Question about Mobo/CPU Compatability

I just recently bought an ASRock 870 Extreme3 and an AMD 955 BE CPU.

I don't have any POST or video.

Looked at http://www.asrock.com/mb/cpu.asp?Model=870%20Extreme3 and it doesn't show HDZ955FBGMBOX in the list of supported CPUs. Did a search on HDZ955FBK4DGM(BE) and a few places say it's the same as the first one.

This true?

These are the errors I'm getting: (see http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/287430-30-asrock-extr...)
D1 - Perform keyboard controller BAT test. Check if waking up from power management suspend state. Save power-on CPUID value in scratch CMOS.

D3 - If memory sizing module not executed, start memory refresh and do memory sizing in Bootblock code. Do additional chipset intialization. Re-enable CACHE. Verify that flat mode is enabled.

C7 - Early CPU init Exit

Are they compatable? What might be wrong with my system. Should I RMA the Mobo & RAM (per that thread) or should I also RMA the CPU?

I'm getting really frustrated & getting more impatient as the days go by. it's been 2 weeks and my friend can't give me a straight answer. Can someone please help me?

Reading through your old post I would say motherboard is the culprit. It is very rare that CPU's are bad so RMA-ing the board and ram should be sufficient.

So the CPU is compatible with the mobo even though has different part numbers?

Or are they the same?
I bought: HDZ955FBGMBOX
Compatible Version: HDZ955FBK4DGM(BE)


Are those the same thing? Is it compatible?

Yeah, both are the same.

Thanks to saint for answering my main question :) 

Thanks to rolli for confirming what I was thinking to do.
I will RMA the board & RAM.
