The ondie A64 memory controller is pretty picky about which ram you use. Try another stick of ram before returning the processor, because incompatible ram would case the same kind of problems.

Depends actually, the CG steppings have far better memory compatibillity then the C0's.
All newcastles and late clawhammers have CG steppings

True, true, but the fact it's still more picky than the average Nforce2 board or i865/875 controller remains.

try clearing cmos
and then give it another go

my friend apparently broke a pin of the cpu, en thus no warranty
he then simply bought a new one

still no post though, but the mobo is geving me a long beep.
no error codes in the manual however.
i'll check the msi forums later on.
