Hi, i recently bought 2 used parts on Ebay and i'm trying to figure out what the issue is while building my pc, perhaps you pro's here know what the issue could be.

The motherboard keeps beeping when there is a ramstick inserted, when i don't insert any ram it's silent, everything else was removed, only SATA SSD, CPU&cooler+ power and motherboard power, RAM where in the motherboard when it was beeping.While testing i used 1 or 2 ram sticks, 2 different variations 8Gb and 16Gb(pictures below).

Motherboard: Gigabyte ga-x79-ud3 v1.0
CPU: Intel Xeon E5-2603
(picture below)
I also purchased an so i could see if its a cpu issue. The Intel i7 3820 i bought also gave me the same beeping.
I'm at a loss of what it can be, the PSU is brand new, i ordered a brand new psu(again) to see if that's the issue.

Here is some info i found about the CPUs its somewhat chinese to me.

Here is an article i found with somewhat the same issue, saying the board needs 2nd cable?(i assume he means 1 for motherboard power and 1 for cpu)

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

Try populating slots 1 and 2(as stated in the motherboard manual, here, page 16) and see if you can get the system to POST. On the note about memory, you have two sticks of ram from two different kits. You should try with one kit, not two.

Inspect the CPU socket for any bent or broken pins. What are you using to cool the processor on the motherboard?

Hello, first of all thanks for trying to help me out.
I should have been more clear in the original post, i have 2 sets of rams, 16Gb sticks and 8Gb sticks i tried both dual and single slot and they both would not boot the system, the single one is from my last attempt.

Also i found this topic on your forums which is about the CPUs but not really familiar with how the bios works on this motherboard i assume there is a standard bios (F16?) which support the standard CPUs like my Xeon or I7?
