see what happen is i was updating with windows update it got to the 10 update out of 11 and then the computer just flipped off on me, K I turned on an no video just 4 leds on my mobo active phase switching no northbridge led not showing on. so i reset cmos. and still nothing just 4 leds no north bridge led. Ok i then swapped the parts the ram the psu and still nothing. so i took the heatsink off cpu to see if its getting hot and u no what it wasn't an antoher thing am notgetting a light on my case power switch but i can still turn on with button ad yes i got it connected right. so what i did was switch it out with a old dell mobo and plug power switch connecter to mobo and the led work. so it has to be the mobo or (cpu hope not) so what can i do please help anyways it go's am going be ok with it being replaced with a 890gxm g65 which is good and better i hope..

reseat the processor make sure you have it pushed into the socket all the way. matching the triangle on the socket with the processor make sure there are not any bent pins clean and re apply the thermal paste and then boot up... after 3 motherboards i would consider that processor may have something wrong with it.. unless your just trying for an unreasonable over clock..
