    I have this:
    AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 140W Quad-Core Processor


    which would appear to be C2

    Look at the part number and verify it. If it ends with a GM it is a C3 stepping.

    OK so it appears to be something else. Not a cpu bios mismatch.

    Just another suggestion. Have you tried booting with a diifferent keyboard and mouse and no usb devices?

    OK I'm just coming up with ideas here. Have you checked in BIOS PC Health Statues to see if any alarms or warnings are enabled?
    Code:
    PC Health Status
    Hardware Thermal Control [Enabled]
    Reset Case Open Status [Disabled]
    Case Opened No
    Vcore 1.364V
    DDR3 1.5V 1.536V
    +3.3V 3.280V
    +12V 12.048V
    Current System Temperature 38oC
    Current CPU Temperature 36oC
    Current CPU FAN Speed 1962 RPM
    Current SYSTEM FAN1 Speed 0 RPM
    Current SYSTEM FAN2 Speed 0 RPM
    Current NB FAN Speed 0 RPM
    Current POWER FAN Speed 0 RPM
    CPU Warning Temperature [Disabled]
    CPU FAN Fail Warning [Disabled]
    SYSTEM FAN1 Fail Warning [Disabled]
    SYSTEM FAN2 Fail Warning [Disabled]
    NB FAN Fail Warning [Disabled]
    POWER FAN Fail Warning [Disabled]
    CPU Smart FAN Control [Enabled]
    CPU Smart FAN Mode [Auto]
    System Smart FAN Control [Enabled]

    way ahead of you. When the problem first started happening I thought it might be from one of these warning settings. But even after disabling all of the warnings...still got the beep series. so enabled or disabled they have made no difference.

    latestnews: got an answer from Gigabyte but have not had time to verify if it corrects the problem.
    "Dear customer,
    it was warning beeps, could be incorrect voltage was detected in bios. Please try reset bios to load fail-safe defaults and load optimized defaults. Mother board bios memory voltage setting is base on 1.5v ( default voltage ), please check current model memory voltage spec if it's higher then 1.5v, go in bios under M/B intelligent tweaker memory voltage control item adjust memory voltage to match memory voltage needs .
    For example: current memory is 1.7v, go in bios M/B intelligent tweaker on memory voltage control item change to 1.7v, this will match the current model memory voltage spec, check if issue not comes up any more."

    will update when tested.

    They sure explained this wrong. You must check your memory and get the part number to verify the voltage recommended by the memory manufacturer. You can usually google search with your complete memory part number. Somewhere you will find the voltage recommended for that memory. I googled this for you it is 1.8v not 1.7v Memory Timing is 9-9-9-24
    Enter bios on the first page of bios press CTRL+F1 at the same time. This will give you all of your bios setup options. This must be done everytime for all of your BIOS setup options.
    Code:
    MB Intelligent Tweaker(M.I.T.)
    } Advanced Clock Calibration [Press Enter]
    CPU Clock Ratio [Auto] 2800Mhz
    CPU NorthBridge Freq. [Auto] 2000Mhz
    CPU Host Clock Control [Auto]
    x CPU Frequency(MHz) 200
    PCIE Clock(MHz) [Auto]
    HT Link Width [Auto]
    HT Link Frequency [Auto] 2000Mhz
    VGA Core Clock control [Disabled]
    x VGA Core Clock(MHz) 700
    Set Memory Clock [Manual]
    x Memory Clock x6.66 1333Mhz
    } DRAM Configuration [Press Enter]
    ******** System Voltage Optimized ********
    System Voltage Control [Manual]
    DDR3 Voltage Control [Manual]1.8v= +0.300v
    NorthBridge Volt Control [Normal]
    SouthBridge Volt Control [Normal]
    SidePort Mem Volt Control [Normal]
    CPU NB VID Control [Normal]
    CPU Voltage Control [Normal]
    Normal CPU Vcore 1.3250V
    You can verify voltage in Bios in PC Health Status.
    When you first change it you must save and reboot then enter bios again, and go to PC Health Status to verify the voltage change.

    Then Press enter to set timing items as follows, but don't pay attention to greyed numbers on the right in your bios or here. They are for reference only. Try setting the ones listed in red.:
    Code:
    DCTs Mode [Unganged]
    DDR3 Timing Items [Manual] SPD Auto
    x CAS# latency Auto 9T 7T 7T
    x RAS to CAS R/W Delay  9T 7T 7T
