    Mickey you may have 2400 in and it may support 2133 but unless you overclocked the ram you likely have very expensive 1333 or 1600 speeds at the moment.

    What speed is your ram actually showing? Please use this or many other good free programs for this info.

    CPU-Z CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting

    Do you have any hardware diagnostics software like CoreTemp? If you do, they might be what is making the beeps. These software usally have alarms for temperature and other things.

    So your ram is running at 2133mhz or trying to and that's very good if stable? Getting the full speed levels out of ram can take some time and will have limits related to mobo and cpu and other factors.

    yes, was a little miffed at first as cpuz said it was running at 1066. then i was told i needed to multiply by 2 as it is dual channel. so pretty please with that. i emailed gigabyte a few days ago and i just got a reply. they said "Dear Sir,

    Does the system POST or boot up?

    If not please try to reset the CMOS -
    1) Disconnect the power cord from the power supply. Remove the CMOS battery (the flat silver disk) from the motherboard using a srew drive or similar implement. Leave it out for a minute or two, then replace it and power on the system. The BIOS settings should have been reset, allowing the computer to boot.
    2) Go into the BIOS - “Load optimized default”
    3) Save settings and exit.

    do you guys reckon i should give that a go. i wouldnt think that would make any difference as i was running to completely stock, i hadnt tampered with the bios when i was getting the beeps.

    Removing the battery will just return any changes like the ones for the ram you just made back to factory stock levels. If you don't mind feeling your way carefully around the bios and changing the ram speed back then go for it.

    fair enough. the ram was just a case of turning it up from 1333 to 2400
