You may have a short on the mobo, make sure u don't screw it in too tightly. Maybe your ram isn't properly seated in the slots? Theres lots of possiblities.

Try taking everything out of the case, make sure its working and then start over.

i dont think its a short circut as something wolud have fried and the system wouldnt have startted at all .

Did you know that the beeps are for diagnostic purpose if you can tell me how many beeps you get i can tell you were the problem is.

Most probably its ram not being seated probably

You might have wired the system speaker headers wrong. Check your motherboards manual for reference to your motherboards headers.

take it all out and run it table top. maybe you had a stndoff in the wrong place.
make sure you gfx/memory/cpu are all seated properly.

never took the ram out so thats outta the question. I have a feeling I could have somthing hooked up wrong from front panel to the mobo. hd led,hd active led,pwr switch ect. can that cause this issue?
now the connectors are labeled but they'll fit on either way 180 degrees. should the lables face the f panel or toward the mobo.(back of pc)?

There should be a dedicated port for the CPU fan!
