I have an Intel DZ68BC mainboard, with an Intel Core i5-2500K with an Intel RTZ thermal Solution 2011LC cooler. Earlier this week, to resolve some issues, I updated the BIOS to BCZ6810H.86A.0037.2012.0711.1949.
On power up, there is a dense screen of text that flashes by at less than 1 second. I eventually recorded the screen with my video camera. After a fair amount of struggle, I managed to freeze the screen of text, but as luck would have it, some of it is not legible. I could make out that it is some warning about an unsupported processor and/or a mini-ATX chassis. Neither of which I believe is try. There is a Yes/No prompt, but as I said, it just flashes past.
My apologies. I just spotted a typo. The message refers tot a mini-ITX chassis, while I have this installed in a Fractal Desigh Define R3 mid-tower chassis. Clearly the message somehow identifies something in my setup as incorrect, But I can't figure out what it might be, Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
Well, thank you for that. Now I feel better. I'm beginning to realize that I should stick to boards like Asus or Asrock or (anybody else) since I've had more trouble with my Intel board builds that I ever have with non-Intel boards and Intel processors.
And the cheap way one gets brushed off by any form of real tech support is also quite annoying.
I have two builds with an MSI board and a Gigabyte board, and I hardly ever have any issues with those. SIlly me for thinking that Intel would design their boards and processors to work together. (and of course, test it!)
