    But that is not the RAM im using, I am using DDR DIMM Ram. I've tried alot of things to fix it but nothing works. So if anyone can figure out how to fix this it would be GREATLY appreciated.

    Maybe it's just me, but I don't see any operating system having been purchased.

    You can look in the motherboard manual for Beep Codes . . that should tell you what it stumbled over. Some usual suspects:

    - You did use thermal paste or a pad between the processor and heatsink?
    - Reseat memory, reconnect all fan connections and front panel connectors.
    - Swap out the RAM . . Does the board support DDR ram?
