Today I purchased intel C2Duo E8500, motherboard I have is Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3/S3. When I put the CPU into the socket and turn the computer on nothing appears on my screen. This is strange to me since if the mobo didnt support the CPU a msg saying that would appear? Maybe I was wrong. Now I ended up putting my old cpu back in and everything is fine. Can anyone confirm that it is the motherboard thats causing the problem?? Thanks in advance.
