Windows 7: Modifing old desktop machine in new case

Cpu is installed and windows shows it Q9550

Bad thing is the ram give a continuous beep and power on and nothing
Old ram works of course it's at 800Mhz and the new is 1333Mhz so I'm guessing either the bios need to be adjusted or the ram is bad or flat out the wrong Mhz ?
Here the mobo spec's and compatible upgrades :/

So when it beeps you get no post what so ever, what happens if you use just of one the sticks in the slot closest to the cpu?

Can you test the sticks in another of your pcs? The bios is not set to a set ram setting right it's on auto? You might want to try resetting your cmos first and what model is the old ram?

Hi,
Here's the old ram
2GB DDR3 PC3-12800 Unbuffered NON-ECC 1.5V 256Meg x 64, CT25664BA160BA from Crucial.com

This is what Crucial says an upgrade would be
2GB DDR3 PC3-12800 Unbuffered NON-ECC 1.5V 256Meg x 64 upgrades for null null, [Ljava.lang.String;@57a157a1 from Crucial.com

After chatting with Crucial the ram I have is 1600Mhz so the 1333Mhz is a downgrade and not supported anyway so my old ram is good enough
If anything I could of gotten 1600Mhz G-Skill :/
It's as high of ram the board can take no matter what cpu is in it so I'm guessing

Modifing old desktop machine in new case
Temps so far hovering at 38c
Had to look back to see what the temps were before
Now with the new cpu are hovering at 41c that seems to be the system temp not the cpu temp
Same for the previous 38c was.

Everything seems okay and pretty quick
New wei score jump from the previous 6.0

Switched out the 212 EVO for a NH-D14 and temps are way better and stable

Considering the load and MHz the NH-D14 is doing a much better job than the 212 EVO.
Much much cooler using the NH-D14. Money well spent.

Even the GPU is 5C cooler.
