I installed some new components today (CPU & GPU) and my motherboard is complaining that the new CPU is incompatible, despite the fact that I can boot and operate normally, the extra power from both components is certainly kicking in and I'm getting great performance in every game I have tested. I have tried upgrading the BIOS to the latest version from the ASUS site, and although it upgraded it still claims that there is a compatibility issue. What should I do? If nothing, how do I disable the notification?

I checked that myself, surely though if it boots and runs then it's fine? Unless there are some problems that could be had in the future.

Well the board doesn't support any of the 125 watt or this 140 watt processor, there's probably a good reason for that.

Not necessarily, it could be taxing the motherboard more heavily and could lead to stability problems or failure.
