3LEDs indicate that your CPU has been detected, and the board is trying to detect the RAM.

 

Can you try only putting one stick in and see if it will post? Use the orange slot furthest from the CPU.

 

If it still doesn't post, try to clear the CMOS (directions as per the manual)

Make sure you do not power up with the CMOS clear jumper set.

 

Also, could you click User CP and edit your signature with your system specs. As much detail as possible. Use my signature as a guide. This will really help us help you.

here is the signature, ill add more once the system boots up again and get more detailed info.

 

Update: Apparently one of the memory modules was the culprit as the system wont even post when that memory stick was in the sytem, I tried that same stick in all 4 mem slots and system woudlnt post. tried the other stick and booted everytime.

 

im using my backup (value) ram will get them redlines rma'd.
