Upgraded current system cpu now system won't boot

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.

What was the bios version of your motherboard?

I thought it was pre-installed with the correct bios for the Fx series however I haven't tried that yet so I'll check thank you!

Your motherboard launched before the fx series. So you might have an incompatible bios. It is quite easy to fix if you still have your old processor.

Oh boy.. I didn't realize how out of date my bios was.. V0705 now upgrading to V1708... o_o

The bios version that supports the fx 8350 is V1604. So I think your problem is now solved.
