I am assembling a custom PC. And here are the components I ordered:
Motherboard: SuperMicro MBD-X8SIL-F-B - http://www.supermicro.com/xeon_3400/Motherboard/X8SIL.cfm
Processor: Intel Xeon X3430
RAM: Crucial DDR3-1333 ECC RDIMM - http://www.crucial.com/store/partspecs.aspx?IMODULE=CT102472BB1339
When I power on the system, the yellow led on the motherboard (marked as no. 43 on the manual) is blinking, and I hear a continuos long beep. According to the manual, this happens when the memory installed is unsupported.
Am I installing the wrong memory? If yes, what alternatives do I have. I want to keep this motherboard. I can switch the Processor or the RAM. But I do need at least 24 GBs of RAM.
Thanks in advance.
