    you should have filled in an rma ticket explaining that the mb wont work with a 6core chip due to an old outdated bios on the mb and demanded they flashed the bios for you,and the shop where you purchased it should have done this free of charge also

I tried to get GIGABYTE Distributor here in the Philippines to fix this and I did send GIGABYTE an email via their web site and the response was not helpful at all. Basically the response was along the lines of go back to where you bought the item we can't be bothered. GIGABYTE knew about this problem yet never made any attempt to either recall the board or at least send out a simple sticker that could have been put on the box that made mention of that problem. Their distributors here in the Philippines won't do anything with this board to solve this problem, This will be the last item I ever buy from GIGABYTE and I plan to make a point of letting everyone know how poorly they treat their customers. Now I know why everyone I talked to including the shop I bought from told me to buy ASUS's Rampage MB. I should have listened.
    920 would be best, and should be easier for you to find. You don't have any buddies that could come over and bring a CPU, or you go to there house?

    Asus board would have the same issue if you bought a board that had an older BIOS, so brand does not matter.

    Take the board back to the shop and have them flash it for you. Even if they charge you, it'll be cheaper than buying a CPU.

    My two cents.
    - My System Specs -
    GA-X58A-UD5 MB (F6 bios)
    Core i7-950 @ 3.8GHz Processor
    Noctua NH-C12P SE14 CPU Cooler
    6 gig Corsair Dominator - TR3X6G1600C8D
    ATI Radeon HD6950 2Gig Video Card
    Creative X-Fi Titanium Pro Souncard
    Antec Signature SG-850 PS
    Cooler Master HAF X
    Win7 Ult x64

    Its pretty terrible, that a shop
    , couldnt even be bothered to help you out doing this.

    Im sure if they had a suitable test chip lying around, they could of done it.

    I mean even if they charged a very small fee, would of been ok.

    Ive not totally given up hope on peoples kindness, but sometimes my patience is deffinately tried.

    i would send back say, its not fit for purpose etc etc.

    Gigabyte support also pretty useless for me also,

    My issue never got solved directly from them, and they still had cheek when i gave up, to ask if there was anything else they could help me with.
    I was like well you havent helped me with my initial problems.

    anyway, was able to get alot of help on this forum anyway, and where not support to fix issue sometimes, deffo good ideas and atleast i felt people on here deffo cared.

    Support is one of my main points now when purchasing, no support on a brilliant product is pointless.

    Sorry for moaning....
