With the 8350 installed, and the computer is powered on, it displays FF, then begins to flash shortly after. It has not done anymore than that whatsoever. Whether I leave it on for 30mins or turn it off and back on multiple times.
Also I have swapped between the two processors at least 30 times. Been trying to make it work for approx 15hours + so far.
I've given up for now and RMA'd the CPU. The new one should arrive Jan 2nd.
Too add about your point of interest, I run a lot of VMs, my computer also doubles as a media server for my home, and I play quite a few games, so I'm sure I'll notice a difference. (Also GFX card will be the next item upgraded eventually)
I'm also RMAing the motherboard per MSI's instructions, because I've just noticed the analog audio ports do not work. I just received the refurb'd board yesterday evening and had not noticed not having any sound since I was not using the computer, and instead trying to get the 8350 to post.
After using the computer with the quad installed for a few hours now, the audio is the only issue I've run into so far. So hoping after the RMA of the two products, that I receive a combination that will work correctly.
