I've tried that numerous times. I guess I'm headed for Memory Express to pick up an Athlon x2. I'm really disappointed about ASUS not having this ready, it could possibly be my fault for purchasing this in July.

If it is a problem with bulldozer that is unfortunate as i suspect that most people don't have an extra older cpu around.

If its not the cpu, this might help: I recently rebuilt my box after upgrading some components and adding a water cooling loop. In order to get it to post I had to reseat the 8 pin and 24 pin mobo connectors (one of them wasn't plugged in all the way methinks) as well as reseating the video card. After that it was smooth sailing. Also you might want to make sure the case headers are in the right spot and the positive and negative wires match your mobo manual illustrations.

I hope this helps, Good luck!

As most others have eluded to, you'll most likely need an AM3 CPU to flash it. Just get one of these.
So before any build with a new mobo you should always take battery out and put it back before powering it on? Why?

Also, im probably missing something here but how can it be the bios needing updating if its a new mobo? How is one meant to know if they need another CPU to get it working before they buy it? Can someone just explain a little? Or is this a bulldozer thing?

Im going ivy bridge when it arrives and hope i dont have the same issue.

OT Well, coming down to a couple of choices now. Thanks for all the suggestions guys, but nothing has worked for me.

1. I have a 4 Year Replacement plan for my motherboard, so I think I am going to replace it.
2. Buy an Athlon x2 and Flash the BIOS

I really dont get why you have to buy a new CPU to flash the BIOS and cant even post with the one you have?

Because you don't know what it may be set to when powering it on. When they tested it at the factory, did they leave the specs at stock? etc. It's just a good habit to get in to. I've seen people mess up their CPUs' because they just powered on a board without resetting the BIOS (pulling the battery).
I always just pull the battery as soon as I take it out of the box, put the rig together, then slap it back in.

No this happened with the x6 CPUs' as well. In order for some boards to support it, they would need to be flashed to a new BIOS, and you needed a quad or less to do so.

Why get an x2? Just get a Sempy single core for like $30 new. x2's run about double that.

I can't find any Sempy's at my local Memory Express. Cheapest AM3 they have is an Athlon x2. I'd rather have an x2 in under an hour than a Sempy in a week.
