Last week, my rig would not start up.

MOBO: ASUS|RAMPAGE IV EXTREME X79 2011
PSU: Roswell Valens 600W
CPU: CPU INTEL|CORE I7 3930K 3.2G 12MB R
MEM: 4 x 4G|CORSAIR Dominator-GT DDR3 CMT16GX3M4X2133C9
COOL: CPU COOL NOCTUA|NH-D14 R

I am breadboarding with these components and 1 memory module.

(1) Motherboard turned on and went through its POST sequence. Then, I heard the following sequence of beeps from the mobo. One long beep, then 3 short beeps. Then one long beep and 4 short beeps, followed by another short beep.

Here is a link to a Vimeo video of the Bios beeps during POST:

(2) I tested each of the 4 memory modules with the breadboard setup and heard the same beep patterns.

From the User Manual:
(1) One short beep: VGA detected, Quick boot set to disabled, No keyboard detected
(2) One continuous beep followed by two short beeps than a pause (repeated: No memory detected
(3) One continuous beep followed by three short beeps: No VGA detected
(4) One continuous beep followed by four short beeps: Hardware component failure.

I'm not sure how to proceed. Does this mean my computer is shot? Any idea which if any components are bad? Please, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
