Hello,
I upgraded the bios to newest version but still when i insert core i5 3470 it detects it and when prompted to setup it just turns off.
i cant enter the bios, unless i switch back to my old cpu (pentium g620).
is it possible that i5 3470 isnt working properly.
Any help would be appreciated.

Did you buy the cpu used? What exact bios version do you have?

Yes, with that bios version cpu would be supported. Very most likely the cpu is bad then.
