Default MSI P35 Neo2 will not POST.

I got my new mobo today. Installed my E8400, powered up, after 5 seconds the system would shut down and reboot in a continuous loop. Beep codes are telling me that the CPU is damaged or not properly installed. Remembering the incident with my Q6600, I reseated the HSF with the same results.
Could be the BIOS? I installed a Pentium D 805 and nothing new.

I am so pissed off right now .

Hopefully there is a simple solution to this. Any help is appreciated.

Bios doesn't support the processor, stick your quad in and upgrade the bios.

It should support the D 805 though, shouldn't it? And I my Q6600 is gone .

It is the 1.2 revision anyway so should support the E8400 right out of the box.

EDIT: After doing a little more searching it turns out the D 805 is not supported and E8400 requires BIOS v 1.8. I have V1.4.

Guess I'll have to find another CPU somewhere...

Pretty nice looking board actually compared to my puke coloured P5K:
