I damaged an Asus M5A87 mobo in my homebuilt desktop, which was running an FX-6300.  I installed the FX-6300 on the replacement mobo, and it would not POST or boot.  I installed an AMD Athlon II x2 245 instead, and successfully booted w/ the replacement mobo into Windows 10, and updated the BIOS to latest version, to ensure it would support an FX-6300 or FX-8300.  But when I tried the FX-6300 in the replacment mobo, it would not POST or boot.  I tried an FX-8300, which was brand new, but had been sitting on a shelf for a couple of years, and the replacement mobo still would not POST or boot. 


Asus tech support is suggesting that I contact you at AMD to see if there is some way to test and see if the FX-8300 and/or the FX-6300 are working and functional.  Can I send them to you for testing?  Please advise.
