Does anyone know if the Core i7-3770 is supposed to work in the Intel BOXDQ67SWB3 motherboard?
I saw that xbit-labs review of the ivy bridge cpus says they should all work in any LGA1155 socket motherboard. So, I bought a new i7-3770 and a new BOXDQ67SWB3, but it doesn't work. Upon powerup, absolutely nothing happens - no BIOS boot, no BIOS messages on the screen, ... nothing. A totally blank screen. I know that all the other components work (disk drives, graphics card, power supply, etc.) since they came from another working computer. And, they still work after I put tham back into that computer.
And more importantly, is it true that the new ivy bridge cpus are definitely incompatible with some LGA1155 chipsets? For example, the Q67? If so, it would seem to be extremely short-sighted: istn't it natural to believe that if the cpu fits into my motherboard's socket, that it should work.
