I just bought a intel desktop board DH67BL so I could update my rig.  I put in a new i5 processor that matches the socket also.  So I went ahead and put everything together and plugged it in to boot up for the first time and got a beep code.  It's three beeps then a pause then three more beeps it continues in this pattern several times.  Looked this error up in the book and it had to do with the RAM, I know all the ram sticks work because they worked in my old board that I am now replacing.  But I went ahead and did one stick at a time in each slot and got the same three beep codes.  The GPU is not in at this time, I left it out to make things easier for narrowing down the issue.  After moving the ram sticks around I took out all sticks to see what would happen when I would boot up with nothing plugged in and got the same beep code.  So how could I be getting the same beep code with nothing plugged in??  Processor is seated correctly I even unplugged the drives from the SATA ports to see what would happen and still nothing.  I'm at a loss this is a brand new board and processor.

I always start simple. 

Is the Ram compatible with your mother board? Also the beeps should go off if nothing is in due to it still being a memory issue meaning there is no ram hooked up.

yes all 4 sticks are compatible with the motherboard.  I'm going to pick up a new stick just so I know it is new and working will post with results.
