    Update for all people who may be in a similar boat down the road - i posted over on G.Skill's website, and they confirmed I am stupid and the 1600MHz RAM i bought wont run on the EP45T-UD3P as the max is 1333 for RAM. So, they suggested i get the 1333 series modules...that's on the way from newegg. Post over there is here:

    More to come as I give it a run in the tower...crossing my fingers!

    Have you had any luck finding any Teamgroup memory kits that might be compatible with your motherboard?

    @profJim -

    I emailed their tech support but got no response. I may still try one of their 1333 kits if the 1333 kit from G.Skill doesnt work out.

    Sigh. no luck. same behavior. wont get to BIOS. tried one module and dual, in 2/4 slots for dual and the 1, 2, and 3 slot for single module.

    No beeps, just constant re-cycling of power. No system led on the front of the tower, CPU Fan never spins, no monitor response....just HDD spooling, MoBo LEDs and case fans turn on.

    is there anything else I can try...since G.Skill claimed this RAM was compatible?

    Before you installed the new ram, did you first make any bios changes for the new memory?
    If yes, what settings did you change?

    DDR3 memory in many LGA775 motherboards was often iffy.

    In many cases, before the ddr3 memory was installed, the memory speed needed to be underclocked at first, sometimes as low as 1066MHz.

    Once the system was stable, the memory could then gradually overclocked in steps.

    Are you still trying to get the G.Skill F3-10666CL9D-8GBRL working?
    What is the maximum memory voltage printed on the sticker on each memory module?

    With ddr2 memory installed:
    1. save your current bios settings as a saved bios profile in your bios and give it a meaningful name, such as DEFAULT_333
    2. load optimized bios defaults
    3. in the M.I.T. section, set System Memory Multiplier = 3.20B <--- this will try to boot at 1066MHz speeds
    4. set DRAM Voltage = the max rated voltage for your memory
    5. save your settings and exit the bios using the F10 key and let your system start to reboot
    6. power off your system as soon as it starts to post
    7. unplug your A.C. power cord from the back of the power supply
    8. remove your ddr2 memory and install one of the new modules in dimm slot #1
    9. reconnect the A.C. power cord to the back of the power supply
    10. boot your system

    Keep in mind that your power supply might be at fault.
    Can you borrow a good quality power supply to test with?

    In a recent thread, the OP had problems booting with an older, name brand power supply.
    He tested his power supply in another system and the other system booted up.
    I told him that his original psu might still be defective and he confirmed that the psu failed when he tried to boot with a new system.

    Older power supplies often have problems due to normal degradation.

    i did not change any settings before trying the dimms. will try your settings. sticker V is 1.5

    this PSU is very good (or was when i had it spec'ed and built 5 yrs ago anyway)

    I'm not questioning your psu model when it was new.
    Very good quality power supplies usually last longer than 5 years but I begin to suspect a psu as it gets older.

    You should be OK using up to 1.6 volts if needed for your memory as the standard spec for 1.5 volt memory is: 1.5 volts plus or minus 0.75 volts.

    If your system still wont boot and post, manually enter the memory timings from the sticker into your bios and also try dram voltage from 1.5 - 1.6 volts using only one installed memory module at a time.

    From my previous post: Are you still trying to get the G.Skill F3-10666CL9D-8GBRL working?
