Lol, I've done that before!

Another thing to test is your RAM. If it's not seated firmly in DIMM A1 (the closest slot by your CPU), that could definitely cause a repeated loop as the board is looking for the RAM, and trying to establish a FSB match connection. If it's seated firmly, and is in A1, (I recommend troubleshooting with one stick only) I'd swap sticks, and see if it posts then. If not, test the memory in another machine.
I'm sure we'll get this hammered out!
