Pentium D 930 and Asus P5WD2 Posting Issues

This is intended more as an FYI.

ASUS P5WD2 Motherboard
Pentium D 930 Processor
Corsair DDR 2 XMS2 2-512mb chips

After installing everything, dotting i's and crossing t's, I pushed the power button and no POST. Tried a new video card, nothing happened. Tried different RAM, nothing happened. Was beginning to get pissed.

Because the 900 series processors are soooo new, installed a P4 processor thinking that ASUS board may be compatible with dual cores in the 800 series (although advertised for 900)....the P4 chip brought it to POST. Used this processor to flash the ASUS board with latest bios, reinstalled the 930 processor and it Posted!
