You are responding to a 4 year old thread.

If you have an i7-4790K, you have a Haswell refresh processor.  Using this processor, you probably need a bios update, at least bios 2001.  This information can be found on the asus website:

I can't tell you how grateful I am that you responded!!! Thank you!! So... I had the latest bios installed, 3602, and the problem occurred. Put the old processor back in and it fired right up. I just tried rolling it back bios version 2203 and got the same problem.. was having issues flashing 2001. It's looking like the processor arrived toasted.

Or the processor is not supported by your motherboard.
