I just upgraded my system cpu from a amd phenom 2 x6 thuban 2.8ghz to the fx 8350 4.0ghz everything went smooth until I tried to boot up and nothing.. Lights come on fans spin no indication of error at all.. I tried clearing cmos nothing, I removed the on board battery nothing. Swapped ram around tried different video hook ups the works I can't figure out the deal.. There was a little thermal paste that I accidentally got on a couple pins but I cleaned that all up with isopropyl alcohol completely clean no residual and I don't believe any got down into the motherboard socket. What else am I not trying to get the boot screen to kick on? For full system specs it's my "current build" on my profile for convinence I will say my motherboard is the Asus M5A99X Evo Rev 1.01.
