I just got an AMD FX-8120 Zambezi 3.1GHz Socket AM3 125W Eight-Core Desktop Processor and can not find an Micro ATX motherboard that offers USB 3.0, SATA 6Gb/s and FX chip compliance without bios flash. Please, Can anyone help me here?

You won't find one. Arrange to borrow a sempron 140 or other low end am3 cpu; newegg had some sempron 130 with 512 cache oem open box for $17 recently. Or you may get a local computer shop to do it for you for a nominal fee.

Is it just because the chip is new or because the FX CPU's just are not being supported?

The cpu is too new for all the boards in stock to have the latest bios file it needs. It's a common problem. The new bulldozer cpus are different enough from the phenom II's to require a new bios file to post.
