I am upgrading my system and neglected to purchase new RAM, and my old DDR3 is not compatible with this board. Everything else is set up except for the RAM so I wanted to test it out just to see if I could get it to POST. Unfortunately that is not happening - just have the red LED illuminated and no video. Is that because no RAM is installed yet? I would have thought that I would be able to POST and launch the BIOS without having memory seated... figured it would have some amount of onboard memory.

Thanks in advance.

No RAM no post sorry Wink

Once you get some RAM you will be able to test the system, not posting without it isn't a bad sign.
