Would this be due to a lack of a bios update for the new chipset? What is the recommended fix....install previous chip, update bios, and then install new cpu? I'm just worried that something could have been bricked due to the lack of any power. I receive a quick light to the mobo but not an indicator light or anything, just the led strip for 1 second. The PC case has the power button illuminated but thats it. Any ideas? Is this a normal thing when upgrading chips without a bios upgrade?
If the BIOS has not been updated since purchasing the motherboard, that is probably where I would start.
Luckily, you shouldn't need to swap CPUs for this. Here's Gigabyte's guide on using QFlash:
Be very careful to make sure that you do not lose power when you are updating your BIOS.
I would also recommend that all your PSU cables are connected to the motherboard properly. I'd specifically make sure that your CPU 8-pin and your Motherboard 24-pin are connected tightly.
Let us know if this works for you!
Greetings, it's possible this is BIOS related. Gigabyte lists their CPU support directly on their website and what BIOS version is needed for each processor. https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/X570-AORUS-PRO-WIFI-rev-10/support#support-cpu
It appears the 5800X is supported after BIOS version F30 while the 3700X is supported from version F3 (which appears to be the one released with the board). If the BIOS is not updated to support the processor, it would indeed fail to boot up properly.
It appears this board supports Q-Flash so upgrading the BIOS should be quite simple! Here is a guide from Gigabyte on that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=449N8h2GdlU A text version can typically be found in the product manual: https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/X570-AORUS-PRO-WIFI-rev-10/support#support-manual
I hope this helps!
