I need some help please. I recently advised a good friend of mine to upgrade Phenom x3 to the FX9590. He has the same board as me, the Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 rev4, however upon installing the CPU and powering up, it doesn't even get to the BIOS post.
We've tried re-seating everything, putting things back one by one etc. Weirdly, he put his old CPU back in and it's still doing the same. Any ideas?
Worst case is that we can't fix it, if that's the case then what is a good mobo that works out of the box? (no BIOS flash needed) please?
