I'm trying to set up a Server system for a local charity. We recently bought an Intel SR1695GPRX2ACNA Barebone
System, which includes an Intel Server Board S3420GPRX motherboard.
To go with it, we bought an Intel Xeon X3470 SLBJH - 2.93ghz 8M Cache CPU.
We then bought the following RAM: 4 X Samsung M393B5170DZ1-CF8 4Gb RDIMM PC3-8500
(This RAM is listed as compatible with the motherboard according to an online PDF document I found.)
The system will not boot-up with this RAM in place. I get the 3 beeps errors, which according to the manual is a
RAM issue. The seller of the RAM sent us a different model of RAM (again, Samsung but a different model number,
I never noted which) but the outcome was exactly the same. 3 beeps per RAM module, regardless of which slot
the RAM is placed in.
The seller of the motherboard has just issued a replacement but guess what? The same issue again - 3 beeps on
booting the system and it doesn't go any further. I'm thinking now of maybe trying UDIMM RAM but I'm struggling
with this one.
Any help or advice on this greatly appreciated.
