how can I find out the stepping?
Here's a pic of one chip
He probably doesn't know what version of bios it is since it has barely even powered on yet. I'd start to question the power supply .. Are you sure it's a good one, have you tested it with another machine and/or a power supply tester? Are you sure that model is heavy duty enough to run this piece with two processors? I assume it has 2x 8pins and you have both securely plugged in on both ends right Can you borrow a different bigger PSU and try that...
I tried a 1000w psu and got the same result.
