I7 3820 + ga-x79-ud3 not booting!

Hello!

I've got a hold of a completely new ga-x79 and i7 3820, but when I start, the fans go on, but there is no speaker sound and the screen doesn't even start.

I can't get into BIOS, I've tried to change all memory slots with no luck, and booting without memory makes the speaker go beep.

I have taken out and in the Motherboard battery, and changed the GPU slot.

What can I do? Please help!

    I'm having that exact same problem. After doing a few days of troubleshooting, then researching, It looks like the BIOS installed on ga-x79-ud3 that we purchased may not support the i7-3820. From what it looks like you have two options. Either find a cpu that is supported by the boards current bios and update the bios or RMA the board back to gigabyte so they can install the new bios themselves. You can go to

    http://rma.gigabyte.us/DirectRMA/EndUser_Main.asp

    to request an RMA. It will probably take a few days and when they accept it and send you an e-mail you will get both a shipping label for the outside of the box as well as a paper to print, fill out, and stick inside the box.

    in a few hours here when my post office opens i'm sending off the board, with high hopes!

    Good luck to ya!
  3. Gigabyte promptly said no to my request for them.

    They redirected me to the store, who redirected me to Gigabyte, who said no and redirected me to the store, who said no.

  8. I got the board back and sure enough after the bios update it works, hope you got a good outcome as well!
  9. I was experiencing this problem , but I fixed it by setting my SSD as the first boot device (had OS installed) and I also plugged the motherboard speaker in. Then everything booted correctly.
