I have an ITX box with an ASRock FM2A88X-ITX+ motherboard. It came with an AMD 5300 Dual-Core CPU. I've installed Windows 7 SP1 Ultimate.
I upgraded the CPU to an AMD 7870K but when I try to play a BluRay with this CPU, the HDCP status is disabled.
I've just taken it out and put the 5300 back and the HDCP is enabled / Ok.
Could I have damaged the 7870K when I installed it in the socket to cause the HDCP issue?
I really, really want to use the 7870K as I can see a massive and noticeable system improvement overall using this CPU.
I've updated the BIOS to the latest to ensure it's compatible with that CPU.
Any help / advice?
I don't think you could've damaged it. Try updating to the latest 17.4.4 WHQL driver and check to see if that works as expected.
