intel S1200BTL with Xeon Qc E3-1275 Processor

Dear

I just bought:
- Intel S1200BTL motherboard.
- Xeon Qc E3-1275 Processor
- 2 x Transcend JetRam 4 GB 240-Pin DDR3 Desktop DIMM 1333 MHz
- 2 x Hitachi Deskstar 3.5 inch 3TB 7200RPM SATA III 6Gbps 64MB Cache
- Intel Server Chassis P4304 (P4304XXSFCN)

I installed them, but when I turn it on, there is nothing in monitor and it just keep rebooting (I know it becuase the CPU fan just turn off and the turn on).

Please help...

I see a couple of issues with the specs you posted. 1. You have the wrong ram. This board uses ECC memory(server grade memory) and you have non-ecc desktop memory(on some boards this works but usually they will specify this in the specs). 2. Your 3tb Hdds are not going to be bootable since this board does not have UEFI.
Compatible memory from crucial.

Could be a number of things. Take it down to basics:
-mobo out of case and on something non-conductive.
- 1 stick of ram (at a time)
- video
- cpu.
- power supply.

manually jump the Front Header pins to start the system. If it still reboots, one of those 4 things is bad, or you don't have something hooked up correctly.

Not to take any credit from jamietoner, but this is in response to your questions.

You have to change the RAM to ECC and change the drive.  UEFI is a type of BIOS http://www.uefi.org/about/ and is required for booting drives larger than 2TB http://www.hitachigst.com/tech/techlib.nsf/techdocs/869E4925CC72E233862577E100235119/$file/Deskstar_3TB_FAQ_finalwebv2.pdf

I ordered 8GB Kit (4GBx2), 240-pin DIMM, DDR3 PC3-8500 memory module http://www.crucial.com/store/mpartspecs.aspx?mtbpoid=43041A9AA5CA7304

I hope it will work

About HDD, I have 2TB and I think it will work.

That kit should work as crucial guarantees compatibility with that motherboard. 2tb drives will work fine as boot drives. You can still use the 3tb drives as storage you just have to format them as GTP drives.
