Re: Question before first boot.
There is no clr cmos jumper, the manual says to use a jumper cap to short 2 pins on the clrcmos0 for 5 seconds.
The cpu may very well be the problem. I think i got it seated right, it had an arrow on one corner and the mobo had an arrow and i lined them up. It seemed to drop right into place. I was going to put the cpu that i know works in last night but other things came up. Going to do it later on tonight.
