Every time I boot, I get the press f1 to run setup with the message "NEW CPU Installed"
I've tried updating the bios, its at 1102, but I get the same issue.. I have a 1100t cpu installed
I heard of something similar happening on the Sabertooth, my friend was using a FX-8150. He pulled out the FX-8150 and installed an old 965 he had kicking around and then updated the BIOS to the latest version, once that was done it worked properly.
Not sure if this is the same problem, but he couldn't get the updated BIOS to work with the FX-8150 installed.
Do you happen to have an old AMD cpu kicking around you could try?
