I recently purchased a motherboard with my graphics card and CPU. After installing everything, it starts up, but there is no output. When I stripped down to just the power supply, motherboard, and CPU, it doesn't beep like there is no RAM, but all the fans and lights come on.

Is this DOA? I just want to be sure.

MB: Asrock 990fx extreme3
Graphics: amd radeon 7870 ghz oc edition
CPU: amd fx 8320 black edition

  • What do you mean by "there is no output"? – user201262 Oct 2 '13 at 20:59
  • When you remove the RAM, does it beep then? – user3463 Oct 2 '13 at 21:50
  • No it does not beep. – P.J. Oct 2 '13 at 22:02

The 8320 CPU is not supported by the ASRock 990FX Extreme3 motherboard. You can find the complete support list on ASRock's web site.

  • Which means, essentially, that it acts like there is no CPU. – Debra Oct 3 '13 at 1:20
  • There are many people using this board with the 8320 "Please check the BIOS version lable on the BIOS chip is 1.30 or newer to support FX-8320." AsRock SUPPORT From newegg.com/Product/… So it looks like the list might not be updated. (wouldnt be the first time) – Psycogeek Oct 3 '13 at 2:56
  • Looks like I may have overlooked this I did consider it but i forgot before i submitted the RMA well I will see in a weeks time. Thank you I just assumed that the Bios were up to date... – P.J. Oct 3 '13 at 3:39
