Desktop DP67DE with i5-3470, 3 beep error code

Hello:

 

Please excuse me if this problem is minor as I'm still a rookie at building computers on my own.

 

My motherboard is DP67DE, and I'm currently trying to install i5-3470 3.20GHZ into this motherboard, upon starting I constantly receive 3 long beep error code, which I did some searching online and it says memory error. I have tried numerous memory sticks that is compatible and working on other computers, but still the same results... Please help! What could it be? I also realize that this is an older motherboard that requires minimum bios 77 to run i5 3rd generation, could it be because my bios is old?

RAMs that I'm currently trying to run on this board:

Micron 8GB 2x 4GB DDR3 PC3-12800U MT8JTF51264AZ-1G6E1 240 Pin 1RX8 (1600Mhz?)

Thanks in advance!

Please review section 1.5 on page 18 of the tech spec: http://downloadmirror.intel.com/19490/eng/DP67DE_TechProdSpec05.pdf http://downloadmirror.intel.com/19490/eng/DP67DE_TechProdSpec05.pdf

Does your memory have chips on both sides? if so, it is double-sided, which is not supported.

Also, the minimum bios is 77. So, you should be at 77, 78, or 79. You will likely need the processor you had before the i5-3470.

Make sure you follow the instructions carefully prior to attempting an upgrade.

All standard disclaimers apply.

Thanks for your response and your link.

In the file it says only Double-sided DIMMs with x16 organization are not supported

What does the "x16" represent? My memory sticks has the wording "1Rx8" on them, are they the same?

Thanks again!

Your DIMMs are not double-sided (they're x8, not x16).

As Doc explained, you need to put the previous memory and processor back into the system and then follow these upgrade instructions: http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/boards-and-kits/desktop-boards/000005859.html Updating the BIOS to Support 3rd Generation Intel Core Processors. Once you have upgraded to the latest available BIOS for your board, you should be able to replace the processor and memory...

Hope this helps,

Thanks! I bought this motherboard online and I don't have any other cpus/rams that came with it so I don't have a way to test them right now. I'll probably get some used parts sometime soon and hopefully I can get the bios updated.
