sounds like you got motherboards that were not flashed with current bios as the 3820 was the latest chip for x79 the boards probably wont support them til you update the bios
use the usb bios flash on the back of the boards to update the bios.you dont need to post or use a display.
format a usb thumb drive you fat32 download the latest bios for your boards put them on the usb drive un-compressed with nothing elts on the flash drive.
then push and hold the bios flash button til the light on it changes(like 2 sec) and wait for it to finish,then the boards should post.CPU----Intel i7 3820 (@4.3)
