  1. Yes, it should work:
    3 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (dual x16 or x16/x8/x8) *1
    1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (x4 mode, black)
    1 x PCIe 2.0 x1
    1 x PCI

    For the FX 8320 you might need to use the flashback for updating the BIOS.

  3. It's a feature that allows you to update the BIOS when the CPU is not supported by the board's current BIOS version.

    Yes, When receiving the board, there's a barcode sticker on it. The last 4 digits on that sticker stand for the BIOS version. If older than 1006, then save the unzipped file on a FAT formatted USB drive. Rename it to ST990R20.CAP.
    Plug the drive in the designated USB Flashback port. Don't start the board. Just make sure that the power cables are connected to the motherboard and the power supply is switched on.
    Press the Flashback button for 3 seconds and wait until the process finishes.
    That's all.
