I turned off my computer for a while and when I turned it back on, it wont start it has a f3 error code in it. I searched for answers in forums and it says ram condition. I already tested the memory on other computers and it worked fine. What do you think is the problem?

    Have you tried reseating the cpu? Check the cpu socket for bent pins while doing the reseat.

    Code F3 seems to be "Recovery firmware image is found" according to the Motherboard Debug Post Codes in the EVGA FAQs.
     
    Make sure there's no CD in the CD-ROM drive or USB flash drives plugged in.

    Clear CMOS using the second method found here..Turn off/unplug the PSU and remove the CMOS battery for 15-20 minutes..Then put the CMOS battery back in and plug in/turn on the PSU..Try again.
     
    See how that rolls.

    F3 isn't even listed in the x58 classified online manual.
