My System Specs


Looks like the only BIOS ever released from Gigabyte for that board (F8) supports pretty much every AM3 cpu, so if the motherboard was fine with the old CPU you can try to take a step back and test-bench it with your Athlon to see if it functions as before. If so, you'll know the new CPU is probably a dud.
Not an AMD fanboy, just voting against Intel's practices with my wallet.
