The cpu light on the p8p67 pro will only stay lit if there is something wrong with the cpu. Its supposed to cycle through all of the red lights and then they will go out as the systems check out. How did you manage to bend the pins???

that is what i am wondering..... CPU light is bad? then it must have come with bent pins because right before i sent it back the light went off and before that it would not go off

how do you check for bent pins? i don't want to get screwed again if this one comes with bent pins, and i don't know how to check

i got my mobo and CPU today, newegg rma was good, but i am wondering, which way does the CPU go in the mobo? since i apparently messed that part up, i think it goes with the letters being readable

OK, i finally got it up and running last Wednesday, now i have 2 problems, one, my computer has to go through the splash screen 3 times to boot, twice it says can not find hard drive, and second, the temp reading for the cpu is 206F 97C and after a few hours of running it, i turn it off and unplug it, and touch the cpu heatsink, and it is cool to the touch, that concerns me, shouldn't it burn my finger off if i touch it right after i turn it off after running for a few hours?

some minor problems include: slow installation of games, slow response time to opening applications, inability to detect a ps/2 keyboard, games start up slowly, etc... etc... and i thought i got a good hard drive and mobo, guess not!

Your sig says programmer so you're probably way ahead of me on this... just my 2 cents... I had similar problems with my 3rd build. Not recognizing the keyboard, multiple splash screens, blue screens and slow speeds. I reflashed the BIOS, RMA'd the board and almost threw the computer across the room at one point. The problem ended up being unstable RAM. The problem was intermittent so it was tough to trace but the RAM was definitely the problem. I hope you get this thing running better - your hardware is excellent - especially the F3. 2 of those in RAID 0 are FAST.

i switched the sticks around and took one out, now i only have 2 splash screens, still says no hard drive detected before it will boot the OS, but, my ps/2 keyboard is detected, everything runs faster, and overall, it works better, now nif i could figure out my cpu temp problem, and get my brother to relinquish his ram that he is not using, i could figure out this hard drive not detected problem!

now this must be one very bad stick of ram! i put the ram back in and in the second slot this time, it will not go to the splash screen at all, and the computer powers up, powers down, then powers up again

i sent one stick back and i get to keep the other stick while the rma processes, so that is good, but my cpu is still showing 206 Fahrenheit and 97 Celsius, so what is wrong with that? please help, please

Reseat the heatsink. Simply remove it, and put it back on. Do you have any spare thermal paste? You'd probably need that too, if the pre-applied hasn't set in already.
