Ah...I'm familiar with this problem....this very problem instigated the research into the "wire-wrap" around the pin trick...

Essentially, the startup voltage is not high enough by default to supply the CPU with enough voltage to start. By using the wire-trick, the default motherboard values are over-ridden and the CPU can get the necessary amount of voltage....

I'll try to dig up an article or two which outlines the issue in more detail....
