    I tried resetting CMOS but no joy.

    If it helps, I am seeing the QLED's showing the CPU LED on solid and the memory LED blinking. That sounds like memory but I know the memory is good since I have two sets and both work with the Athlon.

    I'm thinking either RMA this bad boy or just replace it with a sabretooth...

    Steve,

    Reason I thought about swapping the PSU is that the FXs do draw a bit more current and that your existing PSU might be having problems supplying more current (even though it is > 800 watts).

    After you try another PSU (just to rule out the PSU being a problem) I would follow HiVizMan's advice and RMA the board.

    BTW: You will be very happy with the Thermaltake CPU Cooler that you have...I have the same one in "my inventory" and it did a great job of easily reducing my idle temps by 20 degrees F from the stock CPU Heatsink/Fan.

    I know someone who has the Sabertooth and it is a very nice board also.

    Regards-Brian

    Cmos

    You must clear the cmos with the new processor in the motherboard, this is what I have just read in A+ certification classes. This must be done everytime that you install a different model of cpu. If I remember correctly the motherboard has an easy way to do so. The error you are receiving is something along the lines of the motherboard thinking that the cpu had somehow malfunctioned because it isn't performing the same way that it was before (because you had/have a different cpu in it) I don't think that it is a psu issue because my board is running with the 8350 and I only have the 8 pin power and the 24 pin power in the motherboard, not the extra 4 pin gpu molex (EZ PLUG) nor the extra 4 pin cpu plug
