    I have the same mobo and cpu along with the very same problem . From what I was told by Asus support the CPU is the new C3 stepping and they are JUST NOW sending out this mobo with C3 support in the bios..
    You options are RMA board or use another AM3 cpu with C2 stepping stick it in and update Bios to the newest one supporting C3 the swap back to the 955 cpu ..
    Newegg knows this and is still selling this combo anyways!! I AM NOT A HAPPY CAMPER.
