So I recently purchased a new cpu for my rig as i have been upgrading it. Did my research and purchased a AMD fx 8350 to replace my AMD fx 4170. I put the 8350 into the pc and nothing happens when i hit the power button except the fans all turn on. Now i have reset BIOS, updated to the latest version that is said to support the 8350 (f8f), tried starting with ram removed, and am running out of things to try. Now i have put the 4170 back in and it runs fine. At this point i am wondering if CPU is DOA?
