Yes in know the answer.
The factory build in bios 281 of all DX79SI/DX79T0 from december 2011 do not POST with i7 3820 LGA 2011.
You need one 3930K or 3960X to update the bios up to 430 or higher.
Excellent, sending it in to get upgraded actually SHOULD fix the problem then (there aren't any decent computer shops around here, or I'd do it myself).
I'll update when I get the board back.
