A bit of a weird one. I'm having an issue on a new PC build using components from an old PC and I'm trying to diagnose the issue using POST beeps, except I'm confused by the cadence. The first beep sounds different to the rest, doesn't this count or does the first get ignored?

I'm posting under CPU because 5 beeps feels more likey since it isn't even booting. If it isn't a CPU issue, what do you recommend I try next?

There are long beeps and short beeps, combos of which denote different culprits. Then you look it up by MB model and beeps.
