[Problem] ASUS Maximus VIII Ranger with Intel 9980HK

Hello, I am attempting to get some new parts I ordered working correctly, the person I ordered the processor from gave me a BIOS binary file to flash for this motherboard I got and after putting everything together it turns on for about half a second and only displays 00 on the status display, I’m really unsure as to what I’ve done wrong, any help is great.

Thanks in advance.

@SolidLiquid : Welcome to the Win-RAID Forum!
Since your problem can only be solved by a BIOS modification, I have moved your request into the "BIOS Modding" Sub-Forum.
It may be a good idea to attach the BIOS you got from the CPU vendor to the start post.
Good luck!
