    the intel manual just says what the lights are and gives a table that makes no sense

    I was hoping someone here could help

    Dual 2680v2s known working ram known good power supply would run brand new heat sinks and I get the following

    Did you try installing the CPU2 memory stick into the E1 slot instead of G1? In case you don’t have the board manual there, E1 would be the blue slot just above the pcie slot.

    You bet. I have the same board and went through a few issues getting it going. The orange flashing light is what I see on a working board so I’ve never bother to find out what it means. I THINK the three beeps are a memory warning based on this site POST Error Beep Codes for Intel® Server Boards and Intel® Server...

    I would have guessed those beeps are ‘long’ but perhaps not.

    Those beeps sound long to me
    But the table only has an entry for 3 long one short. The other option with 3 as a feature is 3 short. That would point to memory but I’m at a loss here. I will try the memory.

    Memory population error, probably showing 8501 post code on the LED's. Memory is populated furthest from the CPU first, so as already mentioned, the memory slot beside the PCI-e slot (DIMM-E1), will be the first to be populated for CPU2, and slot (DIMM-A1) closest to the edge of the board for CPU1. The slots should be marked DIMM-A1, E1, D1 etc :)

    Boots fine with one proc and one stick of ram. 2 CPUs: lots of beeping and complaining.

    Any thoughts? New power supply I guess? I’ve a 750w rosewill fortress - it’s a great PSU

    This sucks.

    I'm doubtful if it's the power supply, well not unless it's cheap and crappy and borderline ratings wise. I still think RAM is your issue, either not the correct type or the CPU isn't seeing it, perhaps bent pins or muck in them. Get a hold of the manual and double check the RAM type you are using, make certain it's compatible. Also be sure the DIMM's aren't mixed types, Intel boards are very picky about that sort of thing :)
