Are there any bent pins on the 8350? Did you try clearing cmos?

Alright good. I'm sure you're aware the FX-4170 is Bulldozer, not Vishera... so from what you're saying, the 970A-UD3 Rev 1.1 should support the FX-4170 out of the box?

No, what I'm saying is sometimes you will recieve a board that has been opened, flashed to a supporting bios with a sticker stating "New bios now supporting am3+!" or whatever, and repackaged. That is what my 970a-ud3 rev.1.1 came as. I was a little pissed at first because it wasn't a sealed-in-the-box new motherboard and then I noticed the sticker. The 4170 was released in February of 2012. The 970a-ud3 rev.1.1 was first released May of 2011. So it may need a bios update if yours ships with say the F1 bios. If it has been updated to something like the F5 or maybe the F4 bios you "should" be good to go. Hope this clears things up. thumb.gif

It may require a bios update or you have a faulty chip?
