Concerning the ASUS Sabertooth X58 mobo......

I just put together a nice watercooled build using a i7-975 extreme and 12gb of kingston memory (model is on asus approved vendor listing for this mobo).

I have the CPU LED and the DRAM LED staying lit when I power on the computer. It does not post and I am getting no errors beeps (no beep at all) during post. According to the manual for this mobo if these lights stay lit this indicates a problem with those components.

The Boot_Device LED and VGA LED are not lit, indicating they are working fine per the manual.

Anyone have ideas what issues with RAM and/or CPU is keeping these LEDs lit and thus preventing the machine from posting?

Here's the link to the mobo manual from Asus - page 56 mentions the LEDs. - http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/LGA1366/Sabertooth_X58/e5995_sabertooth_X58.pdf

thanks!
