Steve I removed the cover plate and I didn't notice anything bent but I also didn't have my glasses on to check, just carefully places the chip in and tightened the cover down. Thanks all going to hit the SF thread in the AM then start trying some of these great idea's. Cheers !

Yeah Steve I guess removing all but the essential stuff might be an idea too.

Plus my new board has an unusual DIMM slot application in that it has the 1st sticks in what you would think would be the second set of sticks?

Just to clarify, what did you plug into the boards 8 pin CPU plug?
Does your PSU have an 8 pin plug or the double 4 pin plugs?

Make sure at least 1 RAM card in DIMM1, blue slot closest to CPU.

Latest BIOS update v11.0: '- Update BIOS for IvyBridge 22nm CPU' this would indicate a previous issue.

Googling found not able to post is a fairly common problem for this board, several said an RMA board did the same thing.
If disconnecting everything not essential doesn't allow it to post, then try a bench test with nothing connected and add components and test.

Pulled all ram but one stick (crucial 4gb on approved list) pulled. Same on/off/on loop. Then triple checked all power connections and pulled sata and 3.0 usb cards and adapters with same result. Then let the rig cycle about 3-5 times and got the dreaded 4 beeps from the speaker. I will have to call MSI next week.

Since this is a new build, you might want to double check the locations of your standoffs.

Also check the polarity of the case leads connections to the MB to make sure they are correctly orientated to + and -, some don't matter, some do.

I don't believe this has anything to do with my loop issue but does anyone know if with 2 dedicated 6 pins running to my GPU card would I need the 6 pin to the mobo? See picture, sorry for shaky pen.

Alan, if you have an extra stick of ram around, try it. And, if you can RMA it back to the vendor, you'll be much better off than dealing with the manufacturer. Been there done that. It really doesn't matter which manufacturer it is. The 6 pin on the board is usually for if you have several GPU cards, to provide sufficient power to the GPUs. For 1 card usually is not necessary. The 8 pin ATX is necessary.

Plus, you have a P67 board. They require a bios update to run an IB. Without that bios, it won't run it. On my P67 board, I had to put a SB CPU in to do a bios update to get the IB to post. You need bios version 11.0 for your board.

Another good thing I think is the led's on my one stick of crucial ram was lighted all my blue leds on the mobo are lighted but when it cycles several times then the four beep come, which tell's me it's a bad timer on the mobo, or at least that's what I'm led to believe....any other thoughts ?

Steve, this is the B3 revision mobo and it's all ready to play with Ivy B. so they say as a preemptive call to MSI qualified that before even purchasing. I have an excellent track record with MSI and man this is a sweet mobo if an older series that I picked up deeply discounted. Keeping my fingers crossed all will work out in time.
