean (knock on wood).

    A few things I found on mine (using OCZ Fatality 8500 6-7-20 Ram-RAM I had for another project...I will go back to the GSkill after testing and try it again):

    I had to up the voltage on the MCH Core to 1.30 (I know really high), and the Dram Voltage up to 2.20. Last, under Advanced Clock Control I added 50ps to the MCH Clock Skew.

    That got me posting everytime.

    Now I have tweaked it back a little. By adjusting the MCH Reference down to .720 and the MCH Dram Reference down to .850 I have been able to reduce my MCH Core to 1.24

    By adjusting the Dram Termination down to .850 I was able to reduce my Dram Voltage down to 2.12. Mind you this is running the memory at better speeds than it was designed, it is at 5-5-15 Command Rate 2 right now so chances are the Dram Voltage could be lowered even more if I loosened the timings.

    Ok obviously your setup will be different, but what I am trying to get across is open up those three settings and see if you can get it posting so you can tweak it back.

    And FYI I noticed that after I got closer to the right settings, when it was wrong, the amount of times it beep recycled was reduced the closer I came to the right settings. So if I only had one setting out of bounds it only beep recycled once before posting (two settings two beep recycles etc). So it appears that the times it beep recycles maybe related to the amount of changes the bios is attempting to correct before it finds a good post able combination.

    Ok back to testing.

    You can never trust what you see for any value in the BIOS on the left for memory, that can be what is used in the BIOS then, used in the past, or not even used at all.

    Set tRD manually, many multiple beeps often means tRD is set to low. So try setting 9-10 and see if it boot, if it does then you know that was part of the issue.

    Sorry I can't advise more now, I missed out on this post till now so I am not sure where you are at settings wise.

    Hi Lsdmeasap, thanks for joining in on the discussion. So I've tried your suggestion and tRD to 9-10... didn't work. Here are my settings as of right now.

    Code:
    Motherboard: EP45-UD3P  Rev#:1  Bios Version:F10b
    Cpu: Intel e8200
    Ram: G.Skill, F2-8500CL5D-4GBPK , http://www.gskill.com/images/images_products/F2-8500CL5D-4GBPK-Installation%20Guide.pdf
    Power Supply Unit: Corsair VX450W, 450W
    
    Default settings for new setups that are not overclocked.
    
    note: replace all ?? with the value displayed in your bios.
    ----> Replace "Auto" with manually set values.
