Radeon x1950 pro 512 mb
intel p4 cedar mill 631 3.0ghz 65 nm
Asus P5GD1-FMS 775 Intel 915GExp motherboard
ePower 450 watts 2 fan psu with 2 12 v rails 16 amps each rail
200 GB 7200 rpm hdd unit
plug and play 17 inch moniter

(misc items too lazer mouse key board, dvd drive and cd rom drive.)

as i said before every part was tested and works but i think the mother board isnt compatible with the cpu, i remember asking you guys if it was but now i think it isnt. dont get me wrong it does comply with p4 800 fsb but i dunno maybe bios is wrong i have rev 1.1 bios listed on the board....

when i press the button everything is on the hdd is reading and spinning but the moniter doesnt show anything...

usually 90nm vs 65nm chip design doesn't make a difference in compatibility, but after reading some reviews and such, true to your word, isn't compatible... I would say RMA the board if you can and get a new board cause the chip is worth holding onto...

LOL@ the one guy who said he got his chip to 8ghz.....

a BIOS update is always helpful in getting a board to recognise a new CPU, you may want to check why your CPU is running so hot, my athlon x2 idles at 27 degrees, did you apply the thermal paste properly?

thing is, this is how it was running before my computer all fried :P i just upgraded the parts that fried which was video card mobo and psu, i thought the cpu also fried but isnt the case.. this cedar mill wont show anything on the moniter at all but the computer will turn on... i applied thermal paste correctly ive been applying it alot

btw tested it out with a graphics intensive game cpu was using 44% the temp shot up to 64% and was between 61-65 C
