Just installed my new 5950X on the Crosshair VIII Dark Hero.

Updated the BIOS and have done a fresh install of Windows.

As soon as Windows try to load it says There is an issue with my Devices and needs to go into recovery mode.

The same system was working fine with the 3950X

Any ideas why this is happening?

Thanks

I had the same, dropped my 5950x to replace a earlier 3 series and thought it would just be a straight replacement but my system it was very unstable. A complete reinstall of Windows seems to have solved it.
