That really bites CTA :(

Could you try posting in the Buy/sell/trade here (with a link to this thread) and see if anyone would trade for some other RAM brand?

1 long 2 short is a video adapter error, and not ram. Got a video card plugged in?

Yes, but in your original post you said one long one short one short. Which is why I said video error.

So, which is it? 3 short beeps, or one long and two short?

I've used G-Skill ram in lots of builds, and never had one not boot because it wasn't on the approved list. I've got G-skills in my X58 Classified, and I know they aren't on EVGA's list.

You must have a video card plugged in to boot an X58 board, as it doesn't have onboard video.
