New build with E1230 v5 CPU, 2 x DDR4-233 ECC UDIMM, when powered up the led on the front and on the system board is green, I get 3 beeps and the fans start speeding up to a very high speed but no output to video. I have replaced the RAM in every slot arrangement possible. Tested the RAM on a different board both sticks were good. Put the RAM from the other system on the server board with the same results. What is the next step? Do I send the board back?
When you get 3 long beeps means that the system halted because a fatal error related to the memory was detected.

Try to test your system with no memory, you will get 3 long beeps, this means that the server board is detecting the processor. If you are not getting any beeps the problem might be related with the processor or the server board.
Can you also provide the part number of the memory that you are using?
Have you tried testing the system with just one memory module?
Additionally, you can try the system with the minimal system configuration, no PCI cards, remove the hard drives, just one memory modules
As one final recommendation, you can test your system outside of the chassis on a non-static surface and check if the problem continues and if does, you can test your processor on a different system.
If the processor works on the other system, the problem might be related with the memory slots of the server board.
