    If you have a digi cam with macro take a picture of the socket, you can post it here to have more eyes inspecting it.
    Might be the BIOS or motherboard itself.

    yes its normal for the mb lights to stay lit,until os boot up,then they should all go out apart from one green light for ram,cpu,nb and some blue lights for your cpu oc,the higher the oc the more blue lights light up,if and when you do get it running you can try your eec ram in there but im 99% sure it wont boot up,good luck on sourcing a 920/930,pity you didnt update to latest bios before you got rid

    Hi Chike, I did try this earlier in anticipation of your request.
    No luck the Canon A620 I have doesn't sharpen up enough to see anything clearly, even in Macro Mode.
    I tried with and without flash and a few other modes, but none of the pics do it justice its not focused enough to send through, I'm giving up for the night its way past my bed time, tomorrow is another day......

    Thanks again for your help.

    Hello Tweaksters,
    All resolved my G58A-UD3R is now working with my Xeon E5620 CPU.
    The Problem all along was that the new mobo I purchased must have been sitting on a shelf somewhere for a long time as it only had BIOS Ver FE which is a very old version.
    Now some explanation as to how this was resolved so the next poor sod that tries the same rig doesnít have to go though the same grief I did.

    Firstly I borrowed a friends Xeon X5570 2.93GHZ CPU (Shown as supported in Gigabyte site) and tried that and to my surprise I actually heard a short beep and then bingo the Gigabyte front screen popped up.
    Went into Bios only to discover to my dismay that it was only at FE as mentioned.
    Now the dramas begin updating was not a simple task.
    I hadnít loaded an OS or even had any HDD at this stage, so Q-Flash was the method I wanted to use.
    Wow what an experience, firstly it works out that not all USB Keys are supported and its not even brand specific just random.
    I eventually got a no name 4GB USB key to be identified after I found some previous threads on this forum that described the BIOS settings to discover a USB key.
    Then I had more problems were I got an error that the file size was incorrect trying to upgrade to FH3.
    Found another previous thread that mentioned that all the earlier BIOS files are only 1024MB and all the newer ones once unzipped are 2048MB.
    Well it works out that from FE were I was, I could only get to FF using Q-Flash as FF is only 1024MB.
    I extracted FF onto the noname USB key and bingo Upgraded BIOS to FF.
    Then I installed my E5620 and it all worked, I was even able to re install the original ECC Registered DIMMís that I was given along with the Xeon, before I started this adventure.
    So all good and thank you all for your help and the invaluable information on this forum and others online.
    Now I have to update BIOS from within O/S once its loaded to get it to the latest due to the older BIOS 1024MB or greater file limitation.
    Now comes the fun, do I go SSD HDD for OS and RAID for Data, do I use the Intel ICH10R controller or the Marvel that doesnít get a good rap. Or do I buy an independent RAID adapter so Iím not locked into the mobo if I have data issues.
    Well sorry if I have bored any of you, but just wanted to share my experience, I will update again soon once my rig is complete.
    If anyone has any opinions on HDD options please share them.
    Cheers Alex

    well im suprised your eec ram worked,maybe they fixed it in bios? as it didnt used to

    for the large bios files you have to use the latest @bios,once flashed updated you can go back to using q-flash,its just a one off flash with @bios

    and for mechanical hdd's samsung f3 or f4 1tb/2tb drives are the best imo,but are hugely expensive right now due to flooding,as for ssd its up to you corsair gt 120gb or ocz vertex 3?

    Thanks Wazza, would you still use the embedded SATA controllers or go something like a Adaptec RAID PCI Card?
    I havn't heard anything good about the onboard Marvel 6BG Chipset.

    i dont know,i would try it first on the marvell port and see what results you get,its fine for single drives but might not be able to handle raid,for raid you can use intel sata2 and use ssd on the marvell? if your not happy then you can try an add in card,use atto disk benchmark to bench ssd with

    Interesting, is there any indication the RAM is ecc and/or registered?
    It may be a feature of the CPU not the motherboard.

    Hi Chike, the Memory in question is Samsung M392B5673FH0-CH9 and I believe your right it is a feature of the CPU rather than the Board, It is definitely ECC Registered if you do a Google on the P/N.
    If you then look at the Intel specifications of a E5620 under Memory ECC is supported.

    I ran a Xeon E5620 in a Gigabyte X58A-UD3R rev2.0 with non ecc memory ( I use Corsair XMS3 1600 CL8 6gb kit ) and now use the same cpu in X58A-UD7 rev2.0 - it works beautifully as long as you have the latest bios . I use either the latest beta bios from this site or latest beta's from JZeletronic.de ( because they have latest firmwares for Marvell ROM , Intel RAID ROM and Realtek LAN ROM ) .

    I struggled getting it going in the beginning and had to burrow i7 920 to update the bios , once i'd done that all was well . As far as overclocking goes , I had better luck with the UD3R than the UD7 and managed to boot into windows with 234mhz bus . I run my rig at 222 x 19 24/7 with Zalman CNPS 10X flex or good ol' TRU120 . PM me if you need any help getting it going .
    Xeon E5620 @ 225x18 1.325v | Corsair XMS3 1800 8-8-8-248 @ 1.66v / QPI 1.52v | Gigabyte X58A-UD3R ver 2.0 | GTX295
