I have asked for help before on this project, and before I scrap the whole thing need to make sure I am not missing something. Due to my budget I have been trying to use what parts I have to put together an older school set up mainly for older games and internet use. I have an Asus M2N-e MB, a Phenom II x4 965 BE and a Corsair 650TX PSU. I downloaded the newest Bios from Asus for this board(5001) into my documents and extracted it (unzipped it)? Been a while since I did this so bear with me. I cleaned the CPU cap, and tinted it and put the heat sink on. When I fire it up the case fans all come on and then turn off after 3 seconds and that's it. I realize that technically this CPU is not listed as one that has been verified to work, but searching the internet I have found others claiming it did. I figured that it did not work due to wattage issue but have heard that the m2n-e can support a 125 watt CPU. Did I not do something all the way with the Bios, and or are others just flat out wrong about this CPU actually working with this set-up. Also should note that the PSU is in excellent working order so it's above suspicion. Sorry for the long story, and thanks.
