    FD8370FRW8KHK (FX-8370) CPU doesn't work in ASRock Fatal1ty 990FX Killer motherboard

      Hello all.

       

      Before I RMA this chip I just wanted to see if anyone else has experience with this or ideas.

       

      So I have the ASRock Fatal1ty 990FX Killer motherboard which is great and was running a AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition on it for about a year with no problem (the chip also ran in a GB board for like 7 years before that without issue) but recently I needed to upgrade so I looked over the CPU compatibility list for that board and chose the FD8370FRW8KHK which is a FX-8370 chip.   I also made sure I had the latest BIOS while I was there.

       

      Should work right?  Nope.  Put everything back together and the fans and lights all come on but nothing on the monitor.  Put back in the Phenom and boots right up.

       

      So before I RMA the chip, I just want to make sure I'm not missing anything.  Like some trick or setting I forgot about.

       

      thanks!
