I just got a new i7 860, but seem to be having some issues installing it.
I removed my cooler, took my i3 530 out, put the i7 860 in, greased it up, then put the cooler on.
However, upon boot, my board (Gigabyte H55m-USB3) gives me the error that my video card is not properly seated. When I put my i3 530 back in, everything boots fine.
Thanks in advance,
The i3 530 chip has an integrated video capability which the H55 chipset recognizes. The i7-860 does not have such a video capability, so the H55 chipset can not recognize it. You will need a discrete video card in the pcie x16 slot to get any video output. Look in the bios and disable the integrated video capability.
