Hi,
Probably 0813. But you can check. On the motherboard there's a sticker with a barcode. The last 4 digits stand for the BIOS version.
Do the CPU and the case fans spin? 
Can you detail the components (CPU, RAM, PSU, GPU)?

Thanks for the reply

The CPU is an AMD FX 8120. Crucial 2 4GB. GPU an ATI 6850. 500 watt PSU.

Nothing spins. Just the CPU light flickers Once. But the motherboard standby light is on.

Thank You

Nick

I looked for that barcode but there was nothing. There is a rev 1.0.1 on the board next to the name of the board. Sorry but no barcodes.


Thanks

Nick.

Some thoughts:
500 W might not be enough for the system.
Since no fan spinning, then I would check: if both power cables and the power and reset wires are properly connected.
There's a PSU paper clip test (search on youtube for how to).
The sticker might be covered by the graphics card.

Hi

I have just been through the rest of the posts about the motherboards. I think it could be that the motherboard is not recognising the processor.

http://vip.asus.com/forum/view.aspx?id=20111021101940934&board_id=1&model=M5A99X+EVO&page=1&SLanguage=en-us

Can anyone tell me if putting in a older processor gets recognised please.

Cheers

Nick.

Hi Nick..

Your board was manufactured in December of 2011... 

M5A99X EVO BIOS 0901       2011.12.07 
M5A99X EVO BIOS 0813       2011.11.16 

If it was manufactured prior to December 7th, then it has 0813.  If it was manufactured after December 7th, then it has 0901.

FX-8120(FD8120FRW8KGU),3.1GHz,8C,125W,rev.B2G,AM3+ ALL
0813
FX-8120(FD8120WMW8KGU),3.1GHz,8C,95W,rev.B2G,AM3+ ALL
0813

In either case, the FX-8120 is supported.. so I expect something else is going on in your system... 

Certainly a supported non FX processor should work..
