1. it might work. i have the same motherboard but i am not running the fx series chips. 2. you might have to update the bios or even get an old AM3 chip if the fx chip does not work. 3. the motherboard only works with windows 8. i installed windows 7 on it and all the drivers. when i do the windows 7 service pack. i kept getting a blue screen of death. microsoft blamed asus, asus blamed microsoft. if you need more info on the board. goto newegg.com and read the review on their. good luck!!!

    Your component are technically compatible

    FX-8320 and the ram will fit nicely as the motherboard support it

    issues such agello24 could happen. Since Asus is a reputable maker, they should support better than above. Probably just a bad product, should try return it.

    Looking good. I would end up getting a 1866 DDR3 from G skill I think it about the same price.

    Oh about the motherboard you can ask newegg to update this motherboard. Or you can go to ebay and look for a person to flash BIOS for that motherboard I seen them around. I think they do it for cheap. just send your bios chip to them.
