Is the new board also an Asus board? Their Probe program doesn't work properly with non-Asus boards.

Just had that problem with a intel MB. I forgot to hook up the processor fan. More than one person said i fried the cpu because things just kept getting worse until i couldn't even get it to boot. finally replaced the Mb and everything worked the first time i hooked it all up. Everything was exactly the same except the MB. The newer Mb's do have temp controls that will shut down before damage is done to the proc. Its time to check the cpu heatsink for enough thermal compound and a good tight connection to the processor. Then fire it up and still see if the problem exists. If the Mb has a bad probe then your only recourse is to RMA the board for a replacement.
