Is anything happening, such as power supply turning on or fans spinning?
Have you connected the 12v aux power?
Is the ram seated properly.
Per a google search and some forums, this board is specific to ram.
Since you purchased as a package, I would assume that the bios is correct.

The question is, how do you flash a BIOS when the board doesn't post?
You may need to borrow a processor from somewhere that the board already supports, so you can flash the BIOS that way.

Could the mobo function without the CPU just for a little bit?
Think about it.
The CPU (which stands for Central Processing Unit) is the driving brain of the computer. The motherboard is effectively its skull and nervous system.
As in a human being, the brain is essential. No brain = no human. A body will be present but won't be doing anything. Likewise in a computer, no CPU = no brain = no POST.
Sorry. There's not a lot else to suggest than has already been said, short of sending the board back to where you bought it from, getting a refund and buying it from somewhere else in the hope it has a newer BIOS already on it. However if the BIOS is relatively new and the stock in the online/offline shops has been sitting in the distribution chain for a while, it may be many months before a board with the new BIOS becomes available.
