I started getting parts for a new system starting in September 2011 with a Crosshair V which I just shelved until the Bulldozer was released. Back in march I ordered my FX8120 finally along with some Patriot Division 2 15000 as they were on sale, and just finally got my cooler master 690 II this afternoon. I am using a new OCZ gameXstream 700w which I had sitting in my shelf for maybe 3 years, I just never got around to putting it in my old system so saved it for a new system. My video card is my old HD 4870.
So I got everything put together, took my time being careful making sure to get everything right off the bat. I hook everything up and boot the system to find I get no post nor do I even get a beep. I have had ROG connect up and running on my notebook playing with the poster and it sits on code 005A.. I have cleared CMOS every way possible and still no go. Moved my memory sticks around and still nothing, tried with just one in different slots and still the same result.
I have no idea how to find out what BIOS it is running currently. Could it be that the BIOS on my board doesn't support my FX8120? or is my board dead possibly? I can't afford to buy another AM3 cpu just for the sake of flashing the BIOS, so if that is indeed the case I am hoping that the computer repair shop here has a AM3 they can put in so I can update. Is there any way I can use ROG connect to flash my BIOS, or some way via USB?
