i recently built a new computer with a phenom II x4 965 processor and a gigabyte ga720 us3 mobo. The processor was being clocked down to 1.6ghz so i upped it to 3.4 again in the bios. The computer will now not post and sometimes restarts soon after i power it up. Case fans and power fans and cpu fans are on, but no motherboard beeps are heard whatsoever.
I just bought an asus m4a78 pro motherboard and am planning to transfer all components to there hoping this will fix the problem.
Do u think that ive blown the cpu or fried the motherboard somehow? Some people say this mobo is compatible, others say its not but its not appearing on giga's website on the compatibility list so im hoping i havnt blown the processor.

What could be the problem anyone?

thanks

Have you tried resetting the bios? if you haven't then this will most likely fix your problem BUT... if it keeps automatically setting your processor to 1.6 then i would say that all components are still fine its just the mobo and processor arent compatible.
