Default Re: Issues with first build, Please help!

FWIW, a lot of reviews on NewEgg show that people are having a lot of problems with that board. You might have to update the BIOS to run the FX CPU. To do that, you need an AM3 CPU. If you don't have one laying around, you can get a Sempron for $40.

the green led on my motherboard is on when i turn on the psu, and i can feel a little bit of warmth from the cpu too. Never thought it would be such a hassle to get it working lol :s
