Hey, same motherboard I have. In fact, I liked it so much, I named myself after it ;) ...I guess... Good overclocker though...
Anyway, this is a good motherboard and pretty forgiving for all the torture I put it through.
It could be possible that your old one broke and now you just bought a dead one. The reviews on newegg.com say that a LOT of people got DOA ones. If you buy a working one though, its a great board.
I think it uses Phoenix bios and to my knowledge, there is not a beep code that has only 1 beep. Which makes me thing that it could be just a dead board or bad bios chip. The closest beep code to that usually means ram problems... but you have already tried that... And this board is really good with ram. It even supports high-density ram.
Don't discount the fact that it could be a cpu problem though...
I suggest to keep tweaking and fiddling with it (reseating things, trying different hardware, etc). Also, if you can, try a different cpu or put your cpu in another socket 754 mobo to see if thats the problem.
