I started on a new build using an Asus motherboard, but having troubles getting it to post. It does nothing, except the hdd starts up and the fans run at 100%. I've tried running it on integrated graphics , with no luck. No beeps, without ram installed. I know it's not a PSU issue since I've used it only for a few months, it was new when I got it. I've just read that Asus boards are picky about what ram will work on them. The ram I'm using are 2x Hynix HMT151R7BFR4C-H9 4gb ECC unbuffered ram, the cheapest 8GB option I could find on Amazon. Is it possible that my bios needs to be updated? If that's the case, the only alternate cpu I have is an Am2 CPU.

Specs of build:
Asus M5A78L/USB-3 mother board
2x 4gb ram
XFX Radeon 6870 Black Edition
Logisys 550 watt PSU
AMD Phenom ii x4 840T

ECC Memory is meant for server and workstation boards. try to find an non-ecc stick on ebay or pull one out of another computer. Also check the 20+4 pin connector and see if it is seated correctly. If not the motherboard is dead.
